SANDUSKY, Ohio — 2014 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East runner-up Cameron Hayley is going racing full-time in the Camping World Truck Series with ThorSport Racing this season.

Hayley, an 18-year-old from Calgary, Alberta, will take over the team’s No. 13 Toyota Tundra and compete for the rookie of the year title with sponsorship being provided by Hayley’s family sponsor, Cabinets by Hayley.

Jeff Hensley, a crew chief for over a decade in the Camping World Truck Series, will serve as crew for the No. 13 truck for the 2015 season. Hensley moves over to the No. 13 team after serving as ThorSport driver Johnny Sauter’s crew chief for the final 10 races of the 2014 season.

“It’s always been a dream of mine to run in one of NASCAR’s top three series,” Hayley said. “I was able to get my feet wet last year running a few races, but to be able to say I’m running full-time this year is really a chance to live out my dream.

“I’ll make the move to Sandusky later this year so I can be in the shop every day, helping the guys, and really getting to know these trucks. I want to take full advantage of everything ThorSport Racing has to offer, soaking everything in this season.

“Duke and Rhonda Thorson have built a championship-winning team with great resources and equipment and it’s an honor to be a part of their organization.”

In three career starts in the Truck Series – all in 2014, Hayley has two top-10 finishes with a best finish of sixth coming at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in September.

In conjunction with his partial Truck schedule with Turner Scott Motorsports, Hayley made a name for himself full-time with TSM in the K&N Pro Series East last year when he finished second in points to teammate Ben Rhodes after recording seven top-fives and nine top-10s in 16 starts.

“Cameron has seen success at an early age and has been a great student of the sport,” ThorSport team owner Duke Thorson said. “He has a wealth of natural talent, a great personality and we believe he’s the complete package.

“By making the move to live in Sandusky full-time, he’s proven that he’s fully vested in this team and the opportunity he’s been given. Being at the shop every day, learning these trucks and building a foundation with his team is what will set him apart from the competition.

“Everyone at ThorSport Racing is anxious to see him evolve on the race track this season.”
