John Wes Townley will sit out the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Michigan International Speedway this weekend after a crash in ARCA qualifying at Pocono Raceway on August 1.
Former NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion Travis Kvapil will drive the No. 05 Zaxby’s Toyota Tundra at MIS in place of Townley.
“It is really hard sitting out and watching someone else drive your truck,” said Townley today. “I am hoping to be back behind the wheel of the No. 05 Zaxby’s truck Wednesday at Bristol.”
Kvapil has two wins, three Top-5 and four Top-10 finishes in four Camping World Truck Series starts on the two-mile Michigan race track. The Careers for Veterans 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race is slated to begin at 12:30 p.m. ET Saturday.
