Joey Coulter: Cowboy Hats Make Great Birthday Presents

Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, known as the "No Limit's Wild Asphalt Circus," is the host of the seventh race on the 2013 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) schedule. The fast mile-and-a-half track is not only the home to the Toyota Tundra, but home to some impressive stats for Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM) driver Joey Coulter. The Toyota Tundra driver two-steps into the "Lone Star State" with the highest average finish (5.2) of any driver in the field over the last four NCWTS races and is also the only driver to finish in the top 10 in each of the last four races. In a state where horses run free, Coulter hopes that his horsepower will take him to victory lane in the 31st running of the WinStar World Casino 400k - a feat that would be sure to make his 23rd birthday on Saturday, June 8 a Texas-size memory.


The Truck Series has visited TMS twice a year since 1999 after making its debut in 1997. Coulter, who has four-career starts at the Fort Worth, Texas track, seems to always make strides in the championship point standings following the June race on the NCWTS schedule. In 2011 Coulter entered the June Texas race 11th in the driver point standings and following the 168-lap event he was ninth. In 2012, Coulter entered the June Truck Series race at TMS 10th in the championship point standings and following the 167-lap event he was eighth. Although the third-year Truck Series driver made a big swing in points following his eight-place finish at Dover (Del.) International Speedway last week, another solid top-10 finish under the lights is just what the 18 team needs to get their season back on track.
