Waltrip In Talks With Billy Ballew About Truck Ride

According to a report from SceneDaily, Michael Waltrip is in talks with Billy Ballew Motorsports about driving one of the team’s trucks full-time in the Camping World Truck Series next season.

Waltrip, who is running a limited Sprint Cup schedule next season with his team, Michael Waltrip Racing, may not want to run a full truck schedule next season. Waltrip stepped back after signing Martin Truex Jr to replace him in a Napa Toyota next season.

Waltrip was quoted as saying:

[Billy Ballew is] working on sponsorship, and if it comes through, there’s a pretty good chance I’ll run a couple races for him.

 Kyle Busch drove a BBM truck last season part-time, and he won seven races in those trucks. Last month, Busch announced plans to start his own truck team.

Meanwhile, Ballew is looking to find drivers to fill his two open seats. He is also looking for sponsorship for Waltrip and a second driver, Aric Almirola. He’s also said that he is considering Steve Wallace for a part-time truck team.

Ballew expects an announcement on Waltrip next week.
