John King Gets Another Truck Series Opportunity

By Christy Valdez

John King will be making his return to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series months after his career took a break.

It was announced on Tuesday in a statement by Wauters Motorsports that King would be making his truck series return at the upcoming September 21 trucks race at Kentucky Speedway. King will be behind the wheel of the No.5 Wauters Motorsports Ford F150.

King won the 2012 truck series season opener at Daytona International Speedway, becoming the first of many first time winners in the season.

King is looking forward to making his return to the track.

“I’m really looking forward to being back at the race track after a bit of a roller-coaster season since winning at Daytona in February,” said King in the statement.

In the 2012 season opener at Daytona, King started the season racing with Red Horse Racing in the No.7 truck. After winning at Daytona, King would go on to race in four more races. Throughout his five starts with Red Horse Racing, King had one top five and two top ten finishes.

Throughout five races King averaged an average start of 23.6 and a 17.7 average finish.

For the 2012 season King had declared to race for the trucks championship, also racing for Rookie of the Year honors.  Although King is still collecting points for Rookie of the Year honors, his truck series debut was at Bristol Motor Speedway in 2010, where he finished 15th.
