Johnny Sauter, who will be making his 15th start at the Martinsville Virginia track in Saturday afternoon's Kroger 250, has two wins at the "paperclip."

In fact, the ThorSport Racing driver has more wins, and more laps led (286) than any other driver entered in the 250-lap event. More importantly, those two wins came in the spring races of 2011 and 2013. For a driver who is the definition of passion and perseverance, especially at Martinsville Speedway, Sauter hopes to "spring" into victory lane on Saturday.-ThorSport Racing

Johnny Sauter, driver of the No. 98 Nextant Aerospace/Curb Records Toyota Tundra will make his fifth career start in "Hotlanta," and the Necedah, Wisc. native is looking for his first top-five finish at the South Georgia track.

For a veteran driver that finishes in the top-five 36.6 percent of the time, a solid run with a proven chassis, is not out of question for the ThorSport Racing driver. He will pilot chassis No. 45 at Atlanta which was last run at Las Vegas in 2014; started 16th and finished 14th. This is also the same chassis that Sauter took to victory lane at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn in 2014.-ThorSport Racing

Johnny Sauter, driver of the No. 98 Smokey Mountain Herbal Snuff Toyota Tundra, will kick-off his seventh full-time season in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in Friday night's NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona.

In six previous starts at the 2.5-mile superspeedway, Sauter has one win (2013) and two top-five finishes. In fact, the Necedah, Wisc. driver swept both superspeedway races in 2013 at Daytona and Talladega. He hopes to get the 2015 season started off right with a second trip to victory lane, which could help him obtain his ultimate goal, and something that has evaded his successful NCWTS career; a championship title.-Edgehill Management Group

Camping World Truck Series veteran Johnny Sauter will attempt to make the Daytona 500 next month.

Sauter, who finished fourth in Truck Series points last season, will drive the No. 83 BK Racing Toyota Camry with Doug Richert as crew chief. But as Motorsport.com’s Candace Spencer notes, Sauter will have to earn a starting spot in the field as the No. 83 was 41st in Sprint Cup owner points last season. Sauter has made five career Cup starts at Daytona, but none since 2008. His best finish of those starts is a 16th in the 2007 running of the ‘500.’ However, he won at Daytona in the Truck Series in 2013 for ThorSport Racing, his current team in that division.

Sauter, a veteran of the NCWTS, has a long history of success that spans a decade and includes 152 series starts, 10 wins, five poles, 56 top-five and 86 top-10 finishes. In 2015, with guidance from new crew chief, Doug George, the Necedah, Wis., native will be a strong contender for the one thing that has eluded his career; a NCWTS championship.-ThorSport Racing

If history truly does repeat itself, then Johnny Sauter is in prime position to finish the 2014 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) season on a high note.

In only five NCWTS starts at the one-mile Phoenix tri-oval, Johnny Sauter has one pole (2009), has led 11 laps (2009) and produced three top-five and four top-10 finishes.

After two strong runs in the series last two stops at Martinsville and Texas, in which the ThorSport Racing driver didn't have the finishes to back it up, Sauter couldn't think of a better place to get back on track and into victory lane than Friday night's 150-lap event at PIR. A win this week would be a great tribute to Sauter's dad, Jim, who passed away last week at the age of 71. Jim, a former NASCAR driver, made two career Sprint Cup Series starts at Phoenix (1988, and 1999) and earned a career-best fifth starting position in the 1988 event in the desert.-ThorSport Racing
