NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Lucas Oil 225 Notes and Entry List

NCWTSSauter Continues To Lead The Pack

Johnny Sauter has made the upper echelon of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series standings his home this season. He currently leads the driver points standings over ThorSport teammate Matt Crafton (-7) and remains the only competitor to appear in the top five all season.

Don’t plan on Sauter falling from his perch atop the standings anytime soon, if at all. He has a combined average finish of 9.2 at the remaining eight tracks (he has yet to make a start at New Hampshire Motor Speedway).

If Sauter can hold on to the No. 1 spot, he will clinch his first NCWTS title. His previous high championship finishes were a runner-up showing in 2011 and a third-place performance in 2010. Last season, he finished fourth after posting a career-high three wins.

Trailing Sauter and Crafton in the standings are Ryan Blaney (-13), Darrell Wallace Jr. (-38) and German Quiroga (-48).

Sauter has just one win this season, but has failed to finish in the top 10 in only two of 14 races.

Notes: While teams in all three NASCAR series in action at Chicagoland this week will run the same left-side tire code, Nationwide and Camping World Truck teams will run their own right-side tire code . . . this is the same combination of left- and right-side tires that Nationwide and Camping World Truck teams have run at Chicagoland since 2011 . . . this is also the same tire set-up that these teams have run at Homestead over that same span . . . NASCAR teams have also run this left-side code (D-4392) with a different right-side code at both Texas (all three national series) and Darlington (Cup and Nationwide) earlier this season . . . as on all NASCAR ovals greater than one mile in length, teams are required to run inner liners in all four tire positions at Chicagoland . . . air pressure in those inner liners should be 12-25 psi greater than that of the outer tire.
