Following a dismal start to the 2022 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season, Jordan Anderson will take a break on his Truck operation for a couple races.
A shocking DNQ for the season opener at Daytona International Speedway sent the perennial superspeedway racer home before the race began. Las Vegas Motor Speedway saw Anderson running inside the top-20 before a last-lap accident totaled his No. 3 Dometic Outdoor Chevrolet Silverado.
While Anderson finished the Fr8 208 at Atlanta Motor Speedway, it was not without incident. Contact between the driver-owner and Tate Fogleman sent the No. 30 Toyota Tundra spinning on the frontstretch with 55 laps to go. Shortly after the ensuing restart, contact between Anderson and Tanner Gray sent the No. 3 out of control. The No. 3 collected Fogleman in the accident. The driver-owner finished 18th, on the lead lap.
“We had only planned on running the first three (races) and evaluate from there,” Anderson told Kickin’ the Tires. “Going to take a break for a couple races. We’ll be back most likely for Darlington, Kansas, and beyond. We only had scheduled so many races. We had never planned to run a full year.”
Anderson’s Truck was already withdrawn from the Truck Series entry list for the XPEL 225 at Circuit of the Americas. With a goal of returning for the LiftKits4Less.com 200 at Darlington Raceway, that implies Jordan Anderson Racing’s truck operation will also skip both the Martinsville Speedway and Bristol Motor Speedway Dirt Track events.
After three races, the No. 3 Chevrolet Silverado sits 33rd in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series owner points standings.
This story will be updated with further comment from Anderson and Jordan Anderson Racing when available.
