CHARLOTTE, N.C. — BK Racing has formally announced that Johnny Sauter will pilot their No. 83 Toyota to attempt to qualify for the Daytona 500.

Sauter, driver of the No. 98 ThorSport Racing Toyota in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, will attempt to make his first Daytona 500 in eight years and will attempt to make his first Sprint Cup start since August’s 400 at Pocono Raceway.

Sponsorship for the No. 83 machine for the ‘Great American Race’ will be provided by Dustless Blasting, who will also sponsor the car at Daytona International Speedway in July and in both Talladega Superspeedway races.

“I am excited to be joining the BK Racing team for the start of the 2015 NASCAR season,” Sauter said. “I am thankful for the opportunity to get behind the wheel of the No. 83 Dustless Blasting Toyota, and compete with the top athletes in the motorsports industry.

“We are going to get out there and give it our all and hopefully come home with a good finish for this team and sponsor.”

The 36-year-old from Necedah, Wisconsin, will compete in a partial schedule for BK Racing in the upcoming season but will continue to run full-time for ThorSport Racing in the Camping World Truck Series.

BK Racing’s team owner, Ron Devine, is looking forward to Sauter’s return to his organization for the upcoming year. Sauter’s lone Sprint Cup start in 2014 at Pocono came in BK Racing’s No. 93 Toyota in a start-and-park effort.

“We are very comfortable with our chances to race our No. 83 Dustless Blasting Camry into the Daytona 500 with Johnny behind the wheel. He has a lot of experience running upfront, a veteran in the sport and a loyal Toyota Racing driver,” Devine said. “Regardless of the outcome of the Budweiser Duels, we look forward to working with Johnny on a select race schedule in 2015.”
