2015 NASCAR Southern Whelen Modified Champion Andy Seuss will attempt his Camping World Truck Series debut this weekend at Talladega Superspeedway, driving the No. 28 Chevrolet for FDNY Racing.
Seuss, a Hampstead, New Hampshire, native, will attempt the Fred’s 250 with sponsorship from Cancer Wellness TV. While this will be Seuss’s first national series start if he makes the field, he has toured with FDNY Racing for the past three years, serving on the pit crew for the team.
He also attempted a race with the team in 2013, failing to qualify the No. 28 at Rockingham.
Seuss, who won races at Caraway, Bristol and South Boston in 2015, won the SWMT championship by a slim two-point margin over George Brunnhoelzl III. The title was his second in the series; he also won the championship in 2014, part of a streak of eight full-time seasons in which he didn’t finish worse than fourth in points.
Seuss has one previous start in a stock car at Talladega, finishing 21st earlier this year in the ARCA Racing Series.
If the team avoids trouble, Seuss has a handshake deal with team owner Jim Rosenblum to run the February race at Daytona.
With 34 trucks currently entered at Talladega, Seuss will need to qualify the No. 28 by speed as the team is not locked in via owner points. The team has competed in two events in 2015, both with Ryan Ellis. He finished 16th in the season-opening race at Daytona and 20th at Pocono.
