In one its rare standalone weekends, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) will suffer from a small field.
NASCAR released the entry list for the June 13 NCWTS Drivin’ for Linemen 200 at Gateway Motorsports Park this afternoon (June 8). The list includes on 26 entrants, six short of a full field.
While the field is small, many strong teams will be present. John Hunter Nemechek, who turns 18 on June 11, will return to the No. 8 NEMCO Motorsports Chevrolet as part of a plan for him to run the rest of the season. Nemecheck, son of Sprint Cup Series winner Joe Nemechek, led 53 laps at Gateway in 2014 before finishing in 15th.
Fresh off of two ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards starts at New Jersey Motorsport Park and Pocono Raceway, Cole Custer will return to the No. 00 Haas Automation Chevrolet for JR Motorsports. Custer, 17, has one career NCWTS win, coming last season at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
With the Sprint Cup Series and Xfinity Series in Michigan, no cup drivers will attempt Saturday’s race. In their place, Austin Theriault will pilot the No. 29 Cooper Standard Ford for Brad Keselowski Racing, Brandon Jones will drive the No. 33 Chevrolet for GMS Racing and Matt Tifft will make his third start in the No. 51 for Kyle Busch Motorsports.
The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will complete all scheduled events at Gateway on June 13, with a 150-minute practice session from 10:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. ET, followed by Keystone Light Pole Qualifying at 5:45 p.m. ET. Coverage of the Drivin’ for Linemen 200 will begin at 8:30 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1.
