NCWTS: Jordan Anderson Doesn’t Give Up; Scores Top 15 Finish at Iowa


If you’re a fan of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series you’ve probably heard of the up’s and down’s that fan favorite Jordan Anderson has dealt with this season. Perhaps you even read the story I did on Anderson back in March when he wasn’t sure he would race after a race incident at the Atlanta race that tore up his only truck.

Anderson could’ve thrown in the towel at that point, but that’s not the type of guy or racer he is. He doesn’t give up and he’s the perfect example of why you never should stop following your dreams.

Anderson drives himself and all his equipment to the NCWTS races, unlike many teams who fly or have drivers to drive their haulers across the country. Anderson has also been known to stay at a race track to work on a truck for the next race, not to mention his dad is his spotter! If all that’s not dedication than I don’t know what is!

Thanks to his Fueled by Fans program where fans can donate and sponsors like Bommarito Auto and Rusty’s Off Road who came on board for Friday night’s race at Iowa Speedway, Anderson has been able to continue to race.

Anderson has had great finishes the past two weeks. He captured a 17th place finish at Gateway Motorsports park in the Drive for Linemen 200 after starting 19th. That was followed up by a 15th place finish in Friday night’s M&M 200 at Iowa Speedway after he started 19th.  Anderson currently sits 18th in the points standings heading into the series next race at Kentucky Speedway.

Anderson took to Twitter after the race.

Many fans took to Twitter after the race at Iowa to express how elated they are with how Anderson did at Iowa. It’s bittersweet to see such a small team making gains each week. With the highs and the lows, they never give up and keep on trucking! If you need a little inspiration in your life I suggest you following Jordan on Twitter, his Twitter handle is: @j66anderson.

The NCWTS returns to racing for the Buckle Up in Your Truck 225 at Kentucky Speedway on July 6. Be on the lookout for Anderson and his No. 1 Chevrolet to keep on making their way to the front.
