After recovering from injuries sustained in a snowboarding accident, Brennan Poole will run his first NASCAR race of 2021 when he rejoins On Point Motorsports and the #30 Toyota Tundra for Saturday’s Camping World Truck Series race at Texas Motor Speedway.

“I’m excited to be working with On Point Motorsports again and grateful to be back behind the wheel after my injury,” Poole stated“Thank you to everyone who has made this possible.”

In February, Poole broke his wrist while snowboarding, leaving him out of the driver’s seat for the next three months. Regardless, he did not have any rides lined up to start the season as he had lost his 2020 full-time Cup Series seat at Premium Motorsports/Rick Ware Racing. His lone Cup season ended with a points finish of thirty-second and a best run of tenth at Talladega in the fall.

The ride was his first full campaign in NASCAR since running the 2016 and 2017 Xfinity Series for Chip Ganassi Racing, during which he finished eighth and sixth in points with eight combined top fives. CGR released him after 2017, sparking a lawsuit pertaining to then-primary sponsor DC Solar.

After departing CGR, Poole joined OPM for a part-time Truck schedule in 2019, finishing second at Charlotte in addition to three more top tens. He remained with the team for the first eleven races in 2020 before exhausting his Cup-in-lower-series eligibility. Two of Poole’s four career top tens came at Texas, while Charlotte is a sister track.

On Point Motorsports is running the full 2021 Truck slate for the first time in team history. Danny Bohn has done much of the schedule with a best run of seventeenth at Daytona and Las Vegas, while Michele Abbate finished twenty-ninth in her NASCAR début at COTA in May. The #30 is currently twenty-seventh in owner points.
