Sandusky, Ohio (February 3, 2016) – Calgary, Alberta, Canada native, Cameron Hayley, will return to ThorSport Racing and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) in 2016, piloting the No. 13 Cabinets by Hayley Toyota Tundra. Hayley, who competed for Sunoco Rookie of the Year honors in 2015, finished sixth in the championship point standings, amassing four top-five and 13 top-10 finishes.
” I’m expecting big things out of my ThorSport Racing team in 2016,” said Cameron Hayley, driver of the No. 13 Toyota Tundra. “Last year was a big learning year for me; whether it was learning the race tracks or learning how to drive these Tundra’s. I plan to build on the experience I gained in my first full-time season, and be a strong contender for victory lane each and every week. I’ll have a new crew chief and team this year, but everyone is hungry to win. I think this can be a championship-contending season for me. I can’t thank Duke and Rhonda Thorson enough for allowing me to drive their Tundra’s for a second season, and I look for a lot of good things to come.”
Hayley’s 2016 campaign will be led by crew chief, Eddie Troconis. Troconis, who has an engineering background, spent the last three NCWTS seasons as a race engineer at Kyle Busch Motorsports, and called the shots for drivers such as Christopher Bell, Gray Gaulding and Matt Tift in 2015. In 12 NCWTS races, the San Antonio, Texas native, has collected one top-five and five top-10 finishes.
Hayley will complete the roster for the Sandusky, Ohio-based team for the 2016 NCWTS season. Rounding out ThorSport Racing’s stable of drivers will be Ben Rhodes, driver of the No. 41 Alpha Energy Solutions Toyota Tundra. Two-time NCWTS champion, Matt Crafton, who will pilot the No. 88 Menards Toyota Tundra, and Rico Abreu who will pilot the No. 98 CURB Records Toyota Tundra.
As the longest tenured team in the NCWTS garage, ThorSport Racing will kick off its 21st season of competition in the season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway on Friday, Feb. 19. All the action will be televised live on FOX Sports 1, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR channel 90.
