After a couple weeks off, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series is ready for a wild night.
NASCAR released the entry list for the July 9 UNOH 225 at Kentucky Speedway earlier today (July 6). The list includes 34 drivers, meaning two will fail to make Thursday’s race.
Team Penske journeyman driver Ryan Blaney will look to make his second NCWTS start of 2015, piloting the No. 29 Cooper Standard Ford for Brad Keselowski Racing. Blaney, 21, last ran at Dover, where he took the pole before finishing in seventh.
Daniel Suarez and Christopher Bell will return to the Kyle Busch Motorsports stable, joining series regular Erik Jones. Suarez, who currently competes full-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, will pilot the No. 51 ARRIS Toyota. Bell, 20, will make his second-career NCWTS start, piloting the No. 52 Toyota.
ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards competitor Cody Coughlin will look to make his NCWTS debut on Thursday, driving the No. 25 JEGS Toyota for Venturini Motorsports. Coughlin, 19, has made six starts in ARCA competition this year, earning a career-best finish of second at Talladega Superspeedway.
NASCAR Sprint Cup Series regular David Gilliland will shoe the No. 92 Blacks Tire/Goodyear Commercial Tire & Service Networks/Wynns Ford for owner Ricky Benton. Gilliland, a native of Riverside, California, has made three previous starts for the team in 2015, earning a best finish of sixth at Daytona International Speedway.
The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will roar to life at Kentucky Speedway on Thursday, July 9, running one four-hour practice session before returning for Keystone Light Pole Qualifying at 5:15 p.m. ET. Coverage for the UNOH 225 will begin at 7:30 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1.
