NCWTS: Talladega Weekend Preview

This weekend the tough trucks will take it to the high banks of the Talladega Superspeedway for the eighth annual Fred’s 250. The entry list currently features a total of 38 drivers to qualify for the event. Parker Kligerman is the defending race winner of the event.

The many fresh faces include, Timmy Hill, Chris Cockrum, Parker Kligerman, Mason Mingus, Danny Efland, Kyle Busch, Scott Stenzel, Caleb Holman, Sean Corr, and Chris Fontaine.

Thirteen drivers will have to lock themselves into the field, since two will go home after qualifying. Those drivers include, Timmy Hill, Justin Lofton, Jennifer Jo Cobb, Parker Kligerman, Jeff Agnew, Mason Mingus, Danny Efland, Scott Stenzel, Clay Greenfield, Caleb Holman, Sean Corr, Chris Fontaine, and Chris Jones.

Matt Crafton finished outside the top-10 for the first time this season at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway where he finished in the 11th position. Crafton however, was able to keep his lengthy points lead of 41 going into the final races left this season. Crafton said he doesn’t care where the points are at, he just wants to go out to win races. James Buescher’s two race wins since August, helped him move into second in the standings behind Crafton.

Mason Mingus will make his NCWTS debut this weekend in the No. 35 811 Call Before You Dig Chevrolet. In 34 career ARCA Racing starts, he has earned five top-five and 25 top-10 finishes. He also closed out the 2013 season earning two poles during the season.

Parker Kligerman will make a return to the series to drive the No. 20 BRG Motorsports Toyota. Kligerman has not made a start in the series since last season. He goes into this weekend looking to capture his second career NASCAR win.
