Accomplished sports car racer Cameron Lawrence will make the jump to stock cars in May. On Wednesday, Lawrence announced his plans to run the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Circuit of the Americas on 22 May. He will drive the #33 Chevrolet Silverado for Reaume Brothers Racing in his maiden NASCAR start.
Lawrence has the most wins in the Trans-Am Series’ TA2 division with twenty, all but two of which came in multi-class events. He won the 2013 and 2014 TA2 championships, the latter of which marked the first title for Dodge in Trans-Am. In 2020, he finished third in TA2 points with five podiums.
In 2015, Lawrence won the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona GTD class with Riley Motorsports; another victory at Watkins Glen helped him score the IMSA North American Endurance Cup. He returned to the Rolex 24 in 2018, where he finished fifteenth in GTD for Turner Motorsport. While 2018 marked his last start in prestigious endurance race to date, he continued to compete at the Daytona weekend in the Michelin Pilot Challenge. His 2020 MPC season ended with a victory in the finale at Sebring after taking over as an interim driver for Turner due to COVID-19 protocols.
Lcated in Austin, Texas, Circuit of the Americas will welcome NASCAR’s three national series for the first time in May. In addition to competing at the track in sports cars, Lawrence works there as a coach.
“The magnitude of this opportunity is incredible, and I feel fortunate to be making my début in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at my home track, Circuit of the Americas, with the support of three Texas-based and veteran-owned companies,” Lawrence stated. “I spend a lot of time at Circuit of the Americas, whether it’s racing or coaching, and I’m confident in my local knowledge.
“I’m thankful for the support of Texas Mobile Radiology, Impact Health Labs and Front Line Mobile Health. With their support, we plan to utilize the Camping World Truck Series as a platform to honor frontline workers and first responders. I’m hopeful this opportunity will foster future growth with Reaume Brothers Racing in the Camping World Truck Series.”
RBR fields two full-time trucks, the #33 and #34, for a multitude of drivers. Across the first five races of the 2021 season, the #33 has been driven by Jason White, Jesse Iwuji, Akinori Ogata, and Myatt Snider, and is currently thirty-seventh in owner points.
