NASCAR Camping World Truck Series 1-800 Car Cash Mudsummer Classic Notes and Entry List

TrucksGet The Dirt On Eldora

From asphalt to dirt, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series makes a transition to the high-banked clay oval of Eldora Speedway on July 23 for the second consecutive season. The only dirt track on the schedule, Eldora will challenge even the most seasoned of veterans as it remains unique to the truck series among national series schedules.

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Kyle Larson and NCWTS Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender Tyler Reddick will use their dirt racing backgrounds to their advantage as both drivers have experience in navigating the turns of Eldora.

In 2012, Reddick became the youngest driver to start in the World 100 at Eldora. At 16 years old, he was one of 123 entries in the annual dirt Late Model event and started on the outside pole, leading the first three laps. Although Reddick now focuses primarily on trucks, he recently made his first 2014 dirt Late Model start on July 4, and then won his second start the follow day at Highland Speedway in Illinois.

Larson is also a household name at Eldora as the driver has frequented the track on numerous occasions. In his first visit in September 2011, he became the second driver to sweep all three USAC features in the 4-Crown Nationals, finding Victory Lane in the National Midget, Sprint Car and Silver Crown Series’ events. Since then, Larson created his own sprint car team, Larson Marks Racing in 2014 and experienced his first win as an owner when driver Shane Stewart won the World of Outlaws STP Series at Eldora earlier this year.

Eldora has been good to Larson and Reddick in the past and with many drivers having limited experience on dirt, familiarity of the track may prove to be the key to success.
