Camping World Challenge takes on Las Vegas
At least ten pickup trucks will adorne a Camping World themed paint scheme during Friday’s Bucked Up 200 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway (Mar. 4 at 9pm EST on FS1). The race will be the third outing of the 22-race NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this season, and first at a 1.5-mile circuit. As most things do now, it all started with a post to Twitter.
Marcus Lemonis, CEO of Camping World Holdings, Inc., tweeted a picture of Grant Enfinger’s No. 9 Chevy Silvero for CR7 Motorsports in the upcoming Las Vegas Truck race in a Camping World livery Monday night.
Later that night, he asked his followers which teams were unsponsored for the trip out to Vegas.
Jordan Anderson, driver and owner of the No. 3 Silverado, responded saying he was in need of a fully funded truck. Lemonis replied saying Anderson would receive $15,000 for a Camping World paint scheme with bonus payouts for a Top-10 result, a Top-5 finish and a victory.
Following that, he offered the opportunity once more. This time, including a picture of Kevin Harvick’s winning Camping World paint scheme from a 2008 Phoenix Raceway visit, encouraging more underfunded teams to join the program.
Many of these teams hustled to wrap the pickups in time before departing on the cross-country trip to the desert. Cram Enterprises had all hands on deck in the shop, while Henderson Motorsports driver Parker Kligerman was in disbelief at the late night his team pulled to get his flat black Chevrolet to a shiny Camping World wrap.
Timmy Hill wanted in on the Camping World Challenge since the start on Monday night, however, he deemed it would be impossible to wrap the truck before it headed out west. Once the truck arrived in Las Vegas, a local wrapping company, Gecko Wraps, was able to print the Camping World livery for Hill’s No. 56 that will be driven by his brother Tyler during Friday’s 200 mile race.
The ten trucks that have taken up Lemonis’ Camping World Challenge include the reigning series champion, Sheldon Creed. The full list is below.

Additionally, Brett Moffitt’s No. 02 Our Motorsports Camaro and Daniel Suarez’s No. 99 Trackhouse Racing Camaro ZL1 in the NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Cup Series, respectively, will also compete in Camping World liveries. Suarez’s deal with Camping World is a pre-established relationship with Trackhouse and finished 15th in last Sunday’s race at Homestead-Miami Speedway in the Camping World paint scheme.
