Chastain brings the #45 TrüNorth/Paul Jr Designs Chevrolet Colorado truck to victory lane
CHARLOTTE, NC (May 14, 2019) – TrüNorth Warranty™ congratulates Niece Motorsports’ driver, Ross Chastain, on capturing his first NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) victory Friday night at Kansas Speedway. Chastain crossed the finish line in the #45 TrüNorth/Paul Jr Designs Chevrolet Silverado to secure his first victory in the series in his 66th start. The only driver to finish in the top-10 in each of the first seven NGOTS races of the season, Chastain was able to capitalize and take over the lead when the first-place truck ran out of fuel with three laps to go.
“This is what sports is all about,” said Chastain. “We had the world by the tail last fall, and everything got taken away from us. We didn’t quit, though. I’m going to celebrate this one a lot more than I did the last one.”
“We couldn’t be happier for Ross and the entire Niece Motorsports team,” said TrüNorth Global™ CEO, William Eskridge. “Watching the #45 TrüNorth/Paul Jr Designs Chevrolet Silverado cross the finish line Friday night was a huge moment. We’re excited to be a part of this racing program and the opportunities it brings to continually engage with our dealers and warranty customers around the country. Seeing the #45 truck in victory lane was just the icing on the cake.”
