Blake Lothian will make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut with Reaume Brothers Racing this weekend at Martinsville Speedway, the organization announced April 4.
Lothian will pilot the No. 43 Colette Phillips Communications, Inc./The Texas Lawbook truck in the event.
“I’m so grateful to Josh Reaume and everyone at Reaume Brothers Racing for this opportunity,” Lothian said in a release. “Looking forward to learning and growing with this team. I remember first watching Todd Bodine race trucks when I was little and ever since then, racing a truck has been a dream of mine. Now I am going to get that opportunity thanks to Reaume Brothers Racing. Coming off of a successful 2021 season, I’m beyond thankful for the opportunity to race at such a historic venue as Martinsville in a NASCAR Camping World Truck.”
