Continuing to enhance his learning curve in his transition to NASCAR, Sports Car standout Max Tullman (@MaxTullman) returns to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) for Saturday afternoon’s Fr8Auctions 250 at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway with Young’s Motorsports.

One of three entries for the Mooresville, N.C.-based team, Tullman returns to the 2.66-mile superspeedway aboard the No. 20 Yurpal.com Chevrolet Silverado hoping to earn his first career top 10 in one of NASCAR’s top national divisions.

“I’m very thankful to have this opportunity to race at Talladega this weekend,” said Tullman, who finished sixth in the ARCA Racing Series race at Talladega in April.

“I appreciate the hard work and effort from the Young’s Motorsports team preparing the number 20 for the race.

I’m eager to get there and see what we can put together.”

For his third career Truck Series race, the team again welcomes Yurpal.com who has increased their commitment from the ARCA Series to NASCAR’s top-three stage.

Yurpal.com is the first and only online marketing place for the construction and building materials industry.

With Yurpal, you can quickly find the building materials and products you need, find local vendors, find local professionals, manage your customers, manage your sales volume, manage your deliveries and more from one easy-to-use platform.

With the release of their new features, Yurpal has created an all-inclusive digital community for the construction industry. And best of all, it's FREE!

Yurpal.com CEO Jon De Langis is enthusiastic about his company’s foray with Tullman and their return to Talladega.

“Talladega is the perfect venue to continue to promote our new platform and expand our relationship with Max for a Truck Series race at Talladega,” De Langis said. “We’ve seen great results with our relaunch and we believe that we can continue that upward trend with some exposure and a good finish on Saturday afternoon.”

In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Tullman’s No. 20 Chevrolet Silverado will support a pink-paint scheme – while offering the opportunity for cancer survivors to sign the hood of Tullman’s truck throughout the weekend at Talladega.

“Every October I look for ways to promote Breast Cancer Awareness month to the best of my ability and thanks to Jon and everyone at Yurpal.com, they’ve allowed us to do a cool paint scheme and allow all survivors of cancer to sign the truck prior to taking on the track. It’s a neat deal.”

Tullman and Young’s Motorsports will also use the 19th race of the Truck Series season to raise funds for Tullman’s Xfinity Series crew chief’s wife Robin Richert. She is the wife of longtime NASCAR crew chief Doug Richert was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 stomach cancer.

Robin’s Go Fund Me page will be displayed on the television panel of Tullman’s No. 20 Chevrolet where members of the racing community or fans can contribute their financial support by visiting their donation page.

“Robin is a very special and caring person. We are all wishing her a successful and speedy recovery,” sounded Tullman.

Tullman has high hopes for Talladega after he competed in the ARCA Racing Series event earlier this year with Mason Mitchell Motorsports in the No. 78 Yurpal.com Chevrolet where he qualified fifth, led five laps and finished a career-best sixth.

With the guidance of spotter Jason Jarrett, Tullman is hoping for a smooth Truck Series restrictor plate debut.

“I know that Saturday is going to be a lot harder than the ARCA race,” Tullman explained. “I also know that the Truck Series is at the beginning of their Playoffs and Saturday’s race is a cutoff race. I don’t plan to have an impact on the Playoffs, but we’re going to run our race and hope when the checkered flag nears, we’re at the front contending for a strong finish in my last Truck Series race of the season.”

Following Talladega, Tullman will close out his 2018 season at Kansas Speedway where he’ll return to the NASCAR Xfinity Series with his Tullman Walker Racing team for the Oct. 20 running of the Kansas Lottery 300.

With Young’s Motorsports, the Chester Springs, Pa. native has two prior starts at Chicagoland Speedway and Canadian Tire Motorsport Park respectively with a best result of 23rd in Joliet, Ill. in June.

The Fr8Auctions 250 (94 laps | 250.04 miles) is the 19th of 23 races on the 2018 NASCAR Camping World Truck schedule. Practice begins on Fri., Oct. 12 from 9:05 a.m. – 9:55 a.m., while final practice is set for 10:35 a.m. – 11:25 a.m. Qualifying is set for later in the day beginning at 4:35 p.m. The 32-truck field will take the green flag the next day, Sat. Oct. 13 shortly after 12:00 p.m. with live coverage on FOX, the Motor Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90). All times are local (Central).

With only five NASCAR CAMPING WORLD TRUCK SERIES races remaining in the 2018 season, teams head to Talladega Superspeedway this weekend for the most-anticipated race of the Playoffs. Saturday’s stop, live on FOX at 1:00 PM ET, serves as an elimination race, narrowing the field of championship contenders from eight to six to conclude the first round of the postseason.

Former MONSTER ENERGY NASCAR CUP SERIES champion Kevin Harvick returns to the FOX Sports booth Saturday as a race analyst, calling the action alongside Vince Welch and Michael Waltrip. Talladega marks Harvick’s third Truck Series race in the FOX Sports booth this season, in addition to the five NASCAR XFINITY SERIES races he called. Fellow former champion Kurt Busch is on deck for the Oct. 27 Truck Series race at Martinsville Speedway (live on FS1 at 1:00 PM ET), his maiden voyage as a race analyst.

Patrolling pit road on Saturday are Phil Parsons, Hermie Sadler and Kaitlyn Vincie. Pre-race coverage begins at 12:30 PM ET on FOX with NASCAR RACEDAY-NCWTS, hosted by John Roberts with analysis from two-time series champ Todd Bodine and Jeff Hammond. Weekend coverage begins Friday, Oct. 12, live on FS2 with opening practice.

NASCAR RACEDAY-NCWTS offers an intimate look at defending series champion Johnny Sauter’s home life. Todd Bodine and FOX Sports cameras followed Sauter home to Wisconsin recently during the long break in the racing schedule, going behind-the-scenes with him and his family. Additionally, FOX NASCAR reporter and animal rescue ambassador Jamie Little joins David and Todd Gilliland for a Birmingham Humane Society shelter event, adding to the number of shelter visits she makes on the NASCAR circuit in conjunction with Pedigree each year.

Already locked into the second round of the Playoffs by virtue of their wins at Canada and Las Vegas, respectively, are Justin Haley and Grant Enfinger. Sauter sits atop the point standings headed into Talladega, 17 points ahead of Noah Gragson.

Below are quotes from FOX NASCAR analysts Harvick and Parsons headed into the final restrictor-plate race of the year:

With Talladega serving as a Playoff elimination race, how would you describe the pressure on drivers hoping to advance, particularly the younger ones?

“I think it depends on where you are from a point position standpoint in the round from the cutoff line. No matter what your agenda is, there’s a lot of pressure because there’s so many things out of your control.”

--Kevin Harvick

“I cannot even begin to imagine the stress and lack of sleep these guys are going through.  Even Johnny Sauter, who has a big points lead, probably won’t rest easy until he gets through the first stage or grabs some stage points. I can’t fathom what is going through their minds.”

--Phil Parsons

On his advice at Talladega for drivers still not locked into the second round of the Playoffs:

“I think the way our points system is set up, you have to race aggressively to score as many stage points as possible. If you don’t score them, somebody else will, and that’s dangerous.”

--Kevin Harvick

On whether who makes the elimination cut and who doesn’t will go down to the finish line:

“We literally won’t know who advances to the second round of the Playoffs until they get to the start/finish line.  We saw that last year with the big wreck in turns 1 and 2.”

--Phil Parsons

On the odds of another first-time winner emerging at Talladega:

“I’d say better than average. Historically, we’ve seen people get their first win there – Parker Kligerman and Grant Enfinger immediately come to mind of those in the field. If I had to predict, I’d look at a Gilliland running for Kyle Busch Motorsports, although I won’t say which one (Todd or David). They obviously can work together, which I would think is the plan, so they should be in position. And at GMS Racing, maybe Spencer Gallagher. He has proven he can win there. He finished second last year and won the XFINITY race in the spring.”

--Phil Parsons (who scored his first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series win at Talladega in 1988)

On who is under the most pressure at Talladega:

“Sometimes the guys below the cut line have less pressure on them than the guys above the cut line. Matt Crafton, a two-time champ who has made the Playoffs the last two years, probably is feeling a lot of pressure to make it.”

--Phil Parsons

On the heels of his first top-10 finish of the season last month at Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) veteran Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) heads to Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway for Saturday’s Fr8Auctions 250, hunting for his first career victory.

It’s no secret that the progression and speed of Self aboard his No. 22 GO TEXAN | AM Technical Solutions Chevrolet Silverado for Niece Motorsports has been commendable. In 18 races, Self has gone from 22nd to 14th in points, with a season-high ninth-place finish at Las Vegas and carrying nine top-15s and 15 top-20 finishes overall.

While out of the Playoff picture in the series’ final restrictor plate race of the season, Self is still hoping to make noise with his team in his third start at the 2.66-mile superspeedway.

“I’m really looking forward to going to Talladega this weekend,” said Self, a native of Austin, Texas. “I really enjoy the fundamentals of restrictor plate racing and I’ve had relatively good success there and hope to build on that on Saturday.

“The mojo around the shop has been good the last couple of weeks. We needed that top-10 at Las Vegas. We’ve been working hard over the last couple of months and it was awesome to have a solid night at the track and have a result that gives us something to build on for these final five races.”

Self is no stranger to superspeedway success.

In 2017 at Daytona International Speedway, Self bounced back from an early-race incident and drafted his way back inside the top-10 in the closing laps. When chaos erupted on the backstretch, Self emerged unscathed and finished second, his career-best finish in 58 starts.

The 22-year-old Self knows that when push comes to shove, he could find himself in a similar situation Saturday.

“Plate racing is so unpredictable,” he said. “If you can keep the fenders on the truck, you have a shot. We proved that at Daytona and we’re ready to prove that again. It’s going to be a crazy race. Everyone wants to win Talladega. It’s a cutoff race for the Playoffs and it will be one of the strongest fields of the year.

“We just have to mind our manners – let the race play out and be ready to capitalize when the opportunity allows. It would be very cool to put the Niece Motorsports team in Victory Lane.”

For Talladega and Martinsville, Self and his Niece Motorsports team will support Dwarfism Awareness month. Since 2009, Little People of America (LPA) has been recognizing October as Dwarfism Awareness Month with the intention of raising positive awareness around dwarfism, addressing common misconceptions and increasing opportunities for people with dwarfism around the country.

Abel Greene, a relative of Self is just 2 years old and was diagnosed with Achondroplasia, a type of Dwarfism. Greene’s parents Amanda and Adam are both of average height with no history of any type of Dwarfism on either side of the family.

Recently, Abel visited the Niece Motorsports shop, where he was given an exclusive tour as well as some one-on-one time with Self and teammate Justin Fontaine. The team is hopeful the family will be their guests at Martinsville Speedway at the end of the month.

“Everyone at Niece is proud to support Dwarfism Awareness Month,” sounded Self. “October is traditionally known for Breast Cancer Awareness month and we’re huge advocates of that, but it’s important for us to remember the others too. At Talladega and Martinsville, we look forward to educating others on Dwarfism Awareness Month and everything the community has to offer.”

After 18 races, Self sits 14th in the series’ standings. He carries an average finish of 16.6 entering Talladega.    

Like last year, the Texas Department of Agriculture’s GO TEXAN program and AM Technical Solutions will also support Self in his 59th career start.

GO TEXAN represents Texas agri-business on state, national and international levels by building recognition with the GO TEXAN mark.

Along with its signature mark in the shape of Texas, GO TEXAN celebrates, promotes and supports the business savvy and plainspoken grit Texas agriculture is known throughout the world.

Don’t mess with Texas, CForce Bottling Company, Flying Circle and Kreuz Market will serve as associate partners in the 19th race of the year.

In 58 NCWTS races, the 2015 ARCA Racing Series Rookie of the Year has one top-five (second at Daytona 2017) and four top-10 finishes. The Texan maintains an average finish of 18.2 during his three years of competition.

With just five races remaining on the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) schedule, and planning to step away from competition at the end of the season, Niece Motorsports rookie Justin Fontaine heads to Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway for Saturday afternoon’s Fr8Auctions 250 prepared to leave his mark.

Fontaine opened up his rookie season on the tour with a top-10 finish at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in February, and while the Asheville, N.C.-native went to school with the dos and don’ts of speedway racing – he is hoping to showcase what he learned and deliver his third top-10 finish of the season.

“It seems forever since we’ve been racing,” Fontaine said with a smile. “I’m looking forward to getting to do some superspeedway racing. My Niece Motorsports team has been working hard for the past month or so on our No. 45 ProMATIC Automation Chevrolet and I look forward to seeing what we can do during the race on Saturday afternoon.”

Fontaine also touched on his announcement following Las Vegas, where he plans to step away from competition in November.

“The last couple of weeks have been emotional that’s for sure,” he added. “Thankfully, I’ve had a lot of support from my family, friends and most of all my team. We’ve still got plenty of work to do before the season ends at Homestead and it begins this week at Talladega.”

The 20-year-old doesn’t have particularly a lot of drafting experience, especially when it comes to the Truck Series, but he has stayed focused and used the available resources to him to help prepare for his superspeedway debut at the 2.66-mile superspeedway.

“I’ve never been to Talladega,” explained Fontaine. “I was supposed to run the ARCA race there – but when I got hurt at Daytona, Talladega was no longer an option, so I’ve only had the ARCA and Truck Series races at Daytona to get myself accustomed to plate racing.

“It’s a mental game for sure and I’ve been doing everything I can with pictures and video to help me get focused and prepared. The trucks can be a handful compared to an ARCA car, but I think that produces better racing for the competitors and the fans too.”

With strict goals for the final stretch of Truck Series competition over the next six weeks, Fontaine believes it’s important for him to be running at the finish from now until Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway next month. To accomplish those goals, he knows he must first finish.

“In order to have an opportunity for a good finish, you have to be running,” added Fontaine. “That’s something I wish we could have done a little more. I think we’ve been doing a better job of it lately, but these final five races – it’s my goal to go out there and see if we can competitively finish in the top-15 and hope for a couple more top-10s too.”

Realizing the Truck Series Playoffs is underway, Fontaine doesn’t plan to interfere with the players, but says it’s important for the non-Playoff teams and drivers to shine in the spotlight too.

“I have a lot of respect from the competition, especially when it comes to the Playoffs,” he sounded. “I’m going to be respectful on Saturday. Make the right moves with the right help and remember who I’m racing around. The last thing I want to do is put us in an awkward position, where we could have an effect on who makes it to the next round or not.

“On the flip side, when push comes to shove, if we’re near the front and have the opportunity to put our team and partners up front – we’re going to do that. That’s what is expected of us. I definitely think you can be respectful to your competition but leave your marks too.”

After 18 races, Fontaine sits 15th in the series’ standings. He carries an average finish of 19.7 entering Talladega. He earned a career-best ninth-place result at Las Vegas in March.

In addition to a full-time NASCAR driver, Fontaine just started his sophomore year as a student at the University of North Carolina (Charlotte), where he is pursuing a political science degree.

After starting the year behind the wheel of the No. 15 Chevrolet Silverado for Premium Motorsports, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) rookie Robby Lyons has joined Reaume Bros. Racing aboard the No. 33 Sunwest Construction Chevrolet in a collaborative effort with Bruce Cook and Chad Finley Racing (CFR) for Saturday’s Fr8Auctions 250 at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway.

A native of Seminole, Fla., Lyons has competed in seven Truck Series races this season, finishing all but one. In his Daytona debut, he qualified 25th but progressively drafted forward and avoided the late chaos to earn a season-high 13th place finish, a second-best result in nine overall starts.

“I couldn’t be more excited to get back in a truck, especially at Talladega,” said Robby Lyons. “This race track means a lot to both me and my family. Back in 2005, we attended the spring Xfinity and Cup races at Talladega and the next day, my life would change forever.

“I was in a scary motorcross accident that left the doctors wondering whether I’d even walk again. Through sheer determination, a little hard headedness and countless prayers from friends, family and the racing community, I was able to make a full recovery and prove the doctors wrong.

“I am so happy to get to race at Talladega, especially knowing the deep personal impact this place has had on me.”

Knowing what he learned in his superspeedway debut at the “World Center of Racing” in Feb., the Floridian hopes to showcase his restrictor plate skills once again and contend for his first career top-10 finish.

“I’m confident I’ll be taking the No. 33 Sunwest Construction Chevrolet Silverado to the front thanks to the hard work and preparation by Bruce Cook and my whole team. I also want to thank Josh Reaume and everyone at Reaume Brothers Racing for giving us a chance to go racing and chase a trophy.

“The truck is fast, and I cannot wait to get down to Talladega and give it all we have.”

Lyons is expected to compete in at least one more Truck Series race this season following Talladega with an official announcement expected in the coming weeks.”

Josh Reaume, co-owner of Reaume Bros. Racing and a Truck Series competitor says his organization is thrilled to have Lyons drive their No. 33 Chevrolet this weekend and hope his family-owned team can earn some time in the spotlight.

“We’re thrilled to be working with Robby this weekend! He has worked very hard to put himself in a position to succeed at Talladega,” said Reaume. “We are looking forward to getting back on track after a three-week break and can’t wait to watch Robby push his way to the front.”

In nine career Truck Series races, Lyons has earned a best-finish of 12th at ISM Raceway (Phoenix) in Nov. 2017, while also qualifying a career-best 20th in the same event. In 2018, the 29-year-old has finished a season-high 13th at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway.

Follow Robby Lyons on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates throughout the weekend.

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) will be back in action this weekend after a three week hiatus. Bo LeMastus and the No. 54 Toyota Tundra will have a striking new look at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway as DGR-Crosley welcomes Fred's onboard for the Fr8Auctions 250.
 
Saturday's race at the 2.66-mile track in Alabama will mark LeMastus' 11th NCWTS start for the team he co-owns with David Gilliland, and his fourth start on a track greater than two-miles in length. Although LeMastus will be making his first NCWTS start at the famed Talladega Superspeedway, the ARCA Racing Series veteran brings a wealth of Superspeedway racing experience to the No. 54 team. LeMastus has five-career ARCA Racing Series starts at Talladega where he has collected two top-10 finishes. In his most recent start there earlier this spring, LeMastus qualified sixth and was on-pace to record a finish inside the top-10 before he was caught up in an accident on the last lap of the competition. 
 
LeMastus will not be the only one making his first NCWTS start at Talladega. His business partner Gilliland will also be competing in the Truck Series for the first time at Talladega Superspeedway. Gilliland is set to race the No. 51 entry for Kyle Busch Motorsports. This will mark the first time that LeMastus and Gilliland will compete against each other on track. 
 
The Fr8Auctions 250 will be broadcast on FOX Saturday, October 13, at 1:00 p.m., ET.

NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) winner Ross Chastain will join Niece Motorsports for the second time this season, piloting the No. 38 Niece Equipment Chevrolet Silverado at Texas Motor Speedway in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) event on Friday, November 2.

In August, Chastain made his first start with Niece Motorsports at Bristol Motor Speedway.  The veteran racer turned in a solid performance in the No. 38 Chevrolet, qualifying 10th and finishing the night in 12th.

“I’m really looking forward to working with this Niece Motorsports team again,” said Chastain.  “I always have a lot of fun in the Truck Series and am excited to come back and race here any chance I get.  Texas is a big deal for team owner Al Niece, but I’m confident that we can put on a strong performance in November.”

The 2018 season has been a busy one for Chastain, who has competed in all three of NASCAR’s major series.  To date, Chastain has made 28 starts in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, 29 starts in the NXS, and five starts in the NCWTS this season.

In September, Chastain broke into the Winner’s Circle in the NXS, after putting on a dominating performance at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, winning each stage of the race and leading 180 of 200 laps.

“We’ve seen what Ross is capable of this year, and I’m thrilled to have him behind the wheel of one of our trucks again,” said team owner Al Niece.  “Ross gives 100% every single lap he’s on the track, and that’s something that our team really appreciates.”

Niece Motorsports Technical Director Cody Efaw will serve as Chastain’s crew chief for the event.

The NCWTS takes the green flag at Texas Motor Speedway for the JAG Metals 350 on Friday, Nov. 2 at 8:30 p.m. ET, broadcast live on FoxSports 1, MRN Radio and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio Channel 90.

“I am looking forward to getting back behind the wheel of the No. 30 Strutmasters.com Toyota at Talladega,” stated Lagasse, Jr. “Restrictor plate racing has become one of my favorite types of racing and I am expecting great things this weekend. There has been a lot of work in preparing for this race and I want to get everyone at On Point Motorsports the finish they deserve.”
 
Lagasse, Jr. has become known as a speedway specialist and that is very evident by his four-consecutive top-10 finishes in NASCAR Camping World Truck Series restrictor plate races. Talladega will mark his 30th career start in the Camping World Truck Series and his 98th career start in NASCAR’s top divisions. 
 
“Strutmasters.com is honored to sponsor On Point Motorsports and Scott Lagasse, Jr. in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event at Talladega Superspeedway,” said Chip Lofton, Strustmasters.com founder. “As a company we are heavily involved in motorsports and this seemed like a great fit for us to have our name on the No. 30 Toyota Tundra.”

In respect to the news that was published last week, I wanted to thank you all for your understanding in light of the situation, and continued support of my character.

We have been cooperating with the investigation through counsel since I was notified about there being a potential warrant for my arrest while we were racing in Las Vegas.

My attorney has stayed in constant contact with the Rowan County District Attorney handling the case to reach a resolution, which has resulted in charges being dropped and a voluntary dismissal being filed earlier this morning without the need of a formal arrest. The race truck in question was delivered earlier this week to a location desired by the Rowan County Sheriffs Department. I continue to maintain my innocence in this matter, and the fact that I bought the race truck in good faith with a bill of sale, unbeknown of its history.

This has been quite a humbling lesson in being a new team owner, and the importance of discerning who you do business with. I take great honor in representing to the best of my ability my fans, partners, and family; and am grateful for your grace, support, and prayers through this all.

Nine months ago when we put into action the idea and dream of starting up our own team to compete, the main principle was, and is, to have faith, respect, and integrity serve as the pillar to every action and decision that is made with ownership. My life verse has been, and will continue to be Proverbs 3: 5-6. I take great hope in knowing that God allows everything in life to happen for a reason, and will apply what God has taught me through this as motivation to keep my relationship with Him first in everything that we do.
