NASCAR NEWS & NOTES

    NASCAR Next Drives Into Dover

    Four current NASCAR Next drivers - Cole Custer, Austin Hill, John Hunter Nemechek and Jesse Little - will test their skills in Friday's Lucas Oil 200 at Dover International Speedway (5:30 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1). Little will make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut, while Custer, Hill and Nemechek will be competing in their 11th, fourth and 13th starts respectively.

    Custer, Hill and Nemechek have made only one start each this season. Hill placed 30th at Daytona. Custer and Nemechek finished 16th and 29th, respectively, at Martinsville.

    Last season, Custer became the youngest NASCAR national series winner (New Hampshire), as well as the youngest NASCAR national series pole winner (Gateway). Nemechek produced high expectations for this season after winning the prestigious Snowball Derby last winter. Hill has racked up four career NASCAR K&N Pro Series East wins along with 16 tops 10s in 27 starts.

    Little has posted strong results in the NKNPSE. He has one NKNPSE win, three poles 11 top fives and 19 top 10s in 39 starts. Little earned the series' Sunoco Rookie of the Year Award in 2013.

    In addition to Custer, Nemechek and Little, NASCAR Next alumni Erik Jones, Ben Kennedy, Cameron Hayley and Ryan Blaney are also on the entry list.

    Jones Aims For First Trucks Win Of 2015

    For most drivers, going five races without a win is not considered a drought.

    It is for Erik Jones.

    The No. 4 Kyle Busch Motorsports driver has never competed in more than four consecutive races without a win until now. He will try to turn around his luck in Friday's Lucas Oil 200.

    What makes the drought sting even more: He probably should have won the last two NCWTS races.

    Three weeks ago at Kansas, Jones led a track-record 151 laps before running out of gas and finishing 11th. A week later at Charlotte, he led a race-high 88 laps and looked like he was going to pull off the victory until a late-race caution. Following the caution Kasey Kahne took the lead from Jones and beat him to the checkered by .005 seconds - tied for the second-closest finish in NCWTS history.

    Jones ranks second in the NCWTS standings, trailing two-time defending series champion Matt Crafton by 16 points. He has three top fives and four top 10s with a high finish of second (Daytona and Charlotte).

    Early Leader: ThorSport Ranks First In Owner Standings After Five Races

    ThorSport Racing, the longest-tenured team in NASCAR Camping World Truck Series history, is in the lead for its first-ever owner's championship. The Sandusky, Ohio-based organization's No. 88 truck leads Kyle Busch Motorsports' No. 4 by 16 points and Brad Keselowski Racing's No. 19 by 18 points.

    Two-time defending driver champion Matt Crafton has helped ThorSport build its lead with two wins, four top fives and five top 10s in five races as it tries to knockoff the winner of the last two owner titles, Kyle Busch Motorsports.

    ThorSport has competed in the NCWTS since 1996. The team has made 777 series starts and has notched 18 wins in 21 years of Truck Series action.

    Blaney Back In The Saddle For BKR

    A familiar face will take the reins of the No. 29 Brad Keselowski Racing Ford for his season NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut in Friday's Lucas Oil 200 at Dover International Speedway - Ryan Blaney.

    Blaney raced full-time for BKR the last two seasons, finishing runner-up in last year's final standings and winning the 2013 Sunoco Rookie of the Year Award. He has won one truck race the last three seasons.

    Blaney's teammate this weekend, Tyler Reddick, has picked up right where Blaney left off in the No. 19 truck. Reddick ranks third in the NCWTS standings on the strength of one win and four top-five finishes. The Corning, California native placed fourth at Charlotte in his last start.
