Hayley gears up for another new track as series heads to Pocono

Cameron Hayley, driver of the No. 13 Carolina Nut Co. Toyota Tundra, will make his 10th track debut of the 2015 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) season in Saturday afternoon's Pocono Mountains 150 at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway.

 

Hayley, who is currently sixth in the 2015 NCWTS driver point standings, is coming off his fifth top-10 finish of the season at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio. Saturday's 60-lap/150-mile race at the 2.5-mile Pocono Raceway ties Daytona International Speedway as the largest oval track the Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender has seen in his young career.

 

Saturday's Pocono Mountains 150 marks the sixth time the series has visited the "Tricky Triangle" since 2010. In five races at the Long Pond, Pa. track there have been five different winners, including first-time NCWTS winner, Joey Coulter (2012).  Hayley looks to add his name to an already impressive list of winners that includes defending NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion, Kevin Harvick. A feat, no other ThorSport Racing driver has accomplished since the series began racing at the 2.5-mile track in 2010.

 

Sounding off-Cameron Hayley:

"I'll be making my debut at Pocono this weekend, so I don't know much about it other than it's a triangle. I've watched a few races from there already, and the thing I'm gathering from it is, it drives pretty much like a road course. It's three totally different corners, and you really can't drive it like an oval. It's definitely a mix breed between a road course and an oval."
