Gamecocks Return to the Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway
May 17, 2017
When the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series returns to the track this Friday at Charlotte Motor speedway for its fifth event of the 2017 schedule, the University of South Carolina Gamecocks will once again be on board the No. 66 Bolen Motorsports Chevrolet. The Gamecocks were last on board at Martinsville Speedway in conjunction with the men’s and women’s run to the NCAA Final Four culminating in a national title for the Gamecock women’s team. The Bolen Motorsports team also came home with a team best finish of seventh place with Ross Chastain behind the wheel.
The South Carolina women’s basketball team brought home the University’s first women’s basketball national title and will use Friday’s event to showcase and celebrate that accomplishment. After an overwhelming response from fans following the NCAA Title runs and the Gamecock paint scheme, Bolen Motorsports has commissioned an officially licensed Gamecock Die-cast that is currently on sale with production and delivery expected early this fall. This 1:24 scale die-cast replica is currently available for pre-purchase at www.GamecockDieCast.com.
Team owner Jeff Bolen, an alumnus of the University of South Carolina, is looking forward to having the Gamecocks on board once again. “Really cool to see how this partnership with the University Athletics department has all come together,” said Jeff. “To be able to showcase them and their accomplishments has been really neat.”
Bolen Motorsports and driver Ross Chastain are returning to action this Friday at Charlotte Motor Speedway where they currently sit 16th in the series point standings and look forward to carrying the University of South Carolina and its athletics department under the lights Friday Night.
