NASCAR NEWS & NOTES
NASCAR Camping World Truck Series
NASCAR Camping World Truck Series King Ron Hornaday Jr. Voted Into NASCAR Hall of Fame
Last Wednesday, Ron Hornaday Jr. was announced as one of the five icons voted into the 2018 NASCAR Hall of Fame class.
Hornaday is considered one of the forefathers of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. The second-generation racer from Palmdale, California, boasts a record four NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championships and 51 series wins. Hornaday also holds the all-time marks for top fives (158) and top 10s (234).
In 2009, Hornaday won five straight NCWTS races, a feat matched only three other times in NASCAR national series history.
Hornaday was overwhelmingly appreciative of being inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame but was quick to praise to the rest of his 2018 NASCAR Hall of Fame classmates.
“I think it was cool to be a part of this class, but I am happy for Evernham, Byron, Mr. Yates and Ken Squier. If wasn’t for everyone who played a role in my career, I wouldn’t haven’t been able to be here.”

Turning The Tides
On his way to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship last season, the race at Dover changed everything for Johnny Sauter.
Following his season-opening win at Daytona, Sauter failed to score a top-15 finish over his next three races at Atlanta (28th), Martinsville (32nd) and Kansas (16th).
After starting 15th last spring at Dover International Speedway, Sauter finished fourth and went on to finish top-13 or better in every race for the remainder of the season – capturing the 2016 title.
Dover proved to change his luck last season and Sauter has driven well there in his career.
In eight career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Dover, Sauter has three top fives and five top 10s, including four-consecutive top 10s.
Sauter is having another championship-like season, as the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series veteran currently leads the series points standings by 15 points.

Five After Five: NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoff Bubble Drivers
After five NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races this season, it’s time to take a look at five NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoff bubble drivers.
9. Ryan Truex: Truex is having a playoff-caliber season. He’s improved his finishing position in each NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race this season. With three-consecutive top 10s, Truex could land himself in the top-8 sooner rather than later.
10. Brett Moffitt: Moffitt has yet to finish outside the top-22 to start the season. He’s been consistent this season – averaging a 12.8 finish through five races.
11. John Hunter Nemechek: Nemechek has had two stout races this season, finishing fourth at Daytona and third at Kansas. In his other three, he’s finished 29th at Atlanta, 28th at Martinsville and 22nd at Charlotte. If Nemechek can put it all together, he could be a playoff contender before long.
12. Regan Smith: Smith, driving part-time in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series for RBR Enterprises, has raced in all five NASCAR Camping World Truck races so far this season. Prior to Charlotte, Smith had only finished 12th or better in four-consecutive races. Following Charlotte, Smith is looking to move up in the standings at Dover.
13. Noah Gragson: Gragson has started his Sunoco Rookie season out strong and sits a couple spots away from a potential NASCAR Camping World Truck Series playoff spot. He’s finished top-15 in three of his last four races, and is looking to do the same at Dover.
