Harraka & Wauters Motorsports Keep Trucking Towards Kentucky
After a three week hiatus the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series is back to action at Kentucky Speedway for the running of the UNOH 225 race Thursday, June 28, 2012.
“The off weeks between Texas and Kentucky have been exactly what this team and I needed,” Paulie Harraka said. “We were able to spend some great time together in Milwaukee and have grown closer as a team. We’ve carefully evaluated where we are at and what we need to do moving forward, and are looking at the Kentucky as if it were the start of a whole new season. For that, I’m really excited.”
This will be Paulie Harraka’s first start at the 1.5-mile Sparta, Kentucky race track but not his first time at the Kentucky Speedway.
“I’ve tested cars at Kentucky before and know that the bumpy nature of the track will play a big factor in our weekend,” Harraka commented.
Team owner Richie Wauters, in his tenure as a crew chief, has never gone to victory lane but has had two top-five and four top-10 finishes in just seven starts at the intermediate sized racetrack. Wauters best finish was third-place position with Aric Almirola as the driver in 2010.
Race eight of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season is slated for Thursday, June 28, 2012 at 8:00 pm. SPEED will provide live televised coverage of qualifying beginning at 5:00pm with race coverage beginning at 7:30pm. MRN & Sirius Satellite Radio coverage begins at 7:15pm.
