The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will return to one of the fastest tracks on the NASCAR circuit - Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway (AMS) - for the 14th annual Hyundai Construction Equipment 200 on Saturday, Feb. 28. The 130 lap race will mark the first time the series has visited the 1.54-mile quad oval since 2012.
Johnny Sauter, driver of the No. 98 Nextant Aerospace/Curb Records Toyota Tundra will make his fifth career start in "Hotlanta," and the Necedah, Wisc. native is looking for his first top-five finish at the South Georgia track. For a veteran driver that finishes in the top-five 36.6 percent of the time, a solid run with a proven chassis, is not out of question for the ThorSport Racing driver.
Sounding Off - Johnny Sauter:
"Atlanta is a tough one for me. It's a fun place, no question about it. The speeds will fall off from sticker tires to 20 laps into a run, which will be pretty big. Everyone will be slipping and sliding - running the bottom, middle and top - and it will be fun. I'm glad we have another race back-to-back this year with Daytona and Atlanta. It will keep the momentum going for the entire team."
