NASCAR Camping World Truck Series News & Notes

    John Hunter Goes For Nemechek Family Trifecta At NHMS

    New Hampshire Motor Speedway has provided some good memories for Joe Nemechek. The 50-year-old, known as "Front Row Joe," captured his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory at the one-mile oval in 1999 and logged his first premier series start there in 1992. He has even notched a NASCAR Nationwide Series win at the Loudon, New Hampshire track (08/23/92).

    This Saturday, Nemechek's son, John Hunter, will go for the family New Hampshire "sweep" in the UNOH 175 (1 p.m. on FOX Sports 1) as he attempts to clinch his first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victory in his first career start at the track.

    The 17-year old will pilot the No. 8 Gaunt Collision Centre Toyota in the hopes of bouncing back from a season-low 25th-place finish in his last series start at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. He has raced a split-schedule this season, sharing seat-time with his father due to NASCAR age restrictions for tracks measuring longer than 1.25 miles. In seven NCWTS events this season, the younger Nemechek has three sixth-place performances to his credit and has finished lower than 15th only once.

    "I look forward to my next race which is New Hampshire," Nemechek said. "That's definitely my kind of track so look for us to run strong there and hopefully contend for our first win."

    NASCAR Career Comes Full Circle For Quiroga

    German Quiroga hopes to capture his first NASCAR national series victory at the same place as his debut - New Hampshire Motor Speedway - in Saturday's UNOH 175 (1 p.m. on FOX Sports 1).

    The three-time champion in Mexico's NASCAR Toyota Series (2009-11) made his first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at the Loudon track in 2011, two years prior to competing full-time on the circuit for Red Horse Racing. Quiroga posted a respectable 16th-place finish that day, and his career comes full circle, as he returns to where it all started.

    This year, Quiroga has shown marked improvement from his rookie season in 2013 when he placed ninth in the NCWTS standings after posting two top-five and six top-10 finishes. Currently, the 34-year-old ranks fifth in the standings on the strength of three top-five and nine top-10 finishes. He barely missed his first NASCAR national series victory two weeks ago at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park when Ryan Blaney beat him by 0.05 seconds - the second-closest finish ever in a NASCAR national series road course race.

    Defending Champion Crafton Catapults Into Points Lead

    Matt Crafton found himself back in familiar territory following his second-place finish at Chicagoland Speedway on Saturday night. The 2013 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion reclaimed the top spot in the standings where he holds a five-point lead over ThorSport teammate Johnny Sauter. If he can stay out front, Crafton will become the first back-to-back champion and the fourth multi-title winner since the series began in 1995. The No. 88 Menards Toyota Tundra driver has utilized consistency to climb back into the top spot. Since his 26th-place finish at Gateway, he has posted seven top-10 finishes, including four top fives, in eight races. On the season, he has dominated the loop data statistics among full-time NCWTS drivers, ranking first in driver rating (104.3) and average running position (6.8), as well as second in laps led (244, 10.8%) and fastest laps run (158, 8.9%).

    At the moment, Crafton doesn't even have the points race on his mind. He claims he is only focused on winning events until the final race at Homestead. "Homestead is going to be when we worry about (the points race)," Crafton said. "We are going to go to each and every race trying to win, each and every darn race."
