Ryan Truex to make debut for MWR
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Michael Waltrip Racing plans to enter Ryan Truex in six Nationwide Series races this season.
Truex is the younger brother of MWR driver Martin Truex Jr. He turns 18 on Thursday, and that's the legal age to compete on NASCAR's national level.
Ryan Truex is scheduled to make his Nationwide debut on July 17 at Gateway International Raceway. His other races are tentatively scheduled to be at Michigan, Richmond, Kansas, Charlotte and Homestead.
Truex is also going to defend his title in NASCAR's East Series this season with help from MWR.
