The Tennessee-based retail company will be the primary backer of the No. 51 Toyota for driver and team owner Kyle Busch in three races -- June 26 at Kentucky, Aug. 20 at Bristol and Sept. 12 at Chicagoland -- and 17-year-old Erik Jones in one race -- Nov. 7 at Phoenix.

Busch, a 36-time winner in the Truck Series, fields two trucks -- the No. 54 Toyota driven full-time by Darrell Wallace Jr., and the No. 51 Tundra for Jones and himself. He notched the series' team owner championship in 2013 and prevailed in the season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250 last month at Daytona International Speedway.

Jones scored a surprise victory in just his fifth career Truck Series start last fall at Phoenix. He is also the winner of the last two star-studded Snowball Derby exhibition races for Late Model cars.

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series' next race is the Kroger 250, scheduled for March 29 at Martinsville Speedway.
