Truckin’ Thursdays: Memorable Series Moments Part II

Truckin’ Thursdays: Memorable Series Moments Part II

Once again this weekend, the Camping World Truck Series sits idle while the Nationwide and Cup series head off to Daytona International Speedway for the 4th of July weekend. With little in the way of news other than Kyle Larson’s announcement that he’ll be running Eldora (who didn’t see that one coming?) and Kyle Busch’s slap on the wrist for his truck being too low following Kentucky Speedway last Thursday, it’s a great time to take a look at more ...

Truckin’ Thursdays: Memorable Series Moments Part I

While the Nationwide and Cup series head out west for a visit to Sonoma, the Camping World Truck Series once again sits idle, and until NASCAR adjusts the schedule so these off weeks come along much less frequently, fans are left with quite a bit of downtime in between events. After watching the battle between John Hunter Nemechek and Matt Crafton, German Quiroga and Timothy Peters from Gateway International Speedway last week, I was left thinking about some of the ...

Truckin’ Thursdays: It’s Really Anyone’s Race This Weekend In St. Louis

After a brief hiatus, the stars of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will return to Gateway Motorsports Park in St. Louis, Missouri this Saturday night for the first time since 2010. Since the first Truck Series event at the 1.25-mile oval, back in 1998, the only past winner of the race who is still a series regular is Ron Hornaday, Jr. It will be interesting to see if the 55-year-old, four-time series champion will have an advantage when he ...

Truckin’ Thursdays: Eric Phillips Shines as Crew Chief

Truckin’ Thursdays: Eric Phillips Shines as Crew Chief

Kyle Busch’s victory in last weekend’s SFP 250 marked his 37th in the Camping World Truck Series. Depending on which side of the coin you fall, that will either make you groan, or it will make you smile. Perhaps what was more important coming out of that trip to victory lane, was that it was crew chief Eric Phillips’ 29th career win, making him the winningest crew chief in Truck Series history. Needless to say, Phillips was elated with the trip to ... Read More »

Truckin’ Thursdays: A Former Racer Returns To The Fold

After more than a month sitting dormant, the Camping World Truck Series returns to action tomorrow night for the first ever race under the lights at Kansas Speedway. Having sat dormant for so long, most news in the series was silent until this week. Camping World Extends Partnership Just in time for Friday night’s race, Camping World, the series sponsor since taking over for Craftsman in 2009, expanded their series sponsorship through the end of 2022. Back in March, the ... Read More »

But that doesn’t mean the series hasn’t seen its fair share of great drivers. This week, I bring to you the five best drivers in series history. Ron Hornaday, Jr. You can’t talk about the all-time greats in the Truck Series without mentioning Ron Hornaday, Jr. He holds nearly every ... Read More »

Truckin’ Thursdays: A Quintet Of Strong 2014 Starts

With just two races under their belts already, the Camping World Truck Series doesn’t return to the track for another month. But in those first two events a few drivers have already shown some promise for what could be an outstanding season for them. I already touched on Ron Hornaday, Jr.‘s success last week, scoring two solid top-10 finishes in what is currently a race-by-race schedule. While the veteran has certainly had a decent start to the year, he’s not the only ... Read More »

Truckin’ Thursdays: Musings From Martinsville

Once again, the Camping World Truck Series is in for another month off, before its first intermediate track event of the season at Kansas Speedway on May 9th. The four week wait notwithstanding, an exciting race at Martinsville was just what the doctor ordered for so many fans longing for the beating and banging that made the Truck Series what it is today. Less than a week removed from what was arguably one of the best NASCAR weekends all around in quite ... Read More »

Truckin’ Thursdays: A Trio Of Favorites With Something To Prove

This weekend, the Camping World Truck Series returns to action at Martinsville after more than a month off-track. Do you remember what happened at Daytona? Don’t worry, I had to think about it for a moment before I remembered that it was Kyle Busch who came out victorious with an impressive last-lap pass on Timothy Peters. Having grabbed the points lead with that runner-up finish, Peters looks to return to his home track and repeat his 2009 performance, where he ... Read More »
