Race Weekend Central

Entry List: Alpha Energy Solutions 250

Following a month-long hiatus, the Camping World Truck Series returns this weekend for a short-track showdown at Martinsville Speedway. With 36 trucks entered, four will go home on Saturday.

Sprint Cup Series drivers were absent from the truck field in the opening two races of the season, but Kyle Busch and Kyle Larson will compete in the Alpha Energy Solutions 250.

This will be Busch’s first of four scheduled starts this year in his self-owned truck. It will also be his first time competing in the trucks at Martinsville since finishing runner-up in April 2011.

Larson will drive for GMS Racing this weekend in the No. 24 truck. It will be his eleventh career start in the series and first for this team.

Fresh off of his K&N East Series victory last weekend at Greenville-Pickens Speedway, JJ Haley will compete for Braun Motorsports in the No. 32 truck. It will be his fourth career NCWTS start and second at Martinsville.

Kaz Grala will make his series debut on Saturday in a fourth GMS Racing entry. He has competed in the K&N East Series over the last two years and has 21 career top-10 finishes in 33 starts.

Daniel Suarez will pilot the No. 51 ARRIS Toyota for Kyle Busch Motorsports again this weekend as he seeks his first career series victory.

Although not on the initial entry list, Ryan Truex is expected to be back in the field this weekend in a Hattori Racing entry.

The trucks will have three practices on Friday with the first taking place at 10 a.m., the second at 12:30 p.m., and the third and final coming at 3 p.m. (all times ET). They will qualify on Saturday at 11:15 a.m. and then race at 2:30 p.m. on FS1.

No Xfinity Race week but the Truck Series is at Martinsville with the Cup Series, So I guess Kyle Busch has got to show his muscle in that series to. It was nice not seeing Cup Drivers in the first 2 Races to actually see both races with a Truck Series regular winning the race and not like Xfinity Series Regulars with 0 wins.
I enjoyed watching the Truck Series regulars battle it out.
Not only Kyle Busch but Kyle Larson also running in the race.


Kyle’s gotta get the money back for the fine.
