In his time in NASCAR, Bayley Currey has bounced around quite a bit.

Between the three NASCAR national series, he’s driven for 10 different team owners.

These days, Currey is driving full-time in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series for Niece Motorsports alongside Matt Mills and a truck that is shared by a number of drivers. Currey took some time at World Wide Technology Raceway back in June to talk with Frontstretch about his time with the team and where things are going.

Phil Allaway, Frontstretch: Coming into the 12th race of the season, you’re currently 16th (he’s now 19th after 13 races) in points with a couple of 11th-place finishes at Kansas Speedway and Bristol Motor Speedway as your best finishes of the year. Perhaps not the most indicative of how you’ve run, but how would you describe your season to this point?

Bayley Currey: Hasn’t been the best, obviously. We’d like to have more top 10s, top-fives and some wins in there. We’ve had some great trucks, but we’ve had a lot of things not go our way.

At Charlotte … we had a really fast truck and kind of let that slip away from us. Getting stuck in the back with the riff-raff. Getting caught up in someone else’s mess.

Kind of goes for a lot of places. We’ve had a lot of weird stuff happen. We had a roof come off this year [at Atlanta Motor Speedway]. I don’t really know how to describe that.

Super proud of our team. They’ve been bringing me good trucks. Just gotta keep fighting, get them to the end [and] get them the finishes that they deserve.

Allaway: I didn’t want to spend too much time on the roof issue since it was two-and-a-half months ago. It did make some press since that doesn’t really happen unless you barrel-roll the truck. It must have been a very unusual feeling.

Currey: It was. It sucked since I think we [could have won] that race if the thing stays together. We had a really good truck, and we were kind of hanging out in fourth. But it wasn’t meant to be.

Definitely weird. Don’t think I’ll have it happen to me again. Never seen it happen before, but we push on.

Allaway: This is probably the most stable situation that you’ve had in your NASCAR career. You’ve been here at Niece Motorsports for a couple of years now. What’s the atmosphere like with the team?

Currey: It’s great, man. I’ve been in and out with the Niece group here since 2019 but really ramped it up last year. I think I got to run 11…
