Tyler Malsam NCWTS Preview: Michigan International Speedway
Returning with a Mission...After a lengthy break from the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS), Tayler Malsam returns to the No. 32 Outerwall Chevrolet for an afternoon of racing at Michigan International Speedway. Malsam will make his second-career NCWTS start at Michigan after nearly scoring a top-five finish in his track debut in 2009, ultimately finishing sixth. With the wheel back in his hands, Malsam and his Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM) team are on a mission for redemption this weekend.
This Week's Silverado...
Let's Go...This week at Michigan, the No. 32 will sport the colors of Outerwall for the seventh of 12 races this year.

Previous Race Recap...The No. 32 truck was last on track at Pocono Raceway as TSM driver Kyle Larson tried to tame the Tricky Triangle. Prior to the start of the Pocono Mountains 150, Larson topped the speed charts and swept the weekend's qualifying sessions, claiming his first-career NCWTS and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series pole awards. Continuing to be impeccably fast, Larson led 21 of 60 laps before an engine issue at the halfway mark took the No. 32 Cartwheel by Target Chevrolet out of contention, resulting in an 18th-place finish.
Watch and Listen...Don't miss any of the action as the NCWTS returns to the track at Michigan International Speedway. The Careers for Veterans 200 can be seen live on Saturday, August 16 beginning at 12:00 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 Michigan International Speedway:
"I'm excited to get back behind the wheel of the No. 32 truck this weekend. I've had some luck in Sprint Cars while I've been away from the truck, so I hope I can carry some of that with me this weekend. I like racing at Michigan; the track is wide and you can really race with people. My Turner Scott Motorsports team and I are more determined than ever to turn this season around. I know what we're capable of; I'm ready to get back out there."
