Frontstretch’s Truck Series content is presented by American Trucks
Greg Biffle returns to his old stomping grounds, the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series, as the circuit travels to Texas Motor Speedway this weekend.
33 trucks are entered for the race, meaning one will fail to qualify, barring any entry list changes.
Biffle is the talk of the entry list, entering his first Truck Series event since 2004, when he finished eighth at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The 2000 series champion drove for Roush Fenway Racing in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series until the end of 2016 and had not surfaced on track until now, driving the No. 51 for Kyle Busch Motorsports.
In other entry list news, Camden Murphy will drive Nemco Motorsports’ No. 8 for a second time in 2019; Trey Hutchens enters his self-owned No. 14 for the second time; Ted Minor will attempt to qualify with his own team, the No. 25, for what would be his first start since 2017; Scott Stenzel will drive Reaume Brothers Racing’s part-time No. 34 for his second start of the year; and Kyle Benjamin makes his first appearance in Niece Motorsports’ No. 45 of the season, the machine’s first event of the year without Ross Chastain.
Practice for the race, the Truck Series’ ninth of 2019, begins Thursday, June 6, with qualifying the next day. The race itself will be held Friday night, June 7, at 9 p.m. ET.
