Diversified Motorsports Enterprises returns at Talladega Superspeedway

Diversified Motorsports Enterprises returns at Talladega Superspeedway

TALLADEGA, Ala.: For the first time since Kansas Speedway in July, Diversified Motorsports Enterprises (DME) will return to the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series (NGROTS) scene set to compete in Saturday afternoon’s Chevrolet Silverado 250 at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway.

Robby Lyons will drive the team’s No. 97 Chevrolet Silverado in his second NGROTS start at the 2.66-mile superspeedway.

Lyons, 31, will continue to have the support of Sunwest Construction for the 19th race of the season.

“Diversified Motorsports Enterprises is glad to be back at the track this weekend at Talladega,” said team owner Logan Puckett. “Without question, the year hasn’t gone as we hoped with the pandemic and all – but as an organization, we’ve rolled with the punches and we’re just thankful to be able to participate in the races that we can.

“Robby did a great job in the doubleheader at Kansas Speedway at July despite the hurdles he had to face and of course, Jesse (Little) did a good job to kick off the 2020 season to get us locked into the race and get DME to its first NASCAR green flag.”

Lyons is happy to be back on the NASCAR scene and the opportunity to draft his Diversified Motorsports Enterprises team into the spotlight.

“Bruce Cook and the entire Diversified Motorsports Enterprises crew have put together an incredible truck in preparation for this weekend’s race at Talladega,” said Lyons. “With superspeedway racing, half the battle is won In the shop before we even show up at the race track.

“Saturday will be my sixth career restrictor-plate start, so I have a lot of confidence in being able to draw on that experience. I can’t thank Logan (Puckett) with DME and Sunwest Construction enough for another opportunity to wheel the No. 97 Chevrolet Silverado.”

Thinking back to the speed in their No. 97 Diversified Motorsports Enterprises Chevrolet Silverado in the season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway, Puckett is optimistic about the team’s potential in the 94-lap race this weekend.

“We had speed in our truck at Daytona, we showed that,” Puckett added. “Everyone knows though that superspeedway racing brings all the emotions to the forefront. You can be excited one minute and disappointed the next.

“I’ve watched Robby compete in several superspeedway races and he seems to have a knack for it. I know he’s going to do all he can behind the wheel to put himself and our DME team in a position for a good finish and that’s all you can ask or hope for when it comes to tracks like Daytona or Talladega.”

Under the leadership of Bruce Cook, Lyons, a native of Seminole, Fla. will make his second Talladega Truck start and hopes to improve on his respectful 14th place outing in 2018.

In 15 prior NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series starts, Lyons has a career-best finish of 12th in his series debut at Phoenix (Ariz.) Raceway in 2017.

Talladega marks the fifth NGROTS start of 2020 for the popular driver.

“Diversified Motorsports Enterprises is excited to have Robby Lyons back behind the wheel this weekend at Kansas,” offered Puckett. “I reiterate that our team is focused on growing and that includes adding additional races to our schedule even with a different driver.

“Robby did a great job at Pocono as has Jesse (Little) to kick off the 2020 season with our partner Teletrac Navman. Because of the coronavirus pandemic and the protocols in place with NASCAR, our initial 2020 schedule has shifted. We’re working hard with all of our partners on their agendas and we will release a revised schedule soon.”

As for Lyons, Puckett says he was impressed with his efforts at Pocono and looks forward to a double dose of Truck Series racing this weekend at Kansas.

“Robby has done a great job under the Diversified Motorsports Enterprises banner and look forward to seeing the job he can do at Kansas. I know that the lack of practice and even qualifying can be a determent to some of the teams, but we take the lack of track time in stride and just look forward to a positive weekend of racing with Robby, Bruce, the DME team and partners too.”

Under the leadership of Bruce Cook, Lyons, a native of Seminole, Fla. will make his second Kansas Speedway Truck start. In 13 prior NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series starts, Lyons has a career-best finish of 12th in his series debut at Phoenix (Ariz.) Raceway in 2017.

Diversified Motorsports Enterprises energized ahead of Truck Series debut

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla: Diversified Motorsports Enterprises’ big week is here, and they are ready to deliver.

With new marketing partner Teletrac Navman, Logan Puckett’s Diversified Motorsports Enterprises team heads to Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway looking for big results in their NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series debut.

Armed with the veterans of driver Jesse Little and crew chief Bruce Cook, the duo looks to take their wealth of experience and produce magical results in Friday night’s NextEra Energy Resources 250.

“I’m so excited for our Diversified Motorsports Enterprises team,” said team owner Logan Puckett. “This is an awesome opportunity for me as a young, ambitious owner and to have the support of Teletrac Navman and the leadership of Jesse and Bruce. Our lean green Teletrac Navman machine looks sweet and I’m hoping for a good finish on Friday night.

Although Puckett is familiar with the characteristics of superspeedway racing, he’s hoping for the best and taking the positive approach to the Truck Series opener, the first race in a limited schedule for the DME team in 2020.

“I feel like we have a really good truck, it sure does look good with the Teletrac Navman colors too. Look, it’s Daytona. It can appear that you’re going to have an awesome night and then something completely out of your control happens and the night is over. We’re prepared for that.

“Our goal is to go to Daytona this weekend and make some noise. Get the truck into the show, draft to the front and try and stay there. If we can do that – it will give us some good momentum to take to our next race in March.”

Daytona is the first of at least a six-race deal with Teletrac Navman, a leader in fleet and management software.

“We are thrilled for the opportunity to partner with Diversified Motorsport Enterprises and the No. 97 race team,” said Jens Meggers, president Teletrac Navman. “NASCAR is associated with brands that are influential in their space and we are honored to be among those brands during the 2020 season.

“Working together with Logan (Puckett) and the DME team will make for an exciting year in both of our first seasons. We are eager to take advantage of the exposure this partnership will surely bring.”

Driver Jesse Little, 22, will have a busy week at the “World Center of Racing.” In addition to the Truck Series, he’ll also be competing in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for JD Motorsports with Gary Keller.

“I’m super pumped to go to Daytona with JD and DME,” offered Little. “I’m proud to represent Teletrac Navman and be apart of Logan’s debut in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series. Bruce and the rest of the DME guys have worked hard on the truck and I’m focused on winning!”

Despite 31 starts in the Truck Series, Friday night’s season-opener will be Little’s first race on a superspeedway.

Following Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway, DME will return to NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series competition at Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway in March 2020.

The NextEra Energy Resources 250 (100 laps | 250 miles) is the first of 23 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series races on the 2020 schedule. Practice begins on Thurs, Feb. 13 from 4:05 p.m. – 4:55 p.m. A final practice session is set for 5:05 p.m. – 5:55 p.m. Qualifying is set for race day, Fri., Feb. 14 beginning at 3:10 p.m. The 32-truck field will take the green flag shortly after 7:30 p.m. with live coverage on FOX Sports 1, the Motor Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90).
