KBM announced Thursday that Byron will drive the team’s No. 51 Chevrolet on April 8 at Bristol Motor Speedway, May 12 at Darlington Raceway and May 20 at North Wilkesboro Speedway. Byron has not competed in the Truck Series at any of these tracks.

“I’m so excited to be back racing with KBM,” Byron said in a statement released by the team. “I’m looking forward to getting back in their trucks and hopefully having some fun for those three races. These are three great race tracks that we’ve been to, and I’m interested in racing them because I’ve never raced a truck before.”
