Cam Waters to make NASCAR Truck Series debut

Monster Castrol Racing’s Cam Waters is the latest Repco Supercars Championship driver to enter the world of American stock car racing after confirming his entry into the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series at Martinsville on April 5.

Driving a Ford F150 for ThorSport Racing, which is the longest serving team in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series winning five championships including last year’s title with Ben Rhodes, 45 wins and 39 pole positions since 1996.

Waters will enjoy the support of Ford Performance in his debut as he enjoyed a return to form somewhat by scoring a pole position at the previous Repco Supercars Championship round at the Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix.

Already in the United States after leaving last Tuesday, Waters will prepare for the event at ThorSport Racing’s workshop in Sandusky, Ohio ahead of racing at America’s most famous short track.

“We’ve been working away at making this happen for some time and to finally be given the change to race, and with a top operation, is great,” said Waters.

“I’m not putting too much pressure on myself knowing I will be getting thrown into the deep end without any testing, but hopefully I can adapt reasonably quickly and be competitive.

“It’s a short oval so I’m sure it will be pretty wild out there.

“I have to thank Ford Performance and the team at ThorSport for helping make this happen and also my long-time team Tickford Racing, who have always supported my plans to explore new driving opportunities in and around my continued dedication to winning the Supercars Championship with them.”

Tickford Racing team co-owner Rod Nash has fully-supported Waters in taking up the opportunity.

“Anything that can provide Cam with further seat time is a bonus,” Nash said.

“His foray into Sprint Car racing and now a NASCAR Truck event provides a fantastic way to stay sharp and further test his skills. 

“The timing in-between the AGP event and Taupo works for our team and we’ll be wishing him well and watching with huge interest.”
