The Camping World Truck Series returns to action Thursday, June 26th with the UNOH 225 at Kentucky Speedway. Kyle Busch Motorsports owner/driver Kyle Busch gets back behind the wheel of the No. 51 Dollar General Toyota Tundra at Kentucky, joined by KBM regular Darrell Wallace Jr. in the No. 54 Tundra.
Busch, who has won all four Truck Series races he’s entered this season, has had quite a bit of luck at the 1.5-mile track in Sparta: an ARCA Racing Series win in 2003, a Nationwide Series win in 2004, and Truck Series and Cup Series wins in 2011. In four Truck Series starts, he has four top 10 finishes and an average finish of 4.3.
“I don’t think there is anything that I’m doing in particular to win these races - it’s a total team effort,” said Busch on the KBM website. “It’s all about being focused and putting your mind to it. That’s a lot easier to do when you know that you’re in good equipment and believing in my guys that they are unloading some really fast Tundras. You can’t just unload and expect to win - you have to keep working hard throughout the practice sessions and tweaking on your stuff to make it better for the race. We’ve been able to do that over the first four races I’ve been in the truck this season and we’ll look to try and get another victory this week at Kentucky. It’s our first race this year with Dollar General onboard and I know that Rick Dreiling (Chairman and Chief Executive Officer) and a lot of their executives are going to be there, so hopefully we can be celebrating with them in victory lane after the race.”
Wallace Jr., the series’ most recent winner at Gateway Motorsports Park, started second and finished 28th last season at Kentucky after tangling with Ryan Blaney.
Qualifying for the UNOH 225 gets underway at 4:40 p.m. ET, with the race going green at 8 p.m. ET. Keep up with the action at www.kylebuschmotorsports.com.
