Larson adds another race to his schedule for the Bristol Motor Speedway dirt track
Kyle Larson has a full schedule on deck for the Bristol Motor Speedway dirt track. That includes running a super dirt late model tjis Friday and Saturday in the Bristol Dirt Nationals.
As of a few moments ago, Larson has added the NASCAR Truck Series to that list. He’ll run the Truck race during NASCAR weekend on March 27th.
The Elk Grove, Calif. native will pilot the No. 44 truck fielded by Niece Motorsports. The truck will be sponsored by Rich Mar Florist / CircleBDiecast.com.

Kyle Larson comments
“I really appreciate the opportunity given by Niece Motorsports,” Kyle Larson said. “I’m excited to get back into a truck at one of my favorite race tracks.”
In 2020, Larson claimed 43 wins on dirt track across the country. He had a win percentage over 50%. The wins came in a wide variety of cars from dirt late models, midgets, sprint cars and silver crown.
The driver is a 7 time winner in the NASCAR Cup Series. However, he hasn;t run a truck series event since 2016.
Two weeks ago, Larson picked up his first win with his new NASCAR Cup Series team, Hendrick Motorsports. His 7th win came at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in a tribute paint scheme to the late Ricky Hendrick.
“We’re looking forward to taking part in this historic event for the Truck Series and are excited to be alongside Kyle for what is sure to be a stellar performance,” said Jonathan Morrissey, co-owner of Rich Mar Florist.
Morrissey added, “This is a huge announcement for Rich Mar Florist Racing Nation and those that support our involvement in NASCAR. We are extremely thankful for this partnership with Niece Motorsports and are thrilled to share this historic moment together.”
Larson won a NASCAR Truck Series race on the dirt in the past. He claimed the 2016 win at Eldora Speedway.
