Clint Bowyer is scheduled to make his first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start in nearly two years, running Friday night's event as a home-state favorite at Kansas Speedway.

 

Bowyer -- an Emporia, Kansas native -- is listed as the driver of record for the GMS Racing No. 24 Chevrolet for Friday's Toyota Tundra 250 (8:30 p.m. ET, FS1, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).

 

Bowyer is a three-time winner in the series, with his most recent victory coming on June 4, 2011 in his only Truck Series start at the 1.5-mile Kansas track. His most recent Truck Series appearance netted a fourth-place finish at Pocono Raceway in August 2014.

 

Bowyer will run double-duty in NASCAR national-series competition for the first time this season. He's also set to drive the HScott Motorsports No. 15 Chevrolet in Saturday night's GoBowling 400 (7:30 p.m. ET, FS1, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) for the Sprint Cup Series.

 

Friday's 250.5-mile Camping World Truck Series event kicks off three consecutive weekends of racing for the Truck Series, with Dover and Charlotte to follow Kansas on the 23-race schedule.
