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).

Rain washes out Truck Series qualifying cancelled; Kyle Busch on Pole.

Quaker State 400 - PracticeRain at Dover International Speedway on Thursday played havoc with the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) teams with getting in some practice for Friday’s Lucas Oil 200.  The first session was a total washout and the second session was regulated to 75-minutes, but rains returned and ended practice a little over 48-minutes into the session.

At the end of the session, and with a lap speed of 156.488 m.p.h., was Kyle Busch at the top of the scoring plyon with the quickest lap.

German Quiroga, Jr., put up the second quickest lap speed of 154.919 m.p.h, and he was followed by John Hunter Nemechek (154.905 m.p.h.) who was third, Darrell Wallace, Jr. (154.852) fourth and Timothy Peters (154.493) was fifth.

Series Sunoco Rookie of the Year (ROTY) candidate, Tyler Reddick (153.538 m.ph.) posted the sixth quickest lap speed, while Matt Crafton (153.165) was seventh, John Wes Townley (153.100) eighth, ROTY candidate Ben Kennedy (152.853) ninth and Johnny Sauter (152.607) rounding out the top-ten.

Qualifying, which was originally scheduled for 12:40 p.m. (ET) Friday, has been canceled and instead will be used as “Happy Hour” (final) practice, and the starting lineup will be based upon the NASCAR rulebook – owner points/attempts made – placing Kyle Busch on the “pole.”

With only 35 drivers attempting to fill the 36-truck field, there was no one failing to make the starting lineup.

The 15th annual Lucas Oil 200 is scheduled to get underway around 5:50 p.m. (ET) Friday evening, and FOX Sports 1 will provide television coverage of the event.
