Truex to drive RAB Racing's No. 09 at Texas

April 10, 2012, Team Release,

CONCORD, N.C. -- RAB Racing with Brack Maggard and two-time NASCAR K&N Pro Series East champion Ryan Truex will team up for this weekend's Nationwide Series race at Texas Motor Speedway.

Grime Boss, a division of Nice-Pak Products, Inc., will sponsor Truex as he pilots the No. 09 in his first start at the 1.5-mile oval. The 20-year-old driver has compiled one top-five and six top-10 finishes in 26 Nationwide Series starts.

"I can't thank Grime Boss enough for supporting the development of my career," Truex said. "We're working hard to gain as much experience by running as many tracks as possible this year with the hopes of running a full Nationwide Series schedule in 2013. I appreciate RAB Racing for giving me the opportunity to get behind the wheel of their No. 09 Toyota. They've had strong cars every week, and I can't wait to get to Texas."

Kenny Wallace, who drove the No. 09 Toyota Camry in the first five races of the 2012 season, will return to the team at Talladega Superspeedway next month.
