Natalie Decker will rejoin the No. 54 team this weekend as the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series travels to Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway. Decker will have new colors on the sides of her Tundra as she welcomes Ruedebusch Development and Construction to the team.
The World of Westgate 200 will be Decker’s second start at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Earlier this season, she earned a career-best 13th-place finish in her debut on the 1.5-mile track. Decker also scored her best qualifying effort in Vegas when she rolled off from the 12th position. This season Decker and her No. 54 team have six 1.5-mile speedway starts together where they average a 16th-place starting position, and 21st place finish. Decker heads into the weekend with confidence, looking to earn her first Truck Series top-10 finish.
Decker will have her regular team working on her No. 54 Tundra this weekend with veteran crew chief Frank Kerr calling the shots from the pit box. She will have a new voice guiding her from the spotter stand with Cup spotter, Coleman Pressley.
The 134 lap World of Westgate 200 will be broadcast live on FS1 beginning at 9:00 p.m., ET on Friday, Sept. 13.
Decker on Las Vegas: “I’m looking forward to going to Vegas this week. We have some fun things leading up to the race going on with the Thunderbirds that I’m really excited about and then I’m confident going into this race weekend because we had a really good run there in the spring race. We qualified well and put together a solid race from start to finish. I think we can do the same thing this weekend.”
