NASCAR veteran Scott Riggs is returning to NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway by reuniting with Ricky Benton Racing to drive the No. 92 Ford for the team in Friday night's race. It'll be Riggs' first truck race of 2014 after driving for Ricky Benton Racing in seven Truck Series events last year. Ross Chastain drove for RBR in the season opener at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in February and at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway in March. The team didn't attempt the most recent race at Kansas Speedway.

"It'll be good to be behind the wheel again," Riggs said.. "I am very appreciative of the opportunity that Ricky (Benton) has given me to drive the truck at Charlotte. This team has improved tremendously with the switch to Ford and bringing in (crew chief) Trip (Bruce) during the offseason. I am looking forward to a strong run."

Riggs ran a total of eight Truck Series races last year -- seven for Benton and one for RSS Racing. His best finish was just outside the top-10, as he finished 11th at Charlotte Motor Speedway in 2013, driving for Ricky Benton Racing.

"We have had some success with Scott behind the wheel," Benton said. "And we have made some strides with our program since he was with us last fall. He is a veteran driver, and I think he will give us a good idea of where we are in the development of our program."

Chastain finished 30th in the No. 92 at Daytona, but followed that up with a 14th-place finish at Martinsville.
