Missouri-native Tony Jackson Jr. is set to make his sixth NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start this Saturday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, driving the No. 07 SS Green Light Racing Chevy.
This will be Jackson’s first time working with crew chief veteran Butch Miller.
“I’m anxious to get to Las Vegas,” he said in the team preview. “The team is bringing the same truck we ran at Chicago. I know Butch likes the truck a lot. We got past the new truck blues during practice at Chicago and we got it pretty decent as the race went on. I think we should be better this weekend.
“I’m excited to work with Butch this weekend, and I think he’s excited to work with me. He has a lot of experience working with young drivers and I think we’ll get a long real good.
I enjoyed working with Jason Miller the first five races but I understand it’s best for the team to keep Jason and David together so I’m looking forward to seeing how well Butch and I can communicate and find some speed. I think we’ll be decent.”
Building enclosure specialist ASI Limited will be on the quarter panels of the truck, along with Las Vegas Landmark Stratosphere Las Vegas Casino, Hotel & Tower.
In his previous five starts, Jackson has four top-20 finishes, including a top-15 at Kansas.
Jackson is schedule to run one more race this year and is hoping to gain more sponsors to be able to make a run at Rookie of the Year Award in 2011.
