The third-tier NASCAR circuit has been called the Gander RV and Outdoors Truck Series for the past two seasons, but will resurrect the Camping World name next year.

Camping World is the parent company of Gander RV and Outdoors and CEO Marcus Lemonis said it used the temporary name change to help launch the latter brand following the acquisition of its predecessor, Gander Mountain, from bankruptcy in 2017.

“The next generation of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series is right around the corner and we’re committed to the series that has delivered for our customers, fans and the entire Camping World family of brands,” Lemonis said in a statement on the switch.
