John King to drive in Phoenix

staff report • Nov 7, 2012 at 11:09 AM

PHOENIX, Ariz. — Kingsport’s John King returns to Wauters Motorsports to pilot the No. 5 Fairway Ford in Friday’s Lucas Oil 150 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Phoenix International Raceway.

King will be making his first start at PIR and second for Wauters Motorsports.

“First off, I’m really excited to be back with (crew chief) Richie (Wauters) and his team,” King said. “They’ve got some awesome Ford F-150 race trucks and have the knowledge that’s needed to make them go fast at the track. I feel like Phoenix will relate to what I have raced in the past, dirt late models and late model stocks, being as its fairly flat and races more like a short track. I know also that whatever I lack in knowledge of the track as a driver, the team will be able to offset with their knowledge.”
