Kimmel, a 10-time champion in the ARCA Racing Series, will be part of a three-truck team for ThorSport at Homestead. Points leader Matt Crafton will drive the No. 88 and Johnny Sauter, who is fourth in points, will drive the No. 98 for the Sandusky, Ohio-based team.

"I know it's another race that's put on our guys and they've worked so hard and they deserve a break," Kimmel said in a release. "But I'm just really excited to get to go and have an opportunity to get in the race and go out there and race the truck guys."

Kimmel, 51, has started 13 Truck Series events in his career. He finished 21st at Iowa Speedway in July’s American Ethanol 200 Presented by Enogen.

Of his previous 13 Truck Series starts, three have come at Homestead. He has one top-10 finish at the track in the series -- a ninth-place effort in 1996, when the Homestead track opened the season.
