Camping World Truck Series Kroger 200 Preview


Laps: 200
Miles: 105.2
Track: 0.526 mile Asphalt/Concrete track
Qualifying: Saturday, 10:30am EST on Speed
2010 winner: Ron Hornaday
2010 polesitter: Kyle Busch

Three races to go in the 2011 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. This weekend the Truck Series heads to Martinsville Speedway for the Kroger 200 on Saturday afternoon. This is the second time the series returns to Martinsville this season.  In April, pole-sitter Johnny Sauter passed Kyle Busch on the next to last lap to hold on to his first Camping World Truck Series victory of the season and the third of his career.

Victory at Martinsville Speedway may carry extra importance for the Truck Series regulars who are involved in a tight points battle, which is definitely heating up.

Austin Dillon currently leads the series with only a three point advantage over James Buescher.  Not to be overlooked are the duo of Johnny Sauter (14 points behind) and defenfind race champion Ron Hornaday Jr., who stands 16 points back.

Denny Hamlin will make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut this weekend in the No. 18  Toyota Traxxa Tundra for Kyle Busch Motorsports.

Live coverage of the Kroger 200 will begin at 1:30 pm EST on SPEED TV with the NCWTS Setup.

NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series will head to Texas Motor Speedway next weekend for the WinStar World Casino 350k. Kyle Busch is the defending race winner.
