Frontstretch’s Truck Series content is presented by American Trucks
The NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series returns to Charlotte Motor Speedway this weekend, with 37 trucks scheduled to attempt the North Carolina Education Lottery 200, barring entry list changes. This means that five trucks will fail to qualify for the race in NASCAR’s backyard.
DGR-Crosley has three entries on tap for the Charlotte weekend. Anthony Alfredo makes his fourth start of 2019 in the team’s No. 15, Natalie Decker is behind the wheel of the No. 54 for the sixth time this year, and Tyler Ankrum continues his stint at the helm of the No. 17.
Former K&N Pro Series driver Trey Hutchens will make his second career Truck Series start. Hutchens finished 16th in his 2017 debut at Iowa Speedway, and he will attempt this weekend’s event in his own race team’s No. 14.
Joe Nemechek attempts his sixth race of the 2019 campaign, this time in the NEMCO Motorsports No. 87, while Camden Murphy returns to the series in the team’s No. 8. Nemechek has a best finish of 16th so far this season. Chad Finley enters his second event of 2019 in his self-owned team’s No. 42.
On Point Motorsports returns with Brennan Poole in the No. 30, while Codie Rohrbaugh will drive CR7 Racing’s No. 9 in the truck’s fourth race attempt this year.
Reaume Brothers Racing will have two trucks at Charlotte, with Josh Reaume scheduled to drive either the No. 33 and Josh Bilicki in the No. 34.
