In addition, the Iowa native has 46 top-10 finishes and has led a total of 1,190 laps in his three seasons of full-time Truck Series competition.
“Brett is a proven winner,” said Niece Motorsports general manager Cody Efaw. “We are thrilled to have him join Niece Motorsports. The experience he will bring to our team is invaluable. We are working hard this offseason – our goal in 2021 is to run up front and contend for wins. Brett, Carson [Hocevar] and Ryan [Truex] are great talents and we look forward to giving them competitive equipment.”

“I’m excited about our driver lineup next year,” said Niece Motorsports owner Al Niece. “Brett is a tremendous talent and will be a huge asset to our team. We know that our drivers have the talent it takes to contend for wins in the Truck Series and l know our crew is working as hard as possible this offseason to build them equipment capable of doing so.”
