Truck No. 99 historyEdit

After a split from Ranier Racing with MDM following the 2016 season, MDM took the 99 truck up to a full-time entry with a varying rotation of drivers. Austin Dillon scored the team's first top ten finish with a seventh-place finish at Atlanta Motor Speedway in the season's second race.[1] On August 8, 2017, MDM Motorsports announced that Darrell Wallace Jr. ("Bubba Wallace") would drive the 99 truck. Wallace ended up winning at Michigan International Speedway on August 12, 2017. Although the win was pronounced encumbered a couple days later.

The team had a quiet 2018 year, only running the Martinsville spring event with Tyler Matthews, the Eldora event with Sheldon Creed, and the fall Martinsville and ISM event with Chase Purdy.

The team announced on December 8 that they will not field a truck team in 2019, only focusing in K&N Pro Series and ARCA Racing Series.[2]

K&N Pro SeriesEdit

Car No. 12 historyEdit

For the operations of No. 12 in the K&N Pro Series East before the 2017 season, see HScott Motorsports

The No. 12 car is driven by Harrison Burton. The car is the same number that Burton drove for HScott Motorsports in 2016. For 2017, Burton uses an unorthodox paint scheme by placing the car number on the quarter panel rather than on the door.[3]

In 2017, Daniel Suárez drove the car in the K&N Pro Series West race at Sonoma.

Car No. 40 historyEdit

Car No. 41 historyEdit

ARCA Racing SeriesEdit

The No. 8 made its superspeedway debut in 2018 with new driver Chase Purdy, finishing in 21st at Daytona after a last lap crash. Purdy will run full-time in the car in 2018, all of the races as a Toyota.
