With the 2021 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series set to debut in less than a month on February 12th, ThorSport Racing has announced that it is parting ways with Ford Performance following a three-year partnership.
“After a successful three-year relationship with Ford, ThorSport Racing announces today that they have agreed to part ways ahead of the 2021 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season,” the organization said in a statement.
“Over the past three seasons, the team captured its third Camping World Truck Series drivers’ championship, a regular-season title, and Ford’s 100th series win. In addition to 10 wins, 83 top-five, and 163 top-10 finishes, 12 pole awards, and 1,707 laps led. A complete driver and partnership lineup for ThorSport Racing will be released at a later date.”

Over its three years with Ford, ThorSport Racing, which is based in Sandusky, Ohio, has racked up 10 wins, 83 top-five, and 163 top-10 finishes. Its most notable accomplishments including a regular-season championship with Grant Enfinger and one driver’s championship with Matt Crafton back in 2019.
Prior to joining Ford, ThorSport Racing competed under the Toyota brand. During that time, Crafton won consecutive championships with the automaker in 2013 and 2014, which were Toyota’s first two drivers’ titles.
ThorSport Racing will release a new, complete driver and manufacturer lineup at some point in the near future. Last year, that roster included Matt Crafton, Grant Enfinger, Johnny Sauter, and Ben Rhodes.
Despite the loss, a couple of teams and drivers are still set to take the wheel of a Ford F-150 racer this coming NASCAR Truck Series season, including Todd Gilliland of Front Row Motorsports, Hailie Deegan with David Gilliland Racing, and Tanner Gray with the DGR-Crosley team.
