Boston Departs from KBM; Bell in for Kentucky
The Camping World Truck Series garage area will be missing a familiar face this weekend after Kyle Busch Motorsports has parted with @jbossracing.
After nine races this season, Boston had earned four top-10 finishes and sat 12th in the points entering Kentucky.
“Zloop breached its agreement with Kyle Busch Motorsports and failed to cure, forcing Kyle Busch Motorsports to terminate the agreement,” the team said in a statement. “Notwithstanding this disappointing turn of events, the Kyle Busch Motorsports № 54 Toyota Tundra will continue to compete for the remainder of the year.”
The No. 54 team will not miss a beat at Kentucky as @CBellRacing21 has been called upon to pilot the truck. Bell made his Truck Series debut at Iowa Speedway earlier this year for KBM and brought home a fifth place finish.
“It’s going to be a new experience for me with the aero package, and I’ve never run a mile-and-a-half track,” Bell said in a release. “My plan is to just go out there, finish the race and try to learn how the air affects the trucks as much as I can.
“I’ve been watching a lot of videos of mile-and-a-half races to see how the trucks react whenever they are around other trucks. As far as driving the truck, I don’t think it will be an issue. I just have to continue learning how the air affects them. I have great KBM teammates with Erik (Jones) and Daniel (Suarez), who I’m sure will be valuable resources when we get to the track.”
