NCWTS: Race Preview Homestead-Miami Speedway

This weekend the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series heads off to Homestead-Miami Speedway for the season finale. This weekend’s entry list features 38 drivers with many interesting faces. Cale Gale is the defending race winner.

The entry list includes Austin Dillon, J.J. Yeley, Nelson Piquet, Jr., Frank Kimmel, Ross Chastain, Spencer Gallagher, Jeff Agnew, Ben Kennedy, Cale Gale, Mason Mingus, Brad Riethmeyer, B.J. McLeod, D.J. Kennington, Travis Kvapil and Chad McCumbee.

Two drivers will go home following qualifying today afternoon. The 13 drivers that must get in on time include Austin Dillon, Jennifer Jo Cobb, Frank Kimmel, Spencer Gallagher, Jeff Agnew, Ben Kennedy, Cale Gale, Ron Hornaday, Chris Jones, Brad Riethmeyer, B.J. McLeod and Travis Kvapil.

Matt Crafton has pretty much locked up the drivers championship, but he still has to hold off Kyle Busch to earn ThorSport Racing a owner championship. With Kyle Busch Motorsports win last week at Phoenix, they have closed the owner point championship down to 23 points. To capture both, he will have to pull a 18th or better finish. Thorsport could become the first team to ever hold the points lead for the whole season.

"We're looking forward to taking the green flag and getting one of those championships out of the way," Crafton said. "But we're going to Homestead trying to win a race, no different than we've done any of the other 21 weeks this season. We're focused on that and if we do our jobs the owners' title will be where it belongs this season.

Jimmy Weller III will make his fifth start of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this evening in the No. 81 Toyota. Tonight will mark the teams 313th consecutive start in the series for SS Green Light Racing.

You can catch tonight’s NCWTS race at 7:30 p.m. Et. live on Fox Sports 1. The Motor Racing Network will provide the live radio coverage of the event. You can listen to MRN on many radio stations around the country. If not near an affiliate, you can listen on TuneIn App, MRN.com or on AudioNow by dialing 1-832-999-1717 on your phone.
