Niece Motorsports confirms Kaden Honeycutt for Pocono

Kaden Honeycutt has joined Niece Motorsports for Saturday’s NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pennsylvania.

Kaden Honeycutt will be racing for Niece Motorsports’ #44 Chevrolet Camaro RST on July 22 at Pocono Raceway, marking his third different NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series team of 2023. This comes after he qualified the truck 17th Friday.

Honeycutt participated in seven of the first ten Truck Series events this season collecting two top-10 results, including ninth place in the dirt race at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway. Honeycutt participated in five of the events with Roper Racing and two with Young’s Motorsports. Honeycutt has made a total of 16 Truck Series starts in his career since 2022, earning three top-10 finishes.

“I’m excited to get back behind the wheel and am extremely thankful to Al Niece and everyone at Niece Motorsports for the opportunity,” said Honeycutt.

“We’re hopeful that we can get some more partners to come on board and make some more starts this season.

“I’ve been working at the shop the last few months, so I know how hard this organisation is working to field fast trucks. I’m looking forward to Pocono.”

Honeycutt debuted in the Xfinity series for CHK Racing in April at Martinsville. However, after 83 laps he was eliminated due to an engine problem.

“Kaden has really impressed a lot of people in the Truck Series this season, so we are happy to have him behind the wheel of one of our Chevrolets,” commented Niece Motorsports general manager Cody Efaw.

“Our team is working hard to build the fastest trucks we can. We visited Victory Lane at Pocono in 2019 and we’re looking for more of the same next weekend.”

Niece’s #44, which was largely driven by Kris Wright until Chad Chastain and Bayley Currey concluded the year, came in twenty-eighth in the 2022 owner points.

Its first championship battle this year will be in Pocono.
