CR7 Motorsports heads to Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway for Friday night’s Bucked Up 200 with driver Grant Enfinger prepared to roll the dice and earn another strong finish in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS).
In an effort to allow Enfinger to earn maximum points in the Truck Series, CR7 Motorsports primary driver Codie Rohrbaugh offer to vacate his seat of the No. 9 Chevrolet Silverado for the third race of the season.
He will return in the series’ next event at Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway on Mar. 20, 2021.
“We’re happy to have Grant (Enfinger) aboard the No. 9 Camping World | Grant County Mulch Chevrolet Silverado this weekend at Las Vegas,” offered Rohrbaugh. “I know his experience in the Truck Series has the potential to further strengthen our organization as we work to be a mainstay team in 2021.”
Enfinger, 36, will make his 10th NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at Las Vegas and eyes his second victory at the 1.5-mile track after earning the victory in September 2018.
In addition to his World of Westgate 200 triumph, he holds two top-five and five top-10 finishes in Sin City. Since 2012, he carries an average finish of 12.8.
“Thanks Marcus Lemonis and Camping World for making things happen,” said Enfinger.
“Also, thanks to Codie and all of the Rohrbaugh family for letting me hop in the truck at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Also, big thanks to ThorSport Racing and Duke and Rhonda Thorson for letting me have some fun this weekend.”
CR7 Motorsports is off to a solid 2021 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start with finishes of eighth and 16th in the first two races at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway and the Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway Road Course respectively.

“It would be great to earn another top-10 finish on Friday night and keep the momentum on our side ahead of Atlanta in a few weeks.”
