Sports car racing champion Cameron Lawrence is set to make his NASCAR debut in next month’s Truck Series race at Circuit of the Americas.
Reaume Brothers Racing, which field the #33 car and the #34 car on a full-time basis in the NASCAR Truck Series, confirmed earlier this week that they are set to welcome a new driver for next month’s inaugural race at Circuit of the Americas.
He may not have any NASCAR experience, but sports car racing champion Cameron Lawrence is well-equipped to handle the #33 Chevrolet Silverado around the 20-turn, 3.427-mile (5.515-kilometer) road course in Austin, Texas.
And he is set to get the opportunity to do that, with primary sponsorship backing from veteran-owned companies Texas Mobile Radiology, Impact Health Labs and Front Line Mobile Health.
Lawrence, the 28-year-old who hails from Orlando, Florida but currently resides in Austin, has an illustrious sports car racing background.
Lawrence is a two-time SCCA Trans-Am Series TA2 champion (2013 and 2014), and he was crowned WeatherTech SportsCar Championship North American Endurance Cup GTD champion in 2015.
He was also a part of the GTD class-winning Rolex 24 at Daytona effort back in 2015, and he is more than excited to get the opportunity to drive in the Truck Series race at his home road course next month.
Here is what had to say about the opportunity in a release.
“The magnitude of this opportunity is incredible, and I feel fortunate to be making my debut in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at my home track, Circuit of the Americas, with the support of three Texas-based and veteran-owned companies.
“I spend a lot of time at Circuit of the Americas, whether it’s racing or coaching, and I’m confident in my local knowledge. I’m thankful for the support of Texas Mobile Radiology, Impact Health Labs and Front Line Mobile Health. With their support, we plan to utilize the Camping World Truck Series as a platform to honor frontline workers and first responders. I’m hopeful this opportunity will foster future growth with Reaume Brothers Racing in the Camping World Truck Series.”
Here is what Jason Dent, co-owner and director for Texas Mobile Radiology and Impact Health Labs, had to add.
“We are pleased to strengthen our sponsorship presence in NASCAR as the primary sponsor for Cameron Lawrence in his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut. We are thrilled to be associated with Cameron– He has a successful, proven history of winning. Texas Mobile Radiology and Impact Health Labs is founded by veterans and we are continuing service to our country through service within our communities.”
Finally, here is what Russell Burnham, APA-C, team principal and founder of Front Line Mobile Health had to say.
“We are proud to sponsor Cameron Lawrence in the Reaume Brothers Racing Chevrolet Silverado. NASCAR Camping World Truck Series’ event at Circuit of the Americas is an opportunity for Front Line Mobile Health to recognize our frontline workers and first responders. We take a tremendous amount of pride in having the opportunity to represent our community of frontline workers and first responders during this unique event.”
The Truck Series race at Circuit of the Americas, which has not yet landed a title sponsor, is set to be broadcast live on Fox Sports 1 beginning at 1:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, May 22.
