MOORESVILLE, N.C. (Sept. 14, 2015) – Kyle Larson has been tabbed to drive the No. 00 Haas Automation Chevrolet Silverado in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race at Chicagoland Speedway on Sept. 18, JR Motorsports announced today. 

A three-time winner across NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) and NCWTS competition, the event marks Larson’s first series start since earning a runner-up finish at Homestead-Miami Speedway in 2014.  In nine career NCWTS starts, Larson has notched one victory (Rockingham Speedway in 2013), four top-five and six top-10 finishes with two poles.

“Chicago is one of my favorite racetracks and the trucks are fun, close racing,” said Larson.  “I’ve been close to winning a few truck races, but I’ve only won one.  JRM’s truck program has been really fast this year. They’ve won some races and they’re competitive every race, and I’m looking forward to having a good shot of winning for them.”

Larson is currently racing full-time in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) for Chip Ganassi Racing.  His resume includes Rookie of the Year honors in both NSCS and NXS competition.  Larson joins Alex Bowman, Cole Custer, Kevin Harvick and Kasey Kahne as drivers of the No. 00 Haas Automation Chevrolet.  In 2015, the team has scored two victories, one with Kahne at Charlotte Motor Speedway and the second with Custer at Gateway Motorsports Park.  In 10 starts this season, the No. 00 has earned three top-five and five top-10 finishes.

Custer, the team’s primary driver, will resume driving duties next weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and finish out the year at Martinsville Speedway (Oct. 31) and Phoenix International Raceway (Nov. 13).
