COLUMBIA, SC (MAY 17, 2017) — When the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series returns to the track this Friday at Charlotte Motor speedway for its fifth event of the 2017 schedule, the University of South Carolina Gamecocks will once again be on board the No. 66 Bolen Motorsports Chevrolet. The Gamecocks were last on board at Martinsville Speedway in conjunction with the men’s and women’s run to the NCAA Final Four culminating in a national title for the Gamecock women’s team. The Bolen Motorsports team also came home with a team best finish of seventh place with Ross Chastain behind the wheel.

After an overwhelming response from fans following the NCAA Title runs and the Gamecock paint scheme, Bolen Motorsports has commissioned an officially licensed Gamecock Die-cast that is currently on sale with production and delivery expected early this fall. This 1:24 scale die-cast replica is currently available for pre-purchase at
