NASCAR News & Notes

    Owners' Championship Battle Remains Close

    Kyle Busch Motorsports sits just 15 points behind ThorSport Racing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series' owners' championship race. Kyle Busch will return to the seat of the No. 51 KBM Toyota for Friday night's WinStar World Casino 350k as he tries to pick up his fifth win of the season. A victory would be Busch's 35th in the series and most since 2011 when he won six times.

    KBM won the owners' championship in 2010, its first season in the series.

    Busch has put multiple drivers in the No. 51 this season with rookie Erik Jones and Chad Hackenbracht both scoring a second-place showings as the best finish by drivers other that Busch this season. Dirt racing veteran Scott Bloomquist also made one start at Eldora.

    Matt Crafton, driving the No. 88 ThorSport Racing Toyota, finished fourth in the June race and is looking for his second win of the season.

    Thorsport Racing also is nearing a record of being the only organization to lead the standings the entire season. Crafton's teammate Johnny Sauter was the points leader following the first three races of the season before Crafton took over with his victory in Kansas. Crafton has remained out front the rest of the way heads to Texas with a 51-point lead over reigning champion James Buescher.

    Thorsport has been with the series almost since 1996 and full-time beginning in 1998. ThorSport drivers twice have finished second in the drivers' championship  Sauter in 2011 and Crafton in 2009. Its ownership best is third in 2009.

    Gaughan Wants One More Win Before Bidding Adieu

    Brendan Gaughan recently announced that he will return to full-time competition in the NASCAR Nationwide Series next season. He's also stated that he wants one more win in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series before he makes the switch and Texas Motor Speedway could provide the victory. The Las Vegas, Nev., native holds the record with four consecutive wins (2002-03) at the track and he finished fifth at the track this past June.

    While there are several repeat winners at, no one has been able to equal Gaughan's mark. There have been five other drivers collect multiple wins with two-time series champion Todd Bodine leading the way with six.

    Gaughan finished second at Martinsville last weekend to match his previous best finish of the season when was runner up to Kyle Busch at Charlotte in May. Gaughan has seven top five finishes so far this season - his best since 2003 when he finished with three wins and 14 top-fives.

    Gaughan will compete in the NASCAR Nationwide Series in 2014 with Richard Childress Racing.

    NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Etc.

    If the top finishing Toyota driver finishes ahead of the top finish Chevrolet driver, Toyota would win the NCWTS Manufacturers' Championship. & Another NASCAR Sprint Cup Series regular will join Busch this weekend at Texas as Brad Keselowski decided to step into the No. 19 truck he owns. Penske Racing teammate Joey Logano was originally scheduled to drive the truck, but Keselowski made the change so Logano could concentrate on his participation in this year's Chase for the Sprint Cup. & Ryan Sieg will make his 100th career series start at Texas Motor Speedway. & Reigning series champion James Buescher will have a fellow Texan as a Turner Scott Motorsports teammate this weekend as Ryan Lynch of New Boston, Texas, will make his second start of the season.(NASCAR Integrated Marketing)(10-29-2013)
