Natalie Decker starting 21st in first Charlotte truck race

 

 

Natalie Decker will start 21st Friday night’s Gander Outdoors Truck Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Decker, 21, and most of the other truck series teams see Charlotte as a home track since their race shops are so close to the speedway.

“I’m really excited to race at Charlotte on Friday. There seems to be a lot of excitement around this weekend because it’s a home race for everyone.” says Decker, “We tested there a few months ago, and I’ve been working on the simulator to help prepare.”

The 21-year-old Wisconsin native is coming off a 25th place finish at Kansas and seeking to improve upon her best finish of 13th at Las Vegas.

“My goal for the race is to get a good qualifying lap in, finish all the laps in the race and learn as much as possible. My DGR-Crosley team and I are hoping to get our best finish of the season this weekend in Charlotte.”
