Gander Outdoors Truck SeriesEdit

Truck No. 1 historyEdit

NextGen Motorsports entered a No. 35 entry that was to be driven by Travis Kvapil for the 2018 Alpha Energy Solutions 250, but wound up withdrawing the entry.

NextGen announced on October 24, 2018 that Inspectra Thermal Solutions would sponsor Parker Kligerman at Texas Motor Speedway in the JAG Metals 350, although Brennan Poole was later named as a replacement. A 15th-place finish was marred by a practice penalty for losing ballast weight. The penalty suspended NextGen's crew chief, truck chief and chief mechanic until after the 2019 NextEra Energy Resources 250.

The team returned two weeks later renamed as Vizion Motorsports in the Truck Series season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway with Poole, finishing nineteenth.
