Just two more weekends off until the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series returns to action at Kansas Speedway for the Playoffs Round of 8 finale, the Kansas Lottery 200 on Sept. 9 (7:30 p.m. ET on FS1, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR). But before the engines fire back up, let’s take a look at how the competition has fared this season.
As the Round of 10 moves forward in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoffs, the 0.75-mile D-shaped oval of Richmond Raceway awaits the drivers for some Saturday night short track racing with the Worldwide Express 250 for Carrier Appreciation on August 13th at 8 p.m. ET on FS1, MRN, and Sirius XM NASCAR Radio.
Following a thrilling race on the multi-elevational Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course two weeks ago, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series took last weekend off to prepare for the regular season finale this weekend at Pocono Raceway – the CRC Brakleen 150 on Saturday, July 23 at noon ET on FOX, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Channel 90) – and is ready to crown the Regular Season Champion and set the 10-driver Playoff field.
The Triple Truck Challenge was introduced in 2019, as a three-race program that provides drivers in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series an opportunity to win up to $500,000 in bonus money.
After the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series took last weekend off, the series jumps back into action this week at Kansas Speedway for the Wise Power 200 (Saturday, May 1, at 7:30 p.m. ET on FS1, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).
One would think Ty Gibbs is the ARCA Menards Series driver most looking forward to Saturday’s Dutch Boy 150 at Kansas Speedway (1:30 p.m. ET, FS1). The fourth race of the 2021 season represents a chance for the 18-year-old Joe Gibbs Racing driver to rebound from his disappointing finish last week at Talladega. Yet one would be hard-pressed to find a driver heading to Kansas City with a bigger smile on his or her face than that of Corey Heim.
At a track like Talladega Superspeedway, the General Tire 200 was supposed to be unpredictable. ARCA Menards Series points leader Corey Heim said it himself: Even after he won the 2021 season-opener at Daytona International Speedway, Saturday’s race at another superspeedway that produces pack racing was a potential pitfall in his championship push.
TALLADEGA, Ala. — Over the last three decades, just one driver has won both the ARCA Menards Series race at Daytona International Speedway and the series’ event at Talladega Superspeedway in the same season. Thanks to Corey Heim on Saturday, make it two drivers.
MOORESVILLE, N.C. (April 21, 2021) – Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM) announced today that Corey Heim will make two starts behind the wheel of the organization’s No. 51 Tundra in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this season. The 18-year-old driver will make his series debut May 7 at Darlington (S.C.) Raceway with primary sponsorship from JBL, the authority in engineering superior sound. He will also compete in the Truck Series event Oct. 30 at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway with a yet to be named sponsor.
Conventional wisdom suggested the General Tire 150 at Phoenix Raceway would apply some heat to the early ARCA Menards Series championship race. Indeed, through two races in 2021, the winner of the season-opener at Daytona International Speedway, Corey Heim, has just a three-point lead in the standings over second-place Ty Gibbs after the latter won Friday’s 150-lap race in Avondale, Arizona.
