Hayley heads to Charlotte with momentum on his side

Coming off a career-best fifth-place finish at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, KS last weekend, Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender Cameron Hayley jumped up three positions in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) driver point standings, propelling himself to fifth, just four races into the 2015 season.


The NCWTS is heading to the 1.5-mile quad oval of Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway (CMS) for Friday night's NC Education Lottery 200. Hayley, who will be making his fifth track debut of the season, will do so with a new sponsor on board his No. 13 Toyota Tundra. Locally owned Carolina Nut Co., which specializes in unique flavored nuts, flavored peanuts, spicy nuts and candied nuts, will make its 2015 ThorSport Racing debut with the rookie driver in the 134-lap event.


Hayley, who is turning heads in his first season in the NCWTS, would like nothing more than to keep his success moving in the right direction, while dealing with the learning curve of his initial season in the series. To do so, the Canadian driver leans on his ThorSport Racing teammates, Matt Crafton and Johnny Sauter, as well as his veteran crew chief, Jeff Hensley to continue his upward swing.


As Hayley continues to improve with every race he's run this season, the ThorSport Racing driver is hoping to pilot his No. 13 Carolina Nut Co. Toyota Tundra to his first series win at CMS on Friday night. 

Sounding off - Cameron Hayley:

"Kansas was a truly amazing night for me. It was my first top-five finish and to be a Canadian and get a top-five in this series is unreal. Charlotte will be another track I'm seeing for the first time on Thursday for practice. It's the fourth mile-and-a-half track that I've ever run on, so it will be a good learning opportunity for us and a good opportunity for us to run well."
