NASCAR News & Notes

    Youth Continues To Shine In NASCAR Camping World Trucks

    With Chase Elliott's victory at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, four different drivers under the age of 21 have won NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races in 2013. Elliott also set a record as the youngest winner in the history of the series at 17 years, nine months and four days. He eclipsed the previous standard set by Ryan Blaney last year at Iowa Speedway  18 years, eight months and 15 days.

    In fact, of the 11 different winners so far this season in the series, seven of them are 23 or younger. Defending series champion James Buescher and Eldora race winner Ty Dillon are the "old" men at 23 with Kyle Larson, Jeb Burton, Blaney and Elliott all younger than 21 when they won races earlier this year.

    Kentucky race winner Dillon was 21 when he took home the trophy earlier this year.

    Current points leader Matt Crafton is the oldest winner this season at 37, with his 35-year-old teammate Johnny Sauter picking up victories at Daytona and Martinsville. Timothy Peters, who won the first race at Iowa Speedway earlier this season, is the lone remaining driver over 30 to win this season at 33 years young.

    Kyle Busch, who has won at Charlotte, Dover and Bristol, is 28.

    Iowa Speedway could also feature another record-breaking winner as Erik Jones, second to Peters in Iowa's first 2013 race, is entered in the event. The Byron, Mich., native enters Sunday's race at age 17 years, three months and 10 days.

    Four-Time Champion Hornaday To Break Series Starts Record

    It seems a long time ago when Ron Hornaday Jr. started the very first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race from the pole in the in the 1995 Skoal Bandit Copper World Classic at Phoenix International Raceway. Hornaday didn't win that first race (finishing ninth) but the Palmdale, Calif., competitor has done just about everything else in the series.

    Hornaday already holds records in several categories (series titles: four; wins: 51; top fives: 151; top 10s: 221; most years with consecutive poles: seven). He will add to the record book this Sunday in Iowa.

    Hornaday will make his 337th career start in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series when he takes the green flag, the start eclipsing the mark of 336 he shares with Rick Crawford.

    Sunday's Second Annual Fan Appreciation 200 presented by New Holland will be the seventh NCWTS race held at the track and the second consecutive season in which the track has hosted the series twice in a season. & Timothy Peters enters the race as the only repeat winner at Iowa with two wins. Should he win this weekend, he will be the first back-to-back winner of races at the .0.875-mile track. & Matt Crafton pursues his 15th consecutive top-10 finish of the season in Iowa where the points leader has a victory (2011) and six straight top 10s. &NASCAR Next member Ben Kennedy will make his second NCWTS start of his career this weekend.
