ThorSport Racing announced on Wednesday that 18-year-old driver Chandler Smith will be joining the team full-time in 2024, with sponsorship from Quanta Services. The specific team within ThorSport that Smith will drive for has yet to be determined. In the 2023 season, ThorSport fielded four full-time Truck teams for drivers Matt Crafton, Ty Majeski, Hailie Deegan, and Ben Rhodes, the series champion. Smith had a successful rookie season in 2023, driving for team owner Bill McAnally in 22 out of 23 races. He achieved three top-five and nine top-10 finishes, with his best finish being second at the season finale at Phoenix. Smith expressed his excitement about the opportunity to race for a championship organization like ThorSport and looks forward to the start of the 2024 season. Prior to his time in the Truck Series, Smith had a successful career in various racing series, including winning the 2021 Southern Super Series Championship and being the 2019 Snowball Derby runner-up.
