Brian Ickler Gets Caught in the "Big One" in First NASCAR Camping World Series Start at Daytona
Brian Ickler rolled off 21st in his first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at Daytona International Speedway. From the drop of the green flag, Ickler's No. 7 Bullet Liner Toyota Tundra was a well-balanced machine that was not in need of any adjustments. He reported to crew chief Chris Carrier that the black Toyota Tundra felt good and that he was "riding around" in an effort to remain out of trouble in the 100-lap race. On lap 75, the "Big One" occurred and the Poway, Calif., native was collected in the multi-truck incident. The damage to the Tundra that had previously been driven to Victory Lane at Daytona Beach-based superspeedway was too severe to continue, and Ickler was relegated to a 33rd-place finish in the first event of the 2014 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season. The series is now entering a five-week hiatus before returning to action at Martinsville Speedway on March 29.
Start - 21 Finish - 33 Driver Points Position - 28 Laps Led - 0
Brian Ickler Quote:
"What a frustrating end to our night. We had such a great Bullet Liner Toyota Tundra. It was so well-balanced and we were just riding around and waiting until those final laps to make our move. I want to thank Bullet Liner for coming on board, and all the guys at Red Horse Racing for putting together such a great truck. It's going to be hard to sit still for five weeks. I am ready to climb back in the No. 7 Toyota Tundra right now."
