It was rumored before the 2014 season even started in Daytona back in February but on Monday it became official that Tayler Malsam will drive for Turner Scott Motorsports in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. The 25-year-old Malsam will compete in 12 races in the No. 32 truck sponsored by Outerwall Inc.
The first race on the slate for Malsam will be Friday night's SFP 250 at Kansas Speedway. Mike Hillman Jr will serve as Malsam's crew chief on top of the No. 32 truck pit box not only at Kansas but also the other races as well.
Malsam ran a total of 39 Truck Series races between 2008 and 2011. He ran the full slate of races in the 2009 season in the No. 81 truck when Randy Moss made his ownership foray into the Camping World Truck Series. That season Malsam scored 10 top 10 finishes and finished 12th in the driver standings. Malsam also has made 37 starts in the NASCAR Nationwide Series with 26 of those coming in 2012 driving the No. 19 for Tri-Star Motorsports and he finished 15th in the driver standings.
Malsam was a Penske developmental driver in 2008 when he ran the full ARCA Racing Series slate and finished ninth in the driver points that season.
The remaining 11 races that Malsam will drive in 2014 for Turner Scott Motorsports are at Michigan International Speedway, Charlotte Motor Speedway, Chicagoland Speedway, both Texas Motor Speedway events, Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Gateway Motorsports Park , Talladega Superspeedway, Kentucky Speedway, Iowa Speedway, and Homestead-Miami Speedway. In addition to those Truck Series races Malsam will balance a schedule of sprint car races as well.Tags: Camping World Truck Series, kansas speedway, Mike Hillman Jr, Motorsports, NASCAR, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Outerwall Inc., Tayler Malsam, Turner Scott Motorsports
