The Craftsman Truck Series race at Daytona is called the Chevrolet Silverado 250, yet Chevrolet has never visited Daytona’s victory lane in a Truck Series race.
The offseason is coming to an end and we are close to going back racing. Before we do, let’s talk about what to expect from the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series.
On August 20, 1994, NASCAR nearly lost Ernie Irvan to a horrific crash at Michigan. Irvan doesn’t remember the crash that day.
It took just two races of 2006 before JJ Yeley registered his first top-10 finish, coming home eighth at California Speedway in February.
David Stremme managed to break the top 15. He finished 11th at New Hampshire in July, then ended the year on a strong note with another 11th at Homestead.
Tony Raines managed to keep Bill Saunders, owner of the No. 96 car, high enough in owner points to guarantee the team would make the race each week.
Matt Kenseth led Carl Edwards to the checkered flag in the Ford 300 at Homestead to win his second straight race in the series to close out the season.
Mark Martin, making his final Truck Series start for Roush Racing, won his grand finale Friday night in the Ford 200 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
My eyes sit on the Craftsman Truck Series race. And though he has a 112-point cushion over Johnny Benson, Todd Bodine doesn’t have it officially in the bag yet.
Polesitter Johnny Benson went from first… to last… to first again, winning his fifth career Craftsman Truck Series race in the Casino Arizona 150 at Phoenix Friday night.
