NASCAR Camping World Truck Series News & Notes

    Three Drivers, Three Races To Go In Title Hunt

    It's crunch time for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship contenders, with three races left in the 2014 season. The title hunt has turned into a three-horse battle between Matt Crafton, Ryan Blaney and Darrell Wallace Jr.

    Defending champion and current points leader Crafton has experience on his side, with success at the trio of tracks - Texas, Phoenix and Homestead.

    Crafton claims one win at Texas and top-10 finishes in his last six races there. He boasts nine top-10 finishes in 13 starts at Phoenix and five top-10 results in 13 races at Homestead.

    Although Blaney (-18 points behind Crafton) and Wallace (-22) have limited starts at the remaining tracks, consistency will be a major factor in gaining ground on Crafton as the two drivers are riding the momentum of consecutive top-10 finishes in the last four races.

    Blaney has logged an average finish of 6.5 in the past four races. In eight races combined at the final three tracks, he has three top-five and five top-10 showings. His 14 top-10 finishes this season rank tied for the series lead with Crafton and Johnny Sauter.

    No one in the NCWTS has more momentum than Wallace right now. The 21-year-old has had top-five showings in his last five races, including two runner-ups and a victory last week at Martinsville. Looking ahead, Wallace has posted top-10 finishes in all three of his Texas starts. He has never finished in the top 10 at Phoenix or Homestead, but only claims one start at each track.

    Kennedy And Reddick: Rookie Season Lessons

    Sunoco Rookie of the Year contenders Ben Kennedy and Tyler Reddick find their debut seasons on the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series coming to a close in three short weeks.

    Kennedy currently holds a 24-point advantage in the rookie standings over Reddick, fueled by six top-10 finishes, including a career-high third-place finish at Martinsville in March. He ranks eighth in the NCWTS driver standings and has been the highest rookie finisher in eight races.

    Reddick, who splits seat team with NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stalwart Brad Keselowski in the No. 19 Ford F-150, has come on strong lately with four top-10 finishes in his last five races. His two best showings so far this year were fourth-place performances at Talladega and Chicagoland. The 18-year-old clinched his first career pole at Talladega just over a week ago.

    Kennedy and Reddick continue their Sunoco Rookie of the Year battle in Friday's WinStar World Casino and Resort 350 at Texas Motor Speedway (8:30 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1). Both drivers competed at the Texas race in June, with Kennedy finishing 14th and Reddick taking 21st.

    ThorSport Drivers Dominant In Lone Star State

    If there is one team with drivers who have figured out the secret to Texas Motor Speedway, it's ThorSport Racing. Jeb Burton, Matt Crafton and Johnny Sauter have each scored a win and pole at the 1.5-mile track, earning a combined four victories and five pole awards.

    The trio heads back to the Ft. Worth facility for Friday's WinStar World Casino and Resort 350 (8:30 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1) ready to further exert its dominance.

    After winning at Texas in June, Crafton looks to repeat his success and become the first driver to sweep since Sauter in 2012. Leading Ryan Blaney by 18 points in the driver standings, a strong finish can help Crafton become the first ever repeat series champion. Additionally, the 38-year-old can help ThorSport clinch its first owner championship. Crafton's No. 88 Toyota Tundra trails Kyle Busch Motorsports' No. 51 truck by a mere four points in the owner standings with three races remaining. Kyle Busch, winner of six races this season, returns to the seat of the No. 51 at Texas.

    Sauter and Burton will attempt to improve on their respective seventh and 12th-place finishes from the June Texas race. Sauter ranks fourth in the NCWTS standings and Burton mans the ninth spot, giving ThorSport three drivers in the top 10.

    NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Etc.

    Toyota can clinch its second consecutive NCWTS manufacturer championship if its top-finishing driver places seventh or better in Friday's WinStar World Casino and Resort 350 (8:30 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1). A competitor in the truck series since 2004, Toyota boasts six manufacturer titles. ... Sunoco Rookie of the Year candidate Tyler Young visited liver transplant patients at Baylor All Saints Medical Center in Fort Worth, Texas on Wednesday, Oct. 29 in honor of his father, Randy, who received a life-saving liver transplant from the medical center in 2009. Young's No. 02 Chevrolet will also feature the Simmons Transplant Institute of Baylor All Saints Medical Center logo at Texas Motor Speedway.
