The series debuted in 1995 as the NASCAR SuperTruck Series. It was also called the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series (1996-2008), the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (2009-2018), and the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series last season. The entitlement sponsorship was tweaked this year to the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series.
