“I competed against Front Row for wins this past season, and I know how competitive the team is,” stated Zane Smith, the 2021 The Majority Of Popular Chauffeur in the NASCAR Outdoor Camping World Series. “Bob Jenkins has given me a wonderful opportunity to race for the truck series championship again. More importantly, there is an opportunity to grow with them in the future.”
Chandler Smith, 19, completed eighth in points. He won 2 races, scoring triumphes at Bristol and Phoenix. Danny Stockman once again will be Chandler Smith’s team chief. Safelite Vehicle Glass will be the main sponsor for 15 races.
“I’m really excited to be back partnered with Safelite and KBM for a second full-time season and ready for another run at a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship,” Chandler Smith stated in a declaration from the group. “Danny and I built something over the course of the year and really hit our stride late in the season. We’re looking forward to carrying that momentum over to starting 2022 strong. I feel that having some form of practice and qualifying at all the races next season will be big for our No. 18 Safelite team.”
Group owner Kyle Busch stated of having Chandler Smith back in 2022: “Chandler finished the 2021 season strong by winning twice over the last five races, and we’re confident that he and Danny will be able to pick up right where they left off next year. It was awesome for us to be able to get Safelite into victory lane and celebrate with them multiple times in 2021 as they really support their racing program. I know that everyone on the No. 18 Safelite team is working hard to ensure we continue winning and push to be one of the four teams competing for a championship at Phoenix.”
Purdy, 22, completed 19th in the points this previous season. He put a career-high sixth at Entrance. With the relocation, Purdy will drive the No. 61 for Hattori. Sponsor BAMA Buggies will join him throughout the 2022 season.
“I couldn’t be more excited to join the HRE team,” Purdy stated in a declaration from the group. “They have consistently won races and been a weekly contender for the last several years. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to race with this group in 2022.”
Extra information, consisting of Purdy’s team chief, will be revealed at a later date.
Fogleman, 21, was 20th in points this previous season and scored a win at Talladega.
“I’m looking forward to being with On Point Motorsports,” Fogleman stated in a declaration. “I know everybody that works here is dedicated to racing just like I am. They’re willing to work hard and use their resources, and they’ve had success in the previous season. I’m hoping to build on that.”
