Natalie Decker will run a part-time schedule in Niece Motorsports’ No. 44 truck, the team announced Thursday morning (Jan. 16).
Decker’s first event with the team will come at the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series season opener at Daytona International Speedway.
The Wisconsin native made 19 starts in 2019 for DGR-Crosley and finished 22nd on average.
“Change is inevitable, change is expected and exciting, and change is also frightening,” said Decker in a press release. “But this year is a year I’m ready for. I have never felt so prepared with my health, in the gym and mentally. There are so many things to be excited about working with Niece Motorsports, starting with my teammates Ross [Chastain] and Ty [Majeski]. I’m ready to learn from them and be 100% open-minded going into the season.”
Decker adds to Niece Motorsports’ driver lineup of Majeski (full-time), Chastain and Carson Hocevar (both part-time).
“We are excited to have Natalie join the team,” said team owner Al Niece. “Natalie has shown a lot of talent, and we are excited to see her continue to develop that at Niece Motorsports. We are certain we will put her in competitive equipment that will really give her a chance to shine.”
After Daytona, the remaining events are yet to be announced.
