Billy Ballew Motorsports to become Vision Aviation Racing

Billy Ballew Motorsports, the team that has fielded the Nos. 15 and 51 trucks in the Camping World Truck Series, is now known as Vision Aviation Racing.

Vision Aviation Racing is moving up from the late-model ranks and plans to put its late-model drivers, Justin Johnson and Dusty Davis, in the two trucks. The team will continue to use Toyota equipment.

Aric Almirola ran for Ballew last year in the Truck Series and finished second in the points standings in the No. 51 truck. Ballew struggled with sponsorship last year for his No. 15 truck, even shutting it down for parts of the season, and Almirola's sponsor, Graceway Pharmaceuticals, had serious financial troubles.

Before starting his own team, Kyle Busch drove for Ballew in the Truck Series from 2005-2009, grabbing 16 of BBM's 19 Truck Series wins. According to a release, Ballew will retain an ownership stake in the team.
