Johnny Sauter on Friday’s Race at Texas Motor Speedway: “I’m excited to be back with Phil Gould and this Niece Motorsports team,” said Sauter. “We had such a fast truck in Daytona, so I’m looking forward to getting back on track in our Karl Chevrolet Silverado. I really enjoy racing at Texas – we’re going to do everything we can to get this Chevrolet in Victory Lane for Al Niece and the whole Niece Motorsports organization.”

By The Numbers: Friday’s race marks Sauter’s 27th NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series start at Texas Motor Speedway. In his previous 26 starts, he has earned five wins, four poles, and 11 top-five finishes. In addition, the Wisconsin native has 17 top-10 finishes and has led 371 laps at the 1.5-mile track.

Recapping the Last Race: Kaden Honeycutt and the No. 45 team showed speed in Friday afternoon’s lone practice session, putting up the 10th quickest lap of the session. Honeycutt qualified 17th in the No. 45 Chevy Accessories Silverado for his third NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series start of the season. Although passing at the Virginia short track was tough, Honeycutt worked his way through traffic, earning stage points in both stage one and stage two. Late in the race, Honeycutt was involved in a spin, which left him mired in the pack. Honeycutt worked his way through the field again, ending the night in ninth-place.

Kaden Honeycutt on Last Race at Martinsville Speedway: “Ninth-place tonight in our No. 45 Chevy Accessories Silverado, in a wild, chaotic race. Our truck was great all night scoring stage points in both stages. Then, making our way through the field, I made a mistake on the 43 after I saw it and spun. Thank you, Niece Motorsports, for a fast truck.”
