“I can’t thank Grime Boss enough for supporting the development of my career,” said Truex. “We’re working hard to gain as much experience by running as many tracks as possible this year with the hopes of running a full Nationwide Series schedule in 2013. I appreciate RAB Racing for giving me the opportunity to get behind the wheel of their No. 09 Toyota. They’ve had strong cars every week, and I can’t wait to get to Texas.”
“Nice-Pak is solidly behind Ryan Truex and his Nationwide Series efforts,” said Tom Hernquist, President of Nice-Pak Products, Inc. “Our experience working with Ryan has been phenomenal. He’s been a great ambassador for our Grime Boss brand.”
