Nelson Piquet Jr. will take over driving duties in the No. 9 NTS Motorsports Chevrolet for Friday's season-ending Camping World Truck Series race at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Ron Hornaday Jr. had been in that seat all season before his release last weekend at Phoenix International Raceway, where the four-time champion finished 28th in the Lucas Oil 150.

Piquet will see double duty during Ford Championship Weekend, wrapping up his rookie season in the Nationwide Series driving the No. 30 Turner Scott Motorsports Chevrolet in Saturday's Ford EcoBoost 300.  Piquet is 12th in Nationwide points, with four top 10s in 32 starts-10, and third in the Rookie of the Year standings behind Kyle Larson and Alex Bowman.

"I have some good friends and relatives in Miami, where I lived in 2010," Piquet said.  "So it's like a second home for me and I hope to do well in the final Truck Series event of the year.  I'm thankful to NTS Motorsports and the sponsors for this opportunity."

Ironically, Hornaday is entered in Friday's Truck Series finale in a Chevrolet fielded by Turner Scott Motorsports.

Motor Racing Network - "The Voice of NASCAR" - will have live coverage of Friday's season-ending Ford EcoBoost 200 in the Camping World Truck Series starting at 7:30 p.m. (ET), with live streaming at MRN.com.
