Former NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion and current Sprint Cup Series driver Travis Kvapil,will drive the No. 05 Zaxby’s Toyota Tundra in Michigan on Saturday.

“It is really hard sitting out and watching someone else drive your truck,” Townley said. “I am hoping to be back behind the wheel of the No. 05 Zaxby’s truck Wednesday at Bristol.”

Kvapil has two wins, three top-five and four top-10 finishes in four Camping World Truck Series starts on the two-mile Michigan race track.
