Johnny Benson to Race Kansas and Dover for Billy Ballew Motorsports
MOORESVILLE, N.C. (April 19, 2010) - Johnny Benson is returning behind the wheel of the No. 15 Toyota Tundra for two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) events, Billy Ballew Motorsports (BBM) announced today. The Grand Rapids, Wis., native will compete in the O'Reilly Auto Parts 250 at Kansas Speedway on May 2 and the Dover 200 at Dover International Speedway on May 14. Benson has one prior start with BBM, which netted a fifth-place finish at Martinsville Speedway last March.
Benson has three top-five finishes in five previous NCWTS starts at Kansas. At Dover International Speedway, Benson has accrued one top-five in five NCWTS starts. He has one win at Dover in NASCAR Nationwide Series competition, which came in September 1994. Benson's success with BBM, combined with his results at the scheduled venues, has him excited about the events ahead.
"It's great to go racing with Billy Ballew Motorsports again," said Benson. "I had a lot of fun last race. We worked really well together. It didn't take long for us to get up to speed. They have a great reputation at intermediate tracks, so I think we're going to hit the ground running at Kansas and Dover."
Team owner Billy Ballew is anticipating another strong showing from the 2008 NCWTS champ at the upcoming races.
"Johnny is a tremendous driver and we're thrilled to be working with him again," said Ballew. "He did a great job at Martinsville. He's shown that he can get the job done at Kansas and Dover. Everything is in place for us to have two great races."
