Kyle Busch will drive his No. 51 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota Tundra in 10 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races in 2013 with Toyota Care as the sponsor the team announced on Thursday.

The 10 races will be seven more than the amount Busch ran for his team in the Trucks in 2012 when he only competed in three races. Busch had won at least one Truck race in seven consecutive seasons before 2012 and will most likely be back to his winning ways in 2013. He has 30 career Truck Series wins in 104 starts. Fourteen of those wins came in his KBM No. 18 Truck in the 2010 and 2011 seasons.

Thirteen of his wins are in the No. 51 but that was from 2006 to 2009 when Busch drove for Billy Ballew Motorsports. He also had three wins in Ballew's No. 15 Truck in 2005. 

His first race will be the season-opener at Daytona International Speedway on February 22. Busch's other nine races in the No. 51 Toyota Care Tundra will be at other companion weekends with the Sprint Cup Series at Kansas Speedway April 20, Charlotte Motor Speedway May 17, Dover International Speedway May 31, Kentucky Speedway June 27, Michigan International Speedway August 17, Bristol Motor Speedway August 21, Chicagoland Speedway September 13, Texas Motor Speedway November 1 and in the Truck Series finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway on November 15.

Joey Coulter will drive the No. 18 full time for KBM and it was also reported on Thursday that Darrell Wallace Jr would drive full time as well in 2013 for KMB in the Trcuks. No word on what Truck number Wallace will be wheeling.
