Tommy Baldwin Racing Welcomes Ryan Truex for The DAYTONA 500

January 16, 2019 (Mooresville, NC) – Ryan Truex will pilot the No. 71 Tommy Baldwin Racing Chevrolet for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season opener, DAYTONA 500, at Daytona International Speedway.

Taking after family history, Ryan Truex has ascended to the top of the motorsports ladder in just a few short years competing throughout the top tiers of the sport. Driving for several well-acclaimed teams such as Joe Gibbs Racing, Pastrana Waltrip Racing, BK Racing, Biagi Denbeste Racing and Hattori Racing Enterprises, Truex has made starts in all three top NASCAR series. This will mark Truex’s second attempt at qualifying for The DAYTONA 500.

“I am very thankful to TBR and Tommy Baldwin for this opportunity and can’t wait to get to Daytona and back in a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series car,” commented Ryan Truex. “The pressure is on to make it into the race, but Tommy is a true racer, and I know he will put everything into the car to give us a great shot.”

“I’m excited to have Ryan back in a Tommy Baldwin Racing car,” team owner Tommy Baldwin said. “We had success at Daytona in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, in the past. I’ve known the Truex family a very long time, and it’s special that we’ll be able to compete in The DAYTONA 500 together, and hopefully more races as the year goes on. We are still in search of a primary sponsor that we’re hoping to put together in time to give TBR a great run this year!”
