Hayley hopes to make his new "Home State" of Ohio proud in his dirt debut

Cameron Hayley, driver of the No. 13 Cabinets by Hayley Toyota Tundra, will make his ninth track debut of the 2015 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) season in Wednesday night's 1-800-CarCash Mudsummer Classic at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio. Not only will the Sunoco Racing Rookie of the Year contender be making his debut at the historic, half-mile, high banked clay oval, Hayley will also be making his dirt debut in the unique three-segment, 150-lap event at the Tony Stewart-owned track.


Hayley, who is currently seventh in the 2015 NCWTS driver point standings, is coming off his fourth top-10 finish of the season at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, and is one of 15 drivers entered in the third annual event with no track experience in the series. In fact, the Canadian driver, who recently moved to Sandusky, Ohio, where his ThorSport Racing team is located, hopes to make his new "home state" proud of his dirt debut on Wednesday night.


"My goal is to learn as much as possible by adapting to the ever-changing track surface, and finish all the laps. If we can do that, I feel like we can manage a top-10 run, which is something we can all be proud of."


Sounding off-Cameron Hayley:

"I ran a sprint car once on dirt when I was 11-years-old, but I don't have any dirt experience. So, running at Eldora this week is definitely going to be a new learning experience for me. You can watch all the race tape in the world, but when it comes down to it, if you haven't driven it, you just don't know."
