Taylor Malsam NCWTS Preview: Texas Motor Speedway I

Friday Night Lights...Making his third NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) start of the season with Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM), Tayler Malsam hopes that his experience at Texas Motor Speedway, along with crew chief Mike Hillman Jr.'s previous victory at the 1.5-mile track, will put the No. 32 Outerwall Chevrolet one step ahead of the rest of the field in Friday night's race. Following a tough run at Charlotte Motor Speedway three weeks ago, Malsam is on a mission for redemption this weekend at the No Limits track.


This Week's Silverado...As the winning crew chief of last year's event, Mike Hillman Jr. and the No. 32 TSM team will unload a familiar chassis this weekend in the Lone Star State. TSM-602 helped Malsam score a top-five finish in his return to the NCWTS this year at Kansas Speedway and was well known on the NCWTS circuit last year, having claimed two pole awards along with two top-10 finishes in just four starts.


Let's Go...This week at Texas Motor Speedway, the No. 32 will be sporting the colors of Outerwall for the third of 12 races this year. As the company that brought consumers Redbox® entertainment, Coinstar® money services, and ecoATM® electronics recycling kiosks, Outerwall is leading the next generation of automated retail.With more than 20 years of experience, the company mission is to create a better everyday by delivering breakthrough kiosk experiences that delight consumers and generate revenue for retailers.


Previous Race Recap...The last time Malsam was behind the wheel of the No. 32 Outerwall Chevy was at Charlotte Motor Speedway, where he and his TSM team had their night cut short when two competitors made contact, sending the No. 32 truck into the inside retaining wall where it suffered severe damage. The TSM team worked quickly to make essential repairs to the rear of the truck and sent Malsam back out to make three laps under caution before being relegated to a 25th-place finish.

The WinStar World Casino & Resort 400K can be seen live on Friday, June 6 beginning at 8:30 p.m. EDT on FOX Sports 1. The race can also be heard live on MRN Radio as well as SiriusXM Satellite Radio, channel 90.


Tayler Malsam on Racing at Texas Motor Speedway:

"I'm really excited to race the No. 32 truck again this weekend in Texas. We got involved in a pretty big mess last time I was behind the wheel in Charlotte, so I'm definitely ready to come back with a vengeance this time around. I have a lot of confidence in Mike Hillman Jr. at this track, and I think we've got what it takes to be up front at the end of the night. I know this Turner Scott Motorsports team has worked hard to get our truck in perfect condition for this weekend. I'd like nothing more than to get Hillman and TSM a back-to-back win in this event."
