MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Ohio driver Jimmy Weller will return to SS Green Light Racing for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season.

Weller spent 2013 splitting time racing near his Ohio home and the SS Green Light Racing shop, learning the ins and outs of NASCAR racing while making five starts for the team, including a best finish of 17th at the season-ending Ford EcoBoost 200 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Weller will compete in a minimum of 12 races behind the wheel of the No. 08 Silverado beginning with the 2014 opening Nextera Energy Resources 250 Feb. 21 at Daytona Int’l Speedway.

The second-generation driver began his driving career in 2002 and has run in several different divisions including modifieds and sprint cars on dirt and numerous late models divisions on asphalt. Weller has made more than 20 starts in the NASCAR K&N Pros Series East.

The SS Green Light Teams will run primarily Chevrolet Silverado trucks with power from Mark Smith’s Pro Motors.

“We are going to run at least 12 races with Bobby Dotter. It’s an awesome deal. I think we are going to run most of the bigger race tracks,” Weller said. “It all came together real quick and Bobby agreed to what we have going on. It will be my first time at most of these tracks other than Gateway; which I ran on once a long time ago. Daytona is going to be real fun, I’m looking forward to learning the drafting.”

Jason Miller has returned to the SS Green Light Team and will guide Weller.

“I’m looking forward to working with Jason, everybody says he is a great guy to work with and we have gotten along very well at the shop so far. We’ve been cutting it up with each other an having a lot of fun,” concluded Weller. “I’m really looking forward to this season, I think it’s going to be a good year for everybody.”
