NCWTS: WinStar World Casino & Resort 400 Preview

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will join the Verizon IndyCar Series at the Texas Motor Speedway for the 19th annual WinStar World Casino & Resort 400. The race will serve as the seventh stop on the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series tour of the season. Matt Crafton will come into the race as the defending race winner.

The entry list features 30 drivers and will all make the race. Some of the fresh faces include Adam Edwards, Donnie Neuenberger, Michael Affarano, Joe Nemechek, Austin Theriault, Brandon Jones, Ryan Ellis, Tyler Tanner, Jordan Anderson and Timmy Hill.

Jennifer Jo Cobb will make a milestone start on Friday at the 1.5-mile Texas Motor Speedway. Cobb will make her 100th NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start since her debut in 2008 at the Kansas Speedway. Her best finish came in her one and only top 10 finish at the Daytona International Speedway where she brought home a sixth-place run in 2011.

Matt Crafton comes into the weekend as one of the big bullets to watch throughout the 250-mile event. Crafton continues his tear in the series, earning two victories, five top five and six top 10 finishes. The California native continues to lead the series standings by 11 points over Tyler Reddick and is searching for his third consecutive championship.

Daniel Suarez continues to inch closer to his first career NASCAR national series victory. Suarez came home in the runner-up spot last weekend at Dover and brought home five top-10 finishes in each of his five starts. If Suarez is able to take the checkered flag, he will become the first driver from Mexico to score a win in the top three national series.

You can catch the WinStar World Casino & Resort 400 live on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Sports Go at 9:00 p.m. ET. on Friday. The Motor Racing Network will carry the live radio broadcast.
