Who’s in the headline As Martin Truex Jr. did last year en route to his first championship, Kevin Harvick has a firm grip on what it takes to go fast at mile-and-a-half tracks and is letting the rest of the garage know he has no intention of letting them come play in his sandbox. Harvick …

Tearing Apart the Trucks: Pit-Road Rules Save Money – Are They Worth the Savings?

As the Camping World Truck Series rolls into Memphis Motorsports Park for another weekend of great racing, I find myself looking back at the major rule change for the series this season.

5 Points to Ponder: NASCAR Notes From The Week

A solid run for Circle Bar Racing on paper in Friday’s 200-mile race at Lowe’s didn’t necessarily translate to harmony across the team after the race. Battling for the 11th position coming off turn 4 on the final lap, rookie James Buescher got into the door of teammate Rick Crawford and continued to shove him down the track, eventually knocking him into the grass at the stripe. Crawford was not happy with the phenom, offering a few choice words for the driver of the No. 10 who also participates in a monthly driver diary for Frontstretch.

Tearing Apart the Trucks: News Around the Series

After the longest break on the 2009 schedule, the Camping World Truck Series returns to the track this weekend at Kansas Speedway. There are 37 trucks listed on the entry list, and despite preseason fears of short fields, this will be the fifth consecutive full field this season. Last season the Truck Series saw short fields in their second and third races. Before the trucks hit the track, I want to take a little time to recap the news around the series over the last couple weeks.

Tracking the Trucks: 2009 American Commercial Lines 200 at Atlanta

The Big 6: Questions Answered After the 2009 Kobalt Tools 500 at Atlanta

It’s no small feat to finish in the top 10 in a NASCAR Sprint Cup race. But to do it less than 24 hours after being rushed to the hospital for a painful kidney stone is even tougher. Yet that’s exactly what Martin Truex Jr. did. Unsure late Saturday if he’d be able to race at all, Truex did pass the stone (an extremely painful process by all counts) and took the green flag. He also battled battery issues during the race but managed a solid 10th-place finish.

Tearing Apart the Trucks: AMS, Matt Crafton & Rick Crawford Celebrate Milestones

Rick Crawford Hopes to End Winless Drought Tonight in Daytona

You can’t fault Rick Crawford for being anxious to start tonight’s NextEra Energy Resources 250. After all, Crawford hasn’t won a Camping World Truck Series race in over two years, has only been behind the wheel for two practice sessions since the 2008 season finale at Homestead and is at the track where he has accumulated the most points of any driver over the past six seasons. While most fans associate Crawford with Daytona for his three-wide win in 2003, he has consistently been one of the series’ strongest drivers at the 2.5-mile track, scoring six top 10s in nine starts.
