“I’m looking forward to being with On Point Motorsports,” Fogleman said in a statement. “I know everybody that works here is dedicated to racing just like I am. They’re willing to work hard and use their resources, and they’ve had success in the previous season. I’m hoping to build on that.

A driver with 48 Truck Series starts to his name, Fogleman spent the past two years as a full-time driver for Young’s Motorsports. He drove the No. 02 entry in 2020 and finished without a top-10 run, but he turned a corner in 2021 after switching numbers.

Fogleman moved to the No. 12 Chevrolet Silverado for the season-opening race at Daytona International Speedway on February 12, and he kicked off a career year. Though his schedule started with a crash and a 30th-place finish.

Despite the rough start to the season, Fogleman made positive strides throughout the season while working with crew chief Ryan London. He secured three top-20 finishes before finally breaking through and securing his first top-10, a ninth-place run at Knoxville Speedway on July 9.

Fogleman added top-15 finishes at World Wide Technology Raceway and Las Vegas Motor Speedway before reaching Victory Lane for the first time in his career. He took the lead at Talladega Superspeedway after a collision with John Hunter Nemechek that sent the regular-season champion spinning before he crossed the finish line. Fogleman took the checkered flag while Tyler Hill finished second behind him.
