NCWTS: New Hampshire Motor Speedway Preview

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will head to the New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the 17th running of the UNOH 175. This marks the first time since 2011 that the series made a stop at the 1.06-mile track.

The entry list features a total of 30 drivers, which means nobody will fail to make the race. Some of the drivers on it, include: Caleb Roark, Cole Custer, BJ McLeod, Ray Black Jr., John Hunter Nemechek, Tyler Reddick, Gray Gaulding, Erik Jones, Ted Minor, JR Heffner and Brandon Brown.

When race at the Chicagoland Speedway ended, Matt Crafton found himself with the points lead by five over teammate, Johnny Sauter. Crafton, who led 14 laps last Saturday night, finished the event in the runner-up spot for the fourth time of the year. Sauter, which went into the event last weekend first in the standings, left the 1.5-mile oval with a 14th-place finish after starting from the pole. This weekend will be interesting to see which of these two will come out on-top. The No. 88 truck still leads the owner points standings by four points over the Kyle Busch Motorsports No. 51.

German Quiroga looks to leave the New Hampshire Motor Speedway with his first career win in the series. With the run at the Gateway Motorsports Park in June, and many drivers have said this track drives very similar, he very well potentially could. He also nearly captured the win at the Canadian Tire Motorsports Park but was beat by Ryan Blaney by 0.05 seconds, which was the second closest finish in the series.

Joe Nemechek has had some great memories at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway. In 1999, he drove to his first victory and made his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series debut there in 1992. Also in 1992, Nemechek took home a Nationwide Series victory. This weekend, the son, John Hunter Nemechek, will look to score his first career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victory. The last time out at the Canadian Motorsports Park he finished a career low of 25th.

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race will be televised live on FOX Sports 1 Saturday at 1:00 p.m. Et. The live radio coverage of the race will be provided by the Motor Racing Network.
