Niece Motorsports will have two full-time NASCAR Camping World Truck Series entries in 2018 as Justin Fontaine will drive the No. 45 Chevrolet Silverado alongside Austin Wayne Self.

“This is an exciting time in my career and I believe I’m ready for this next challenge with Niece Motorsports,” Fontaine said. “I know I have a lot to learn, but with the leadership of Niece Motorsports and the support of my management team at AM Racing, I believe I can transition well and produce some good results in my rookie season.”

After making his series debut at Martinsville Speedway in 2016, he has since made two more starts, including a 15th-place finish at Pocono Raceway. On top of his truck experience, he ran a partial ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards schedule last year. 

“We are thrilled to have Justin join the team next season,” said team owner Al Niece. “In speaking with Justin, his excitement for the 2018 season is contagious. As a group we are really looking forward to getting this season started. There’s a lot of work to be done, but we have a solid group who’s ready to hit the ground running.”

Marketing partners and a crew chief for Fontaine will be named at a later date.
