Four Races For Dollar General On No. 51
MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Dollar General will be the primary sponsor of the No. 51 Kyle Busch Motorsports Tundra in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series for four races this season.
Owner-driver Kyle Busch will be behind the wheel for three of the events with Erik Jones driving the fourth. Dollar General will sponsor the No. 51 Toyota Tundra at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway, Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Ill. with Kyle Busch and in the Nov. 7 race at Phoenix (Ariz.) Int’l Raceway with Erik Jones.
The reigning Truck Series Owner’s champions are the defending race winners in three of the four races of these races with Kyle Busch scoring the victory in last year’s race at Bristol in August and Chicagoland in September. Jones became the youngest winner in Truck Series history when he drove to victory in November at Phoenix Int’l Raceway.
Busch ranks second in Truck Series history with 36 victories, including the 2014 season opener at Daytona (Fla.) Int’ Speedway, and has finished first or second in 50 percent of his 116 career starts.
Jones, who debuted in the Truck Series last March, has finished inside the top 10 in all five of his career starts, including the historic win at Phoenix and a runner-up finish at Iowa Speedway in Newton last July.
Since 2010, KBM has compiled six wins and 15 top-five finishes across 28 races with Dollar General as the primary sponsor.
