NTS Motorsports has announced its full season NASCAR program, primarily in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series but also with entries in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, Spears SRL Southwest Tour and ARCA.

NTS will have Daniel Hemric in its No. 14 Chevrolet Silverado for the full season, with Ryan McKinney as crew chief. Hemric, who will run for NCWTS rookie of the year, will also run three ARCA races.

James Buescher has also been confirmed to run selected races in the No. 31 Silverado. The 2012 series champion will have NTS competition director Chris Rice on board as crew chief.

A third truck, the No. 20 Chevrolet, will have 16-year-old Gray Gaulding on for eight races and Scott Lagasse Jr. for two (Daytona and Homestead) to bookend the season. Doug Howe will serve as crew chief.

Gaulding and Howe will partner for a full season in K&N; meanwhile in the West Coast-based SRL series, Blaine Rocha (No. 21) and 17-year-old Parker Stevens (No. 28) are the team’s two drivers.

NTS Motorsports has also added veteran team manager and West Coast Stock Car Hall of Fame inductee Rick Carelli to serve as the team’s general manager.
