Rogers brought the No. 92 fleetHQ / Action-Gator Tire / BTS Tire & Wheel Distributors Chevrolet Silverado home 3rd in the teams’ debut at Daytona. 

Rogers got some help from Kyle Busch on the last lap to help move the No. 92 up to a strong top five finish.  Rogers and team also leave Daytona with the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series points lead going into the next race.  “This is a great feeling to run this strong in our first race together, said Clay Rogers.  We have a great combination and hope to continue our momentum into the next race in Phoenix this Friday night.”  The RBR Team will now focus on the upcoming Phoenix International Raceway Lucas Oil 150 this Friday night.   

“We are extremely excited to leave Daytona with such a strong finish and we want to thank Action-Gator Tire Company for marketing with us during this event,” said Ricky Benton, RBR Team Owner.  “We have won championships at all the other levels we have raced in but to run this strong in Daytona is definitely as great a feeling as any.  We feel we have a winning combination with Clay and our crew chief, Michael Hester.  We have a strong, team focused organization that is ready to take it to the next level.
