Ross Chastain will drive the No. 92 Ford entry for Ricky Benton Racing in NASCAR Camping World Truck Series competition in 2014, according to an announcement Tuesday from the race team. In addition to the new driver, the upcoming race season also brings a manufacturer change for RBR, as the team fielded Chevrolets from 2010 until 2013.

"RBR had a long, successful, championship-winning history with Ford Motor Company before coming to the Truck Series in 2010, team owner Ricky Benton said. "We have grown our truck program over the last four years and feel like partnering with Ford is the best move to help us continue to grow."

Before the move to the Camping World Truck Series, Ricky Benton Racing fielded Fords in the Pro Cup Series and various NASCAR touring series for over 20 years.

Chastain drove a Ford truck last year in NCWTS competition as a driver for Brad Keselowski Racing. In all, Chastain has 41-career Truck Series starts and boasts stats that include five top-fives and 12 top-10 finishes.

"After a successful 2013 season, I knew I needed to make the right move," Chastain said. "Aligning myself with Ricky Benton and continuing my relationship with the Ford Racing family felt like a move in the right direction for me. Everything came together a little later than we expected, but Ricky is putting all the right parts and people in place to have a strong year."
