Chastain explained his sentiments when responding to this update. “I’m thankful to Al Niece and everyone at Niece Motorsports for allowing me to get behind the wheel of these Chevrolets. We’re going to do our best to go out and win races and compete for an owner’s championship. It would mean a lot to me to be able to bring that home to Al Niece.”

Niece Motorsports General Manager Cody Efaw said: “Ross means a lot to our organization and we’re appreciative that he continues to come back and race with us.”

Chastain is going to follow a five-part schedule in the 2024 Truck Series. He will compete at the Circuit of The Americas in March. He will then return to Darlington and North Wilkesboro in May. After that he’ll race at Pocono in July and eventually at Indianapolis Raceway Park in August.

Chastain’s career was revived by Niece

Ross Chastain used to race for Chip Ganassi Racing before signing up with Trackhouse Racing. But when due to some issues in CGR, Chastain faced a career glitch courtesy of a sponsorship debacle in 2019. It was then that he got back into the winning game with Niece Motorsports in the Truck Series. He scored three victories and advanced to the Championship 4.

“Al [Niece] is my people,” Chastain said. “We work like family and a big reason of why my career, when it went into his largest valley, came right back up the following season going and winning races and ultimately, was one of the fundamental dominoes that fell to get me back to the Cup Series.”
