"I've never actually been with a team for more than one year so I'm really looking forward to getting back with the same team," Hayley said on the air.
The Canadian native raced with the ThorSport during the 2015 NCWTS season and with four top fives and 13 top 10s, Hayley ended his freshman season, sixth in the standings. Eddie Troconis will serve as the team's crew chief after spending three seasons as a race engineer at Kyle Busch Motorsports.
"I think we have all the tools to go out there and win a championship next year," Hayley said, now with definite plans in place.
The 19-year-old will be part of the four-truck powerhouse team for the 2016 season alongside teammates Matt Crafton in the No. 88, Rico Abreu in the No. 98 and Ben Rhodes in the No. 41. Crafton won back-to-back championships with the organization in 2013 and 2014. Abreu joins the team for his first full-time season in a national series after transitioning from the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East. Rhodes made 10 starts in the NASCAR XFINITY Series for JR Motorsports in 2015.
Hayley candidly stated that the racing community can expect "domination from ThorSport this year" and a 1-2-3-4 finish works for him "but as long as I end up first then (my teammates) can finish second, third and fourth."
