Truex on Racing at COTA: “I’m excited for the challenge this weekend at COTA,” said Ryan Truex. “I’m looking forward to being able to get on track in our Freightliner/Marquis Chevrolet and get some practice in before we race on Saturday, hopefully it will really help us get acclimated to the course. We are all hoping to put on a good race for Al [Niece], with him being based so close by.”
While this weekend’s race is Truex’s first start at the Austin road course, Truex has three road course starts to his credit in the Truck Series. His best result was a fifth-place finish at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park in 2017.
The New Jersey native has six NASCAR Xfinity Series starts at road courses including the Charlotte Motor Speedway Road Course, Road America, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, and Watkins Glen International. His best road course finish in the series was a fifth-place result at Mid-Ohio in 2018.
In addition, Truex has two NASCAR Cup Series road course starts coming at Sonoma Raceway and Watkins Glen International, both in 2014.
On the Truck: Truex will carry both the Freightliner and Marquis colors this weekend at Circuit of the Americas.
