Frontstretch’s Truck Series content is presented by American Trucks

After nearly a month off, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series returns at the most unpredictable track on the circuit.

NASCAR released the preliminary entry list for Oct. 24 Fred’s 250 at Talladega Superspeedway. The list includes 32 entrants, meaning every team will make Saturday’s race.

No Sprint Cup Series regulars will attempt the 250-mile event. In their place, young prospects and family ties will fill the few open seats on the grid.

Brian Keselowski will make his NCWTS debut in the event, piloting brother Brad Keselowski’s No. 29 Cooper Standard Ford. The elder Keselowski was awarded the ride in place of Austin Theriault, who is recovering from a violent crash sustained in the previous race at Las Vegas.

Prospects Matt Tifft and Christopher Bell will join regular Erik Jones to complete the Kyle Busch Motorsports stable. Both drivers have found success in limited starts this season, with Tifft making his Xfinity Series debut last month and Bell claiming a Truck Series win at Eldora Speedway.

ARCA Racing Series superspeedway ringer Bobby Gerhart will make a rare NCWTS start, driving the No. 36 for Mittler Bros. Racing.

The Truck Series will roar to life on the 2.5-mile Talladega Superspeedway on Friday, Oct. 23, for two practice sessions at 1 p.m. ET and 3 p.m. ET, respectively. The field will then return on Saturday for Keystone Light Pole Qualifying at 10:30 a.m. Coverage of the Fred’s 250 will begin at 1 p.m. ET on FOX.

It’s called Fred’s 250 because Fred is the only one that bought a ticket so far!
