Wendell Chavous Returns to Truck Series Full-Time

Wendell Chavous will once again run the full NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule for Premium Motorsports, after landing a season-long sponsorship from Sobriety Nation.

“I’m excited about the upcoming season and looking forward to representing Sobriety Nation at every race,” Chavous said. “They help a lot of people with addiction and if someone makes the call for help because they saw it on my truck, it will be real special. I’m glad to have Brian (Keselowski) as my crew chief again. We made a lot of progress last year and throughout the winter, so I believe we will keep getting better and build on that momentum. I cannot thank Jay (Robinson) enough for giving me the opportunity to drive for him, and I wouldn’t be here without Joe (Testino) for believing in me and giving me the chance to live out my dream, I’m grateful.”

Sobriety Nation is a national non-profit organization dedicated to ending the tragedies addiction causes families.

“We are very excited about the opportunity to partner with Wendell Chavous and Premium Motorsports in bringing awareness to the drug epidemic in the Unites States,” Joe Testino, Founder and President of Sobriety Nation, said. “Sobriety Nation offers unbiased educational information for both suffering addicts and their loved ones, as well as, offers financial assistance to those who need help, but cannot afford the rising cost of in-patient treatment. Sobriety Nation is a national 501(c) 3 non-profit that is financially supported by individuals, business’ and churches. To join us on our mission of providing hope, please visit and help us continue giving people an opportunity at a sober way of life.” 

Chavous competed in 21 of the 23 races last year, posting a season-best 14th-place finish at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Premium Motorsports also confirmed Brian Keselowski will once again serve as the crew chief for the No. 49 Chevrolet Silverado.
