Jake Griffin will return to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in two races for Reaume Brothers Racing in 2021, the team announced Jan. 8.

Griffin will drive the series’ pair of dirt races at Bristol Motor Speedway and Knoxville Raceway.

The number Griffin will pilot was not announced; in 2020, RBR fielded the Nos. 00 and 33 full time, as well as a part-time No. 34.

“I am really looking forward to getting back behind the wheel in 2021,” Griffin said in a team release. “To have it be for RBR in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at two of the most historic racetracks in the world, well, you can’t ask for too much more of an opportunity then [sic] that.”

Griffin has made six Truck starts since 2015, three of them coming at Eldora Speedway. His best finish came at Eldora in 2016 with a fourth-place run for Red Horse Racing. His last start came at Eldora in 2019.

Thus far, RBR has made two driver announcements for 2021, with Griffin joined by Keith McGee, who the team said last year would make his debut with the organization in 2021 after being unable to run at Talladega Superspeedway last fall.

In 2020, various drivers, including team owner Josh Reaume, drove for the organization, with no full-time driver after Angela Ruch, who started the season in the No. 00, stepped out of the truck midseason.
