Joey Coulter Hopes dirt track experience will help him "soil" the competition
Joey Coulter, driver of the No. 18 Darrell Gwynn Foundation Toyota Tundra, will make history on Wednesday night when the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) makes its debut on dirt in The CarCash Mudsummer Classic presented by CNBC Prime's the Profit at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Oh. Coulter, who is among the 20 Truck Series regulars with a guaranteed starting position for the much-anticipated event, isn't a dirt track novice but may have a slight advantage on the field for the historic event.
While a majority of the Truck Series regulars have little to no experience on dirt, and the dirt-track ringers have little to no experience in a truck, Coulter, has 56 NCWTS starts since 2010 and has been getting down and dirty in the dirt for more than four years now. Recently, he has been running his own Dirt Super Late Model every chance he gets, making 14 starts on dirt since 2009, including a win behind the wheel of a Pro Dirt Late Model at Volunteer Speedway in Bulls Gap, TN. Coulter is ready to put his knowledge of dirt and his experience in the Truck Series to work for his Kyle Busch Motorsports team and "soil" the competition in the historic event.
