Cameron Hayley, driver of the No. 13 Cabinets by Hayley Toyota Tundra, will make his second track debut of 2015 in Saturday's Hyundai Construction Equipment 200 at Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway (AMS).
The South Georgia track, which was a staple of the series for eight years prior to 2012, has been off the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) schedule for the last two years. In fact, almost half of the driver's entered in the 33 truck field will also be making their NCWTS debut on the tough, fast, and rough, 1.54-mile quad oval. Of the 33 driver's entered, 16 of those 31 driver's named have no experience in the NCWTS at AMS, evening out the playing field for the ThorSport Racing driver.
Also, when surveying the competition, you can't forget about Hayley's experience on the pit box. Jeff Hensley is in his 12th year as a crew chief in the NCWTS and has 12 starts to his credit at AMS including three poles, and two wins, an advantage for the 18-year-old Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender, and his No. 13 ThorSport Racing team.
Sounding off - Cameron Hayley:
"I've never been to Atlanta (Motor Speedway), but I've heard it's a tough track. I've also heard it's a lot of fun to drive, so I'm looking forward to the challenge this weekend. Since the series hasn't raced there in two years, I think there will be a lot of drivers that have never been there, and that should even out the competition a little bit. We've got almost three hours of practice on Thursday so we can almost use that as a test session to get me up to speed. My crew chief, Jeff Hensley, and my teammates, Matt (Crafton) and Johnny (Sauter) have a lot of experience there, so I'm sure I'll lean on them for help."
