Johnny Sauter lands Truck series ride with ThorSport Racing

NASCAR


DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Johnny Sauter has salvaged his 2019 season roughly a month after it fell apart with no notice.

Sauter lost his ride with GMS Racing in January when the team decided to instead use reigning Truck series champion Brett Moffitt.

The decision blindsided Sauter, who won six races for GMS last season and finished fourth in the championship finale. Sauter won the Truck series championship in 2016, has not finished lower than fourth the past six seasons and won 13 times for GMS.

Sauter finally put together a new job right before he had to report to Daytona International Speedway. He will drive again this season for ThorSport Racing, for whom he raced from 2009 until he joined GMS in 2016.

“I’m returning home,” Sauter said. “I couldn’t be more proud of going back there and running for a championship.”

ThorSport is expanding to four full-time Truck entries with Sauter. He’ll be teammates with Matt Crafton, Ben Rhodes, Myatt Snider and Grant Enfinger. Snider will drive in select races for the team.

Sauter arrived in Daytona three days before the Truck series’ season-opening race Friday night.
