NCWTS: Talladega Superspeedway Race Preview
The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will return to the high banks of the Talladega Superspeedway for the 10th annual Fred’s 250 on Saturday. The race will serve as the 19th stop for the series in 2015. Timothy Peters enters the weekend at the 2.66-mile oval as the defending race winner.
The entry list features 34 drivers. Some of these include Travis Kvapil, Chad Boat, Andy Seuss, Brian Keselowski, Terry Jones, Bobby Gerhart, Chris Fontaine, Tyler Tanner, Austin Hill, Stanton Barrett and Timmy Hill. Two of the 34 drivers will go home after qualifying on Saturday morning.
Erik Jones enters the weekend leading the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series standings by four points over two-time defending champion Matt Crafton. Crafton became the first back-to-back champion last season and has four opportunities left if he wants the turkey. Tyler Reddick, Johnny Sauter and Daniel Hemric all round out the time five.
Brian Keselowski will make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut behind the wheel of the No. 29 Ford on Saturday. Brian Keselowski, 34, is the older brother of 2012 Sprint Cup Series champion Brad Keselowski. The driver has made limited starts in the Sprint Cup and XFINITY Series.
Keselowski is excited to see his brother back on the track in a NASCAR vehicle.
"(Brian) gets to drive the truck that finished fourth at Daytona in the spring," wrote Brad Keselowski on his blog. "I’m looking for him to have a safe day, first and foremost, and beyond that, to run up front, and make the most of the opportunity. He’s got a good team that could win the race, and he knows that, too."
Two-time reigning NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour champion Andy Seuss will make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut at the Talladega Superspeedway on Saturday. Seuss will pilot the No. 28 FDNY Chevrolet around the 2.66-mile oval for owner Jim Rosenblum. The team will make their fourth race attempt in 2015.
The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race will be televised on FOX and FOX Sports Go at 1:00 p.m. ET. on Saturday afternoon. Fans can also listen to the live radio broadcast provided by the Motor Racing Network.
