Ryan Truex and the No. 98 Carrol Shelby Engine Company comes to Texas after a strong run at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Truex is known as short track specialist, but his two mile-and-a-half track starts this year show great promise in his ability at the larger, high speed tracks. He made his only start at Texas Motor Speedway in the 2012 summer XFINITY Series race. As an organization, Biagi DenBeste Racing made 10 XFINITY Series starts at the track with one Top-10 and three Top-20 finishes.-Breaking Limits Wed, Nov 4, 2015 08:20:00 PM

Ryan Truex will pilot the No. 98 Carrol Shelby Engine Co. Ford Mustang for Biagi DenBeste Racing at Texas Motor Speedway.

He raced with the NASCAR XFINITY team at Richmond, Charlotte and Kentucky earlier this year. With the majority of the XFINITY schedule comprised of mile-and-a-half tracks, the #98 team looks to add to their notebook in preparation for the 2016 season. In Truex's three starts this season, he has one Top-20 finish and two DNFs, but the results don't tell the entire story. In both races with DNFs, he was running in the Top-10 when bad luck found the #98 Ford Mustang.-Breaking Limits

Ryan Truex (No. 98 Carrol Shelby Engine Company Ford Mustang) will make his third and final start of the 2015 NASCAR XFINITY Series season this weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

While short track racing is Truex preferred style, he has shown good speed at the mile-and-a-half tracks. In his second start of the season at Kentucky, Truex ran in the Top-10 before becoming collateral damage in an on-track scuffle between other competitors. Truex has three starts at Charlotte Motor Speedway, with one in the Sprint Cup Series and two in the XFINITY Series.-Breaking Limits

Ryan Truex will make his return to the NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) for three races this season with Richard Petty Motorsports and will pilot the No. 98 Ford Mustang for Biagi DenBeste Racing.

He will hit the track at Richmond for his first NXS start of the 2015 season. He will also compete at Kentucky Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway. Truex has a combined 65 starts in NASCAR's top national touring series. He has 35 NXS starts with one pole, two Top-Five and nine Top-10 finishes with a best effort of second at Dover in 2012. Truex has made four NXS starts at Richmond, resulting in one Top-Five and two Top-10 finishes.-Breaking Limits

Ryan Truex’s run in the No. 83 Burger King/Borla Exhaust Toyota appears to have come to an end, after BK Racing replaced the New Jersey native with former Camping World Truck Series champion Travis Kvapil last weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Sources within the team said the change stemmed from unhappiness with the level of feedback received from Truex. He is not expected to return to the car this season.-GodfatherMotorsports.com

BK Racing has made two driver changes for the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Ryan Truex has been removed from the No. 83 to be replaced by Travis Kvapil, who was scheduled to drive the No. 93. Clay Rogers will race that car on Sunday.

There is currently no news about how many races Truex might miss. In all likelihood this is an evaluation race, allowing the more experienced Kvapil to determine if there is something that needs to be changed in the car.

Ryan Truex finished 30th in the STP 500 at Martinsville this spring, but that is his only top-30 in five races on this track type. His last five attempts this season have ended in results of 36th or worse, and he needs a top-30 to restore his confidence.

Unfortunately his Martinsville finish and a 20th at Pocono in August are his only two top-30s in 29 career starts, so it is unlikely that he will make his way onto many fantasy rosters.

Ryan Truex’s team could not get their car through the inspection process prior to qualification. They failed to post a timed lap and was forced to take a provisional starting position of 43rd.

The good news is that Truex has no place to go but forward and his last two attempts ended just outside the top 35, which should earn some positive place differential points in games that award them.

Ryan Truex crashed hard off of turn two in the opening minutes of the Saturday morning practice session.

Truex walked from the car, but has been transported to a local hospital for observation. The No. 83 was destroyed and he will have to roll out a backup car for Sunday’s race.

Ryan Truex has finished in the top 30 only one time in six races this season. His 30th-place finished came on the short track of Martinsville.

Far more predictive of where he will finish this week is the 32nd he scored in the first Pocono race. There are very few scenarios in which Truex could be considered a reasonable dark horse for the GoBowling.com 400.

Ryan Truex has reliably finished in the 30s in five flat track races this year. His best result was a 30th at Martinsville and his worst was a 36th last week at New Hampshire.

The most comparable track to Indy that he faced is Pocono, where Truex finished 32nd. This consistency gives the team a great set of notes from which to work, but it will limit his fantasy appeal until he can begin logging results in the 20s.

Ryan Truex is still looking for his first top-25 of the season as well as his first complete race. His best result this year was a 30th at Martinsville and he finished only one lap down to the leaders on two occasions—at Auto Club and Pocono.

Two of his achievements came on flat tracks, which tend to reward driver skill more than engine superiority. There are typically several strong choices on that track type, however, and that has limited Truex’s effectiveness.

In three starts at Phoenix, Martinsville, and Richmond this year Ryan Truex has been extremely consistent with results ranging from 30th to 35th.

In addition to these three races, Truex also finished 35th in last year’s Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond. Odds are good he will finish in this same range at New Hampshire, so fantasy players should plan accordingly.

Ryan Truex and the No. 83 Burger King / Dr Pepper Toyota Camry team finished 33rd at Kentucky Speedway on Saturday night.

After challenges with the balance of their car during the early stages of the race, Truex was able to work closely with his BK Racing crew to improve their Toyota Camry and drive to a 33rd-place finish.-A2B Strategies LLC
