Riggs Returns To RBR Truck At CMS
CERRO GORDO, N.C. – Scott Riggs will pilot the Ricky Benton Racing Enterprises No. 92 BTS Tire and Wheel Distributors/Goodyear FleetHQ/Wynn’s Ford as the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series goes to Charlotte Motor Speedway for the N.C. Education Lottery 200 on May 16.
Ross Chastain drove the truck at Daytona and Martinsville. The team did not enter last week’s race at Kansas Speedway.
“It’s good to be behind the wheel again,” said Riggs. “I am very appreciative of the opportunity that Ricky (Benton) has given me to drive the truck at Charlotte. This team has improved tremendously with the switch to Ford and bringing in (crew chief) Trip (Bruce) during the offseason. I am looking forward to a strong run.”
“We have had some success with Scott behind the wheel,” said Benton, “and we have made some strides with our program since he was with us last fall. He is a veteran driver and I think he will give us a good idea of where we are in the development of our program.”
The No. 92 will be carrying a special decal on the hood at Charlotte honoring long-time Black’s Tire and RBR employee Kenny “Ace” Bullard, who passed away on May 3 after a battle with cancer.
Bullard was well known around local short tracks in North and South Carolina. He served as southeast regional manager for Black’s Tire and Auto Service for 25 years.
“Kenny has been a huge part of what we have done at RBR from the beginning,” said Benton, “but more importantly, he was my best friend and part of our family. He helped train my sons, Ricky, Ryan and Jeremy when they came to work at Black’s Tire.”
