Truck Series News & Notes - Phoenix International Raceway
The ‘Last Dance' At Old Phoenix
Phoenix International Raceway in its current configuration one-mile oval, narrow frontstretch and dogleg was essential to the creation and continuing success of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
The Feb. 5, 1995 Copper World Classic, an 80-lap race, marked the debut of the then-NASCAR SuperTruck Series by Craftsman, NASCAR's third national series now in its 17th season.
Friday's Lucas Oil 150, the track's 21st NCWTS race, is the “last dance” for series competitors. Phoenix is getting a complete make-over, including compound banking, following this weekend's NASCAR events and effectively will be a brand-new challenge when series competitors return in 2012.Here's a look back at series highlights in the Valley of the Sun.
Rogers That: Clay In The Points Lead...For Now
Clay Rogers finds himself in unfamiliar territory heading into Friday's Lucas Oil 150 at Phoenix International Raceway.
Rogers, making just his 21st start, finished a career-best third at Daytona, which earned him the series points lead. The 30-year-old's only other top five, a fourth, came at New Hampshire in 2005. (Click here for video of Rogers' thoughts on racing to the points lead.) Rogers isn't slated to run a full schedule, so the perch might change in the coming weeks.
Last week's season-opening race saw five Sunoco Rookie of the Year contenders finish among the top 20. Nine drivers thus far have filed for the 2011 rookie award â€“ the most since 2006....Jennifer Jo Cobb's sixth-place finish at Daytona marked the first time a female driver has cracked the top-10 barrier in the series. The previous highest finishing female was Tammy Jo Kirk, 11th at Topeka, Kan. in 1997....Drivers hoping to make their series debut in Phoenix include Dusty Davis, Justin Johnson and B.J. McLeod. Also entered is Greg Pursley, winner of last November's NASCAR K&N Pro Series West event....James Buescher, who led the most laps (55) at Daytona, will make his 50th series start at Phoenix....Chevrolet has won the last four and seven of the past nine series races at Phoenix.Matt Crafton will continue his role as spotter-coach for action sports star Travis Pastrana during Thursday night's K&N Pro Series West race. Crafton assisted Pastrana to a sixth-place finish in last month's NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown.(NASCAR Integrated Marketing Communications)(2-23-2011)
