Kyle Busch Motorsports team owner Kyle Busch and Erik Jones will share driving duties behind the wheel of the No. 51 Toyota KBM entry in NASCAR Camping World Truck Series competition, according to a recent announcement from Kyle Busch Motorsports. The truck is expected to be entered in all 22 races in 2014 to compete for the series owner's championship. Jones will pilot the truck in 12 races, with Busch taking the wheel in the other 10.

"We are pleased to have ToyotaCare back onboard our No. 51 this year and really look forward to seeing Erik continue to develop as a driver with his increased schedule this season," Busch said. "Toyota and Toyota Racing Development (TRD) have put a lot of time and effort into the new Tundra that hits the track this year and it is going to make for an exciting season."

Jones made five Truck Series starts for KBM last year, posting top-five finishes in all five races. One of those top-fives was a win, scored in the next-to-last race of the season at Phoenix International Raceway last November. The victory made Jones the youngest-ever race winner in the Camping World Truck Series at 17 years, five months and nine days. He also drove for Kyle Busch Motorsports in three Super Late Model races in 2013, winning the Winchester 400 in Indiana and the Snowball Derby in Pensacola, Fla.

"Erik did a tremendous job for us last year picking up wins in both the truck and the Super Late Model while running a very limited schedule," Busch said. "At just 17-years-old he shows a lot of poise behind the wheel, provides great feedback to the crew chiefs and he has already proven that he can win on some of the biggest stages."

Busch will start the 2014 season in the truck, with the season beginning Feb. 21 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway. Jones' first race of the year in the No. 51 will be the March 29 event at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway.

"I'm really looking forward to getting back behind the wheel of the No. 51 Tundra and representing Toyota and ToyotaCare," Jones said. "I really learned a lot last year from Kyle and everyone at KBM. I felt like each time out we all grew as a team and at the end of the season I was able to fulfill a lifelong dream by winning in one of NASCAR's top three divisions. Going into this season, I feel like we have a great chance to get back to victory lane and go out and defend our owner's championship."
