Austin Dillon on racing for NTS Motorsports:
"I'm looking forward to the opportunity to race alongside Brennan and work with everyone at NTS. It's always fun to come back and race in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, especially in fast, competitive Chevrolets."

Inside the Truck with Austin Dillon:
"Kansas Speedway is one of my favorite tracks, and I think Friday night's race will be really good. I can't wait for a little Friday night racing under the lights. Restarts will be important. We tested at Kansas Speedway with my NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team a few weeks ago and the track is getting faster as the new asphalt ages. It should make for some good racing. I hope I can learn some things on Friday night that will help me on Saturday."

From the Box with Crew Chief Jeff Hensley:
"It's a great opportunity for NTS Motorsports to have Austin in the truck and it's an opportunity of a lifetime for myself to crew chief him. Everyone at NTS Motorsports has worked hard to build a really good truck and hopefully we can take advantage of it and get Bob Newberry a win."

A note from Bob Newberry:
"This weekend will represent a big change for the NTS Motorsports team. Last year Austin sat in for Brennan at Chicago due to a food poisoning issue, this time around he will be Brennan's teammate and I'm excited to watch Austin and Brennan share information and help each other on and off the track."
