Brenden Queen to Make Truck Series Debut With TRICON

Late Model Stock Standout to Wheel No. 1 at North Wilkesboro

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (March 8, 2024) — TRICON Garage (TRICON) announced today that CARS Tour late model stock car standout Brenden “Butterbean” Queen will make his NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series (NCTS) debut at North Wilkesboro (N.C.) Speedway behind the wheel of the No. 1 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro.

The Chesapeake, Virginia driver had a breakout campaign in 2023 earning four victories, 13 top-fives and 15 top-10s in CARS Tour competition en route to a second-place finish in the series points standings. Beyond the CARS Tour, Queen captured his second Hampton Heat triumph at Langley Speedway and scored victories in the Battle of the Stars at All-American Speedway and the Thanksgiving Classic at Southern National Motorsports Park.

Queen’s No. 1 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro will carry primary sponsorship from Best Repair Company, a full-service mechanical and electrical repair and maintenance provider based in Norfolk, Virigina. Longtime racing supporter Leith Cars will also be featured in an associate role.

“I have been dreaming of this since I started racing go karts at six years old,” said Queen. “It’s an honor to have the opportunity to team up with TRICON and Toyota to make my Truck Series debut at the track that put my name on the map last year.”

The Wright Brand 250 from North Wilkesboro Speedway will be televised live on FOX Sports 1 on Saturday, May 18 at 1:30 P.M. ET, with radio coverage provided by the Motor Racing Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.
