Coulter hopes to hit the "Jackpot" in Friday night's N.C. Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte

When it comes to lucky numbers at Charlotte Motor Speedway (CMS), you better make sure to go "All In" on the No. 18 Darrell Gwynn Foundation Toyota Tundra of Joey Coulter. In three previous starts at the 1.5-mile oval, the No. 18 Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM) machine has claimed three top-five finishes including one pole and two wins. In fact, in 10 previous NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) starts at CMS, the No. 18 is the only Toyota Tundra that knows the way to victory lane. Therefore, driving for two-time race winner Kyle Busch, Coulter feels confident that his KBM team will supply him with the speed and handling he needs to hit the jackpot in Friday night's N.C. Education Lottery 200.


With finishes of 22nd, 15th, 13th and second, respectively, in the first four NCWTS events on the 2013 schedule, Coulter has improved his finishing position in each race and knows that his momentum coming off a season-best finish at Kansas will lead him straight to familiar territory with the No. 18 machine. A solid effort by the 22-year-old Miami Springs, Fla. native has allowed him to gain 12 positions in the NCWTS driver point standings since Daytona and currently sits comfortably inside the top-10 with 125 points; a mere 10 points behind fifth-place Ty Dillon and 37 points behind series point leader Matt Crafton. With only one goal in mind, to win KBM their first driver championship, Coulter knows a solid finish at CMS this weekend will keep him on track to "runnin' down his dream."


Making his third start at CMS this weekend, Coulter hopes to improve on his 2012 track-best finish of seventh and "scratch off" another "W" in the win column in the 11th Annual N.C. Education Lottery 200 at CMS.
