The veteran crew chief joined Turn One Racing this week as crew chief for driver Dakoda Armstrong and the No. 60 WinField Silverado in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Shear joins Armstrong and Turn One immediately for the second half of the season, after resigning from ThorSport Racing’s No. 98 team just over a week ago. He brings a wealth of knowledge to the operation, with 143 career Truck Series starts on his resume.
"I'm excited to get this opportunity to work with Joe Shear, Jr. for the rest of the season," said Armstrong, who drove a third truck out of the ThorSport stable a year ago. "I've had an indirect working relationship with him in the past, but I'm looking forward to what he can do to help propel our WinField Silverado to the next level. He's got a ton of experience and will definitely bring a lot to the table for this team. Michigan has been a pretty good track for me in the past, so I'm looking forward to starting this new partnership there in two weeks."
Armstrong currently sits 12th in NCWTS driver point standings, 20 points out of 10th. His best performance this season was a seventh at Martinsville Speedway in April.
