NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Drivin’ for Linemen 200 Notes and Entry List

NCWTSNASCAR NEWS

Passing Of The Torch: John Hunter Nemechek To Take Over Full-Time Reins From Father

There is a dawning of a new era in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

One day following his 18th birthday (June 11), John Hunter Nemechek is back in the driver’s seat for good.

Nemechek, who has been sharing seat time with his father Joe in the No. 8 Chevrolet, will become old enough to be eligible to finish the remainder of the NCWTS schedule beginning in Saturday’s American Ethanol presents the Drivin’ for Linemen 200 brought to you by Ameren (8:30 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1).

John Hunter – a member of the NASCAR Next initiative highlighting the sport’s top up-and-coming drivers – has competed in two NCWTS races so far this year, logging finishes of 29th at Martinsville and 22nd at Dover. He had problems with his equipment in both events. In 14 career races, he claims one top-five and six top-10 finishes. The Mooresville, North Carolina native won the prestigious Snowball Derby Late Model race at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida in December.

Last season at Gateway, Nemechek led 53 laps before a late spin relegated him to 15th. His performance led to praise on Twitter from a litany of drivers, including Tony Stewart, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Danica Patrick.

Joe will take in the event as a guest analyst in the MRN booth. The 1992 XFINITY Series champion has won 20 NASCAR national series races in his career (16 XFINITY Series, 4 Sprint Cup Series).

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Kroger 250 Notes and Entry List

NCWTSCuster To Pilot JR Motorsports’ No. 00 Chevrolet Silverado In Team’s Trucks Debut

Fresh off its first NASCAR XFINITY Series driver championship – powered by the efforts of then-18-year-old wunderkind Chase Elliott (the youngest title-winner in NASCAR national series history) – JR Motorsports makes its first foray into the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, debuting at Martinsville Speedway with another teenage prodigy – Cole Custer (the youngest NASCAR national series race and pole winner).

Custer, 17, will pilot the No. 00 Haas Automation Chevrolet Silverado in Saturday’s Kroger 250 (2:30 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1), the first of 10 scheduled races he will run for JRM this season. Last year in his first NCWTS campaign, he amassed one victory, two poles, two top fives, six top 10s and 150 laps led in nine starts.

JR Motorsports, owned by Dale Earnhardt Jr., has fielded race teams since 2002 and launched its XFINITY Series program in 2006. The team boasts 23 XFINITY Series wins and 42 late model victories, including track championships in 2012 and 2014. Elliott’s XFINITY Series championship paired with Regan Smith’s runner-up showing in points marked the first time in JRM’s history it secured a one-two finish atop the standings.

It was just the 18th start for the 19-year-old Californian, who will run a full schedule this season for Brad Keselowski Racing.

Following the race, Reddick received about 150 text messages in a 20-minute span, an occurrence he described as “unreal.”

Reddick will continue to chase his goal of a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship by competing in Saturday’s Hyundai Construction 200 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Lucas Oil 150 Notes and Entry List

NCWTSPhoenix And Homestead: The Final Countdown

It’s down to the seasoned veteran versus the rising star in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship battle.

With just two races left, defending champion Matt Crafton leads Ryan Blaney by 23 points heading into the Lucas Oil 150.

No matter the outcome at Homestead, at least one championship record will be set. Crafton would be the first back-to-back champion in the 20-year history of the NCWTS, while Blaney would be the series’ youngest champion at 20 years, 10 months and 14 days.

Before heading to Miami, the two drivers will make a stop at Phoenix International Raceway for Friday’s Lucas Oil 150. Both have performed well at the one-mile tri-oval located in the Sonoran Desert. Blaney boasts two top-10 finishes in as many starts, while Crafton claims four top-five and nine top-10 showings in 13 races at Phoenix. Neither has won there.

True to his word since he took the standings lead, Crafton maintains he is still more concerned with wins than points.

“I’m not worried about points,” said Crafton after his fifth-place finish at Texas. “We’re going for a win at Phoenix, it’s kind of a home track for me. We’ve been there a ton, and have a new truck so we’re really looking forward to it.”

Though unlikely, there is a mathematical possibility that Crafton clinches the championship at Phoenix. If he leaves Phoenix with a 48-point lead over Ryan Blaney, Crafton will lock up the 2014 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series title.

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Drive for the Cure 300 Notes and Entry List

NCWTS‘Dega Double Duty For Ryan Blaney

Ryan Blaney will log enough mileage this weekend to drive from Charlotte to Miami. He’s not going on vacation though.

The 20-year-old is running double-duty duty at Talladega Superspeedway, NASCAR’s largest track, racing 282 laps and 750 miles as he attempts to make a last-ditch effort for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship and play spoiler in his second-career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series start.

For his first task of the weekend, Blaney will pilot his No. 29 Brad Keselowski Racing Ford F-150 in the Fred’s 250 Powered by Coca-Cola on Saturday (1 p.m. on FOX). Currently third in the NCWTS standings, Blaney will try to close the 27-point deficit separating him from leader Matt Crafton. He claims finishes of sixth and 21st in his two-career starts at Talladega.

Blaney will get one night of rest before he hits the pavement at Talladega again in the NSCS GEICO 500 on Sunday. He will look to improve on his 27th-place effort in his first-ever NSCS start at Kansas in May and potentially steal the win from some Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup hopefuls.

The 2012 NASCAR Next alum better get used to having so much seat time. Talladega is the first of three double-duty weekends at the final five race venues of the season for Blaney, who will compete in both the NCWTS and NASCAR Nationwide Series events at Texas and Phoenix.
