After missing two races due to a medical condition, Natalie Decker has been cleared to return to competition in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series, she tweeted Oct. 10.

Decker will drive for Niece Motorsports in two more races this season, at Texas Motor Speedway and Martinsville Speedway, in the No. 44.

She had been scheduled to compete in the Sept. 25 race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway but was sidelined before the event began and was credited with a last-place finish. She was then pulled from the series’ next event at Talladega Superspeedway on Oct. 3, with Kaz Grala replacing her and finishing ninth in the No. 44.

Decker will not run at Kansas Speedway or the season-ending event at Phoenix Raceway, with Colin Garrett driving the No. 44 at the former.

In 11 starts in 2020, Decker has one top five and one top 10, coming at the season-opening race at Daytona International Speedway, finishing fifth. Her average finish is 23.7.

The 23-year-old currently has 30 total starts in the series.
