TALLADEGA, Ala. – Robby Lyons has joined Reaume Bros. Racing and will drive the No. 33 Sunwest Construction Chevrolet in Saturday’s Fr8Auctions 250 at Talladega Superspeedway, as part of a collaborative effort with Bruce Cook and Chad Finley Racing.

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series rookie started the year behind the wheel of the No. 15 Chevrolet Silverado for Premium Motorsports, competing in seven Truck Series races this season and finishing all but one.

In his Daytona debut, Lyons qualified 25th but progressively drafted forward and avoided late chaos, earning a season-high 13th place finish and his second-best result in nine overall starts.

“I couldn’t be more excited to get back in a truck, especially at Talladega,” said Lyons. “This race track means a lot to both me and my family. Back in 2005, we attended the spring Xfinity and Cup races at Talladega and the next day, my life would change forever.

“I was in a scary motorcross accident that left the doctors wondering whether I’d even walk again. Through sheer determination, a little hard headedness and countless prayers from friends, family and the racing community, I was able to make a full recovery and prove the doctors wrong. I am so happy to get to race at Talladega, especially knowing the deep personal impact this place has had on me.”

Knowing what he learned in his superspeedway debut at the World Center of Racing in February, the Floridian hopes to showcase his restrictor-plate skills once again and contend for his first top-10 finish.

“I’m confident I’ll be taking the No. 33 Sunwest Construction Chevrolet Silverado to the front, thanks to the hard work and preparation by Bruce Cook and my whole team. I also want to thank Josh Reaume and everyone at Reaume Brothers Racing for giving us a chance to go racing and chase a trophy.

“The truck is fast, and I cannot wait to get down to Talladega and give it all we have.”

Lyons is expected to compete in at least one more Truck Series race this season following Talladega, with an official announcement expected in the coming weeks.

Josh Reaume, co-owner of Reaume Bros. Racing and a Truck Series competitor, says his organization is thrilled to have Lyons drive their No. 33 Chevrolet this weekend and hopes his family-owned team can earn some time in the spotlight.

“We’re thrilled to be working with Robby this weekend. He has worked very hard to put himself in a position to succeed at Talladega,” said Reaume. “We are looking forward to getting back on track after a three-week break and can’t wait to watch Robby push his way to the front.”

In nine career Truck Series races, Lyons has earned a best-finish of 12th at Arizona’s ISM Raceway in November of 2017, also qualifying a career-best 20th in the same event.
