Corey Heim will not drive the No. 11 truck this weekend at WWT Raceway in St. Louis. The driver is sidelined due to illness.

Heim stated via social media, “Thank you everyone for the messages, as well as TRICON Garage and Toyota Racing for the continued support. Really tough to come to terms with missing a race but I know it’s the right decision for my health. Excited to be back soon!”

Jesse Love will jump into the cockpit of the No. 11 truck. It will be his NASCAR Truck Series debut.

The driver was already scheduled to race this weekend in the No. 1 truck. Instead, Toni Breidinger will drive the No. 1 truck.

Love has 5 career ARCA Menards Series wins and another 5 in the ARCA West Series.
