DGR-Crosley Racing has added six races to rookie Natalie Decker’s Gander Outdoors Truck Series schedule, the team announced on Tuesday.

N29 Technologies will sponsor the additional races, with Decker in the No. 54 Toyota Tundra for a total of 17 races in 2019. She had previously been scheduled to run 11 contests this year.

With the added events, the 21-year-old will enter races at Dover, Kansas, Charlotte, Texas, Iowa, Gateway, Chicagoland, Kentucky, Pocono, Bristol, Las Vegas, Martinsville, ISM and Homestead-Miami.

Decker has made three starts in 2019, recording a best finish of 13th at Las Vegas.

“I’m so excited to add more races with DGR-Crosley,” Decker said in the release. “I’m very thankful for the opportunity to be with this team. David [Gilliland] does such a great job with putting the right people in the right positions, and I’m learning so much and enjoy working with Frank [Kerr, crew chief] and all my guys.”

Decker said she didn’t think she’d be in this many races for the team, but she is excited about the opportunity.

“I love competing in the Truck Series – it’s challenging but so fun,” she said. “I’m looking forward to continuing to learn as much as possible and putting together solid finishes. This year is all about learning and getting experience.”

Team co-owner David Gilliland said the added races will give Decker valuable experience.

“I think it’s great that Natalie and N29 Technologies have decided to pick up more races this season,” he said.
