Tearing Apart the Trucks: Series Debut at Iowa Speedway

After an exciting debut at Chicagoland Speedway last weekend, the Camping Word Truck Series doesn't have to travel far to make its second debut at a new track in as many weeks. Saturday night, Iowa Speedway will host its first ever Camping World Truck Series race. The Nationwide Series visited the 0.875 mile track for the first time last month. They put on a wild race, and we can only expect the same from the Truck Series. Despite the fact that clean air allowed the leader to pull away last weekend at Chicagoland Speedway, there was great racing back in the pack.

Nationwide Series Breakdown: 2008 Kroger On Track For The Cure 250 at Memphis

*In a Nutshell:* On Lap 29, a handful of drivers came in for fresh tires and adjustments at Memphis ... and it turns out that made all the difference. A caution on Lap 126 after over 90 laps of green flag racing left less than 10 cars on the lead lap, including Carl Edwards, whose No. 60 Ford was the class of the field. Edwards was never seriously challenged for the lead throughout the rest of the race despite multiple late race cautions and made coming from the back of the pack look easy, scoring a relatively easy victory. Defending race winner David Reutimann got his No. 99 Toyota to second with a few laps to go, but he refused to use the bump and run to move Edwards out of the way, a decision Reutimann later questioned himself for making. The race’s ending was highlighted with fireworks on pit road.
