Ready for Texas...The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) is back in action this weekend in Fort Worth, Texas for the WinStar World Casino & Resort 400 at Texas Motor Speedway. Four-Time NCWTS champion Ron Hornaday Jr. will make his 23rd-career start at the 1.5-mile oval as he looks to capture his fourth-career win in the Lone Star State. In his previous 22 starts at Texas, Hornaday has scored three wins, seven top fives, 12 top 10s and led 681 laps, with an average finish of 12.4.
Welcome Ruud...Ruud is on board the No. 30 for the first time in 2014. The Ruud brand has been an innovative, high-quality brand that has been a trusted, reliable performer for over 100 years. Ruud is proud to associate its winning legacy with four-time NASCAR Champion Ron Hornaday, whose record of leadership and durability as a driver for 17 years is only surpassed by a lifetime of fellowship and countless contributions to community.
This Week's Silverado...The No. 30 Ruud team will unload chassis TSM-220 for this weekend's race at Texas. TSM-220 was last on track in May of this year at Kansas Speedway where Hornaday brought home an eighth-place finish. TSM-220 was also on track at Texas Motor Speedway a year ago when Jeb Burton was able to take it to victory lane in his first-career win.
Watch and Listen...The WinStar World Casino & Resort 400 can be seen live on Friday, June 6 on FOX Sports 1. Race coverage begins at 8:30 p.m. EDT, and the event can also be heard live on PRN Radio as well as SiriusXM Radio, Channel 90.
Previous Race Recap...Hornaday began the Lucas Oil 200 in the eighth position, and as the race began, the NCWTS veteran quickly settled into the top 15. When the field made their first pitstop, Hornaday was scored in the 16th position. After the changes were made to Hornaday's truck, he was able to work his way up to the 12th spot. Hornaday survived a string of cautions as the race continued, ultimately finishing the race in the 11th position.
Ron Hornaday Jr. on Racing at Texas Motor Speedway:
"Texas is one of my favorite race tracks on the schedule. We've been fortunate enough to have a lot of success at this track in the past and I always like seeing Texas come up on the schedule. We had a decent run at Dover last weekend, but I'd like to get this No. 30 Ruud truck and everyone at Turner Scott Motorsports to victory lane. I think we have a great chance of accomplishing that this weekend."
