CHARLOTTE, N.C. – For Jordan Anderson, as he prepares to enter his fourth full-time year in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, a new journey is well underway.
The 26-year-old Anderson from Columbia, S.C. announced Wednesday at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte that he has formed his own team under the Jordan Anderson Racing banner, with intentions of competing full time in the Truck Series.
Along with the announcement, the team unveiled the white and blue No. 3 truck, and paint scheme that they will make their debut with on Friday, Feb. 16 in the NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona International Speedway.
Joining Anderson on stage at the Hall of Fame announcement were longtime partners John Bommarito of the Bommarito Automotive Group, Mike Frost from LTi Printing, Don Perry from Jacob Companies, and Randy Knighton of Knight Fire, all who will return for the 2018 season.
“The opportunity to do what we’re doing this year is only through the selfless efforts of so many amazing people behind the scenes and a culmination of hard work, sacrifice, and answered prayers over the years,” said Anderson. “To take the next step in my racing career this way is very humbling, and extremely meaningful. Our entire team is made up of guys that love racing, and we’re all eager to see what adventures the years ahead hold for us.”
Thanks to a boost of support from Niece Motorsports, Anderson will operate out of Statesville, N.C. and have acquired four trucks to start the season off with.
A partner since 2016, John Bommarito was enthusiastic about the announcement and the potential that he saw in the team.
“Seeing Jordan grow from when we first partnered up in 2016 at the Gateway Motorsports Park, to where he is now as we toured his shop yesterday and talked with the crew, it’s been a fantastic journey,” said Bommarito. “It’s an honor to have him as part of the Bommarito family. He’s a driver that represents our brand with integrity, and we appreciate that.”
