Todd Shafer Set For Truck Series Return
MOORESVILLE, N.C. – After a two-year absence from NASCAR racing, veteran Ohio racer Todd Shafer will return to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this Friday night at the Kansas Speedway.
Shafer is scheduled to run several races for the Bobby Dotter’s SS Green Light Racing in the No. 08 entry this season, beginning with the SFP 250 at Kansas Speedway. Shafer began racing at the age of 8 and has raced in a wide variety of vehicles for nearly 30 years including micro-sprints, the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series, asphalt late models, ARCA and both the NASCAR Nationwide Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
His last start in the Truck Series came at Iowa Speedway in 2012 where he was the victim of another driver’s misfortune.
“I’ve been racing my whole life,” Shafer explained. “My priorities now are my family and my business but I still enjoy getting behind the wheel especially at mile and a half speedways. We are planning to run several races with SS Green Light Racing this summer.”
When he’s not at the track, Shafer is busy with his business Thunder Exhaust, which manufacturers low-profile NASCAR style exhaust tips for most any vehicle. Thunder Exhaust will serve as his sponsor this weekend at Kansas Speedway.
