Howie DiSavino III Quote;
“I’m incredibly humbled about this opportunity to not only compete in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series with Jordan Anderson Racing but for the chance to race in front of my family, friends and partners”
“This is undoubtedly the biggest race of my career, but I am up for the challenge.”
“Richmond is going to be an extremely competitive race and tire management will be key. Fortunately, I have surrounded myself with good people who are adequately helping me prepare to make Richmond a successful weekend both on and off the track.”
“I just want to do a great job for Jordan (Anderson) and our partners KEES Vacations and Bud’s Heating & Air Conditioning and with the hope to do some more Truck Series racing throughout the 2021 season.”
“Just to finish the race,” he said of his primary goal. “If I finish all 250 laps, run the best race that I can, I’m looking for a top 25, personally, for my first truck race. I know the trucks have a stout field.”
Jordan Anderson Quote;
“I have been keeping my eye on Howie for a little while now, and when Austin (Theriault, manager) said he was available and exploring NASCAR opportunities, I wanted to jump at having him make his NASCAR debut in one of our trucks”
“My team and I have built this team from the ground up, and Howie shares the drive and determination that I admire in a driver. I’m looking forward to seeing him be successful.”
– Chassis; JAR will bring chassis No. 008 for DiSavino to compete with in Saturday afternoon’s Toyota Care 250 at Richmond Raceway. Having last competed for JAR in March 2021 in the FR8 Auctions 200 at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Chassis No. 008 would earn a Top-25 finish being credited with the 25th position. Chassis No. 008 would race four times during the 2020 campaign at Kansas, Michigan, Richmond, and Phoenix. In the most unlikely of situations Chassis No. 008 was unloaded as a backup truck in the July Kansas double-header in which it would earn its best finish of the year with a 15th place finish.
