Anderson to run full Truck season as owner/driver

Jordan Anderson announced Wednesday he will compete full-time in the Camping World Truck Series for himself.

Anderson will drive the No. 3 for Jordan Anderson Racing. He will receive support from Niece Motorsports and will run a spec engine.

On SiriusXM NASCAR Radio's "Tradin' Paint," Anderson said he originally thought about driving the No. 7 to honor the late Alan Kulwicki.

While the No. 3 is synonymous with seven-time Cup champion Dale Earnhardt, Anderson was inspired to race the number based on Junior Johnson's history with it.

Anderson has four trucks and will drive a Toyota at restrictor-plate races and a Chevrolet at intermediate and short tracks. He also acquired a Ford truck from the now defunct Brad Keselowski Racing.

Last year, Anderson competed the entire season with one truck. He crowdfunded support from fans in order to compete after his Truck was wrecked in the second race of the year at Atlanta.

Anderson's sponsors will include Lucas Oil, Bommarito Automotive Group, LTi Printing, Jacob Companies and Knight Fire.
