Johnny Benson is last year’s NASCAR Craftsman Truck Champion. Benson will pilot the Red Horse Racing K&N Truck. His teammate T.J. Bell will pilot the No. 11 Red Horse Racing Toyota Tundra.

“Johnny had the number one spot last year in the series and it seemed fitting that the person who is number one, would drive the No. 1 truck,” said Thomas DeLoach, Red Horse Racing Owner and Managing Partner. “I want the headlines to read Number One Won One.”

Benson is paired with crew chief Trip Bruce at Red Horse Racing. Together Benson and Bruce  have scored nine wins, 26 top-five finishes and 37 top ten finishes in 50 starts. “We are excited to have Johnny,” said DeLoach. “He is one of the most accomplished drivers in NASCAR. He’s won races at every level and has won championships all the way back to his ASA days. “

Bell had his career best NASCAR Camping World Truck Series last season and earned the Most Improved Driver Award in 2008. The 2009 inaugural NASCAR Camping World Truck race will mark Bell’s first time racing at Daytona in one of NASCAR’s top three elite series.

“We use K&N air and oil filters on both trucks,” said DeLoach. “K&N makes a product that provides good air flow to the engine to develop the maximum horsepower we need to win.”

Benson is looking to win another title trophy after edging out Rod Hornaday, Jr., by seven points last year. The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series returns to SPEED TV. It will begin with the season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250 on February 13. SPEED will broadcast 23 of the 25 races.
