NTS Motorsports announced Monday that Chase Pistone has signed on to drive the team's No. 9 Chevrolet in 14 races in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this season.

Pistone is scheduled to make his debut with the team in the series' next race, the Kroger 250 on March 29 at Martinsville Speedway. The 30-year-old driver is scheduled to test at the .526-mile track Tuesday and Wednesday with NTS teammate and NASCAR Next driver Gray Gaulding, who will make his series debut at Martinsville to kick off his eight-race slate for team owner Bob Newberry this year.
 
Pistone's ties to Gaulding run deep. As a race car builder of Legends Cars and Super Late Models in North Carolina, Pistone helped a rapidly developing Gaulding work his way to a 2010 Young Lion Legends Cars national championship. Gaulding's father, Dwayne, now serves as NTS Motorsports' vice president of operations.
 
"It's pretty incredible how the circle of life is," Pistone said. "I have known Gray and his father, Dwayne, for several years. Gray drove Legends Cars out of my stable and was always one to keep your eye on. I can't thank Dwayne, Bob Newberry and all the guys at NTS enough for giving me this opportunity."
 
Pistone -- grandson of "Tiger" Tom Pistone, a two-time winner in NASCAR's premier series -- has two NASCAR national series starts, both at Martinsville. He finished 35th in the Truck Series in October 2005, driving for team owner Gene Christensen; he also placed 37th in October 2006 in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, driving for team owner Todd Braun.
 
Pistone will be paired with veteran crew chief Gere Kennon, who joined NTS in the offseason after working most of 2013 with driver Dakoda Armstrong and team owner Stacy Compton. Kennon, who has served as a crew chief in all three NASCAR national series, most notably was on the pit box for back-to-back championships for Nationwide Series legend Sam Ard in 1983 and '84.
