Johnny Sauter is set to debut ThorSport's No. 98 Carolina Nut Co. / Curb Records Toyota Tundra in the 14th annual Daytona season-opener for the NCWTS.
In 98 of his previous 108 career starts Sauter's driven the No. 13 now piloted by Todd Bodine, but the new scheme is important to Sauter and listed team owner Mike Curb. "To have The Carolina Nut Co. on our Toyota trucks is obviously a win-win -- it's great exposure for the sponsor and awesome snacks for everybody from our team to all the fans out there," Sauter said. "Changing our number is good for Mike, because his Nationwide car, his Sprint Cup car and a lot of his short-track stuff is all No. 98. So it's really cool for Mike to have, I guess you'd call it that brand awareness that when you see a No. 98 race truck or car it's probably affiliated with Mike Curb.-ThorSport Racing
