Ty Dillon has signed with Rackley W.A.R. to drive the No. 25 truck in the NASCAR Truck Series starting 2024.
Ty Dillon will join the Rackley W.A.R. organization for the 2024 season, marking his first full-time NASCAR Truck Series racing in almost ten years.
Starting with the Daytona season opener in February, Dillon who is the grandson to legendary team owner Richard Childress, will pilot Rackley’s No. 25 Chevrolet in the next season.
Dillon raced in the Cup Series with Spire Motorsports last season. Before that, he also ran full-time with Petty GMS Motorsports and Germain Racing. He previously got into Truck racing in 2013, when he drove for Richard Childress Racing and concluded with two victories and runner-up in the season standings.
“I’m excited to go back to the Truck Series and compete in the series that got it all started for me,” Dillon said. “I have a lot of good memories from earlier in my career with winning races and poles, and our goal is to create more this season.
“Rackley W.A.R. has built a solid foundation and it’s an honor to be a part of taking them to the winning level they want to be at. I’m very appreciative of this opportunity and ready to get started in Daytona.”
Rackley W.A.R. is about to start its fourth season of truck racing in the NASCAR. Their first postseason trip came in 2023.
“We are excited to announce Ty Dillon as the driver for Rackley W.A.R. in the NASCAR Truck Series,” President and Chief Operating Officer Willie Allen said. “Ty’s exceptional talent is a perfect fit for our team as we elevate our engineering and technological capabilities to new heights.
“We’re investing in cutting-edge technology and innovative engineering to ensure Ty has one the most competitive trucks on the track.
“This season marks a new chapter for our team. We’re ready to showcase our progress and for a championship run.
“We look forward to making this season the new benchmark in our racing history.”
Rackley W.A.R. Chief Executive Officer Curtis Sutton said: “Racing in the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN® Truck Series is extremely competitive.
“Over these last three years, we have learned a ton of what to do and what not to do.
“I believe we have put a team together with Ty Dillon behind the wheel of the No. 25 Chevrolet Silverado, where great things are in store in 2024 for this team, our sponsors and everyone who supports this organization, including Chevrolet Motorsports.”
Matt DiBenedetto drove the No. 25 truck in the previous season. However DiBenedetto’s contract was terminated shortly after the squad got eliminated from the playoffs before the end of the season.
Rackley Roofing Co. Inc. will return in 2024 to serve as the main sponsor for 16 races as part of the arrangement with Dillon. A later time will see the announcement of additional sponsors.
