Frontstretch’s Truck Series content is presented by American Trucks
The Truck Series, paired with IndyCar this weekend is struggling to fill their 32-truck grid. NASCAR has released the entry list for the June 5 Camping World Truck Series WinStar World Casino & Resort 400 at Texas Motor Speedway; as of now, only 27 teams are listed, meaning the field will run five short. The race, a NASCAR standalone, will be run as part of a companion weekend with the Verizon IndyCar Series.
With the Sprint Cup Series running in Pennsylvania, none of the series drivers will make the trip to Texas. Instead, Truck Series regulars will get a chance to compete amongst themselves for the win.
Jennifer Jo Cobb will pilot her self-owned No. 10 Grimes Irrigation & Construction Chevrolet, just one week after creating controversy when she walked onto the racing surface at Dover to voice her displeasure following an incident with Tyler Reddick. Penalties for the incident could be announced as soon as tomorrow.
Brad Keselowski Racing driver Austin Theriault will return to the team’s No. 29 Cooper Standard Ford for his third start of 2015. Theriault, 21, last ran at Kansas Speedway, finishing 14th.
Cup veteran Joe Nemechek will return to his own NEMCO Motorsports No. 8 Chevrolet. Nemechek’s son, John Hunter, is the typical driver of the vehicle, but the 17-year-old remains too young to compete at 1.5-mile tracks.
The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will return to Texas Motor Speedway on Thursday, June 4 for two practice sessions. The field will return on June 5 for Keystone Light Pole Qualifying at 6:15 p.m. ET, followed by the WinStar World Casino 400 at 9 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1.
