Kernersville, N.C. (June 21, 2013) – NTS Motorsports announced today the addition of road course specialist and veteran Max Papis to their driver line up when the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series heads north to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park on September 1, 2013. Papis will carry the colors of Sport Clips Haircuts on his No. 14 Chevrolet for the Chevrolet Silverado 250, as the series makes its first road-course appearance.

“Having a road course ace like Max Papis drive for NTS Motorsports at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park is going to be exciting,” said NTS Motorsports owner Bob Newberry. “Max is a great addition to the team, as a driver and road course mentor for Brennan Newberry and Ron Hornaday, Jr.  The No. 14 truck is returning to competition with primary sponsor Sport Clips – a well-known and successful brand that aligns well with our current NTS Motorsports’ partners.  I look forward to watching Max and the No. 14 Sport Clips Silverado cut through the competition for NTS Motorsports’ first road-course win.”

The Italian born racer brings with him years of road-course racing experience with various starts across the top-ranks of NASCAR, including the NASCAR Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series, Formula 1, CART and Indy Car. This will mark Papis’ first-career start with the Kernersville, N.C.-based team and the second time this season that NTS Motorsports will unload three trucks for competition.

“I am extremely excited to be part of NTS Motorsports, especially for the heritage of the place in Kernersville that gave me one of my best finishes ever with KHI (Kevin Harvick Inc.),” commented Papis. “I love to be in that building and now with the input of Mr. Newberry, it looks like we are going to aim for many other successes. I want to thank Sport Clips and everyone at NTS for the opportunity of putting together such a competitive package and especially Chevrolet, for the support they are giving us for the program. I know MoSport is a very unique, historic race track and I would have never missed the first Truck race on a road course, it’s just too tempting. I feel we have a really good chance of showing up and running in the top five and obviously the win is what everyone wants. I can promise we will give everything we can to get our Sport Clips Chevrolet in the winner’s circle. It will be a dream come true for myself and for the people at Sport Clips, and everyone at Chevrolet and the NTS family.

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series rolls into the historic Canadian Tire Motorsports Park on September 1, 2013 for the Chevrolet Silverado 250 and is set to make NASCAR history as it will be the first time this NASCAR Series has raced in another country. Each driver will be looking to add their names to the history books as the first NCWTS driver to win the first NCWTS race north of the US border. The race will take place at 2:00 p.m. EST and will be televised on SPEED and broadcast on the Motor Racing Network (MRN).
