Tyler Reddick (#29 Cooper Standard Ford F-150) will be making his second NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) start in the Toyota Tundra 250 Friday night at Kansas Speedway.

In 2015, Reddick overcame an accident in qualifying to lead laps and fight his way into contention for the win, but his chance for victory faded when he ran out of fuel in the closing laps. He scored more points (624) and racked up more top-five finishes (9) than any other NCWTS driver on intermediate size tracks in 2015. Finished the 2015 season with three top-five finishes on intermediate-size tracks.-Brad Keselowski Racing

Daniel Hemric (#19 Oakmont Management Group Ford F-150) has one previous start at the 1.5-mile D-shaped Kansas Speedway oval.

The 25-year-old Kannapolis, N.C., native earned the first top 10 of his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) career at the track in 2015. Hemric has more top fives (two) and top-10 finishes (eight) at intermediate tracks than any other configuration on the NCWTS schedule. He currently sits seventh in the NCWTS championship standings, just 18 points out of the lead.-Brad Keselowski Racing

An accident at Texas Motor Speedway this April snapped a 56-race streak in which Greg Biffle had been running at the end of every race on one of the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. He finished 14th in that event. This streak extended all the way back to the 2010 season and he won the Price Chopper 400 by Kraft Foods at Kansas Speedway in October of that year.

That was even more disappointing because he entered the weekend with three consecutive top-20s at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and Texas last spring. He was banged about last week at Talladega as well, so it is difficult to predict a momentum shift.

For Casey Mears, consistency on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks has been a key factor in the past two seasons. All but two of his last 13 attempts on this course type dating back to the beginning of 2015 have ended in top-25s.

Mears has been a little less consistent at Kansas Speedway, however. In his last six races there, he has finished worse than 25th three times and scored two results on the cusp of 20th. If he practices well and fits the right salary cap niche he could be a good value, but he will be a race day decision.
May 3 - 5:01 PM

In 16 starts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks in the No. 95, Michael McDowell has been running at the end of all but one race. He blew an engine in the 2014 Las Vegas Motor Speedway event. He has been on track ever since.

McDowell’s best finish in that span of races was a 27th at Atlanta last spring, but this team is not giving up and were only one lap off the pace at Vegas this spring. A 29th in that race showed considerable improvement over the previous year.

Matt Kenseth and Joey Logano were both involved in the same late-race accident at Talladega SuperSpeedway that ended their day, but it was not their first contact on the track. While trying to bump-draft the No. 20, Logano knocked Kenseth off course and the two argued about the incident outside of the care center.

Rewind to last fall’s Hollywood Casino 400 and Logano’s bump on Kenseth that effectively ended his Chase hopes. That storyline will be front-of-mind this week and could trigger further retaliation between a pair of drivers with bad blood. Logano is undoubtedly still stinging over the Martinsville Speedway wreck that ended his Chase. Neither driver is a safe bet in the upcoming GoBowling.com 400.
May 3 - 4:56 PM

Ryan Blaney led the field at Talladega SuperSpeedway in one category last week: He made 817 green flag passes during the afternoon, which equated to more than 5.5 cars per lap during the 147 green flag laps around the circuit. Green flag passes are counted in multiple locations around the track at scoring loops. He ended the day ninth.

Blaney earned a lot of experience in that race in route to a top-10 finish and will be a better value once the series returns there in the fall. His high number of passes means that he was in heavy traffic all afternoon. The next closest competitor in this regard was Ricky Stenhouse Jr. with 653 green flag passes.

Making only his sixth career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) start, Rico Abreu (#98 Safelite/CURB Records Toyota Tundra) will make his Kansas Speedway debut in Friday's 167-lap event at the 1.5-mile track.

In Abreu's intermediate track debut at Atlanta Motor Speedway earlier this season, he started 27th and finished 11th. The team will utilize chassis No. 45 for Friday night's Toyota Tundra 250 at Kansas; the same chassis Johnny Sauter piloted in 2015 to four top-10 finishes, including two fourth-place finishes at Texas (June), and Michigan.-ThorSport Racing
May 3 - 3:11 PM

Among active series drivers, Matt Crafton (#88 Ideal Door/Menards Toyota Tundra) is the only NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) driver to compete in all 15 events at the 1.5-mile Kansas Speedway.

The two-time champion was the first repeat Truck Series winner, finding victory lane in 2013 and 2015, and he is tied with Johnny Sauter for the most top-five finishes (4), has the most top-10 finishes (7), has completed more laps (2406), and has the most lead lap finishes (9). Major Milestone...The Tulare, California native extended the NCWTS record for consecutive starts to 364 following the Alpha Energy Solutions 250 at Martinsville Speedway.-ThorSport Racing
May 3 - 3:06 PM

Ben Rhodes (#41 Operation BBQ Relief/Alpha Energy Solutions Toyota Tundra) will make his Kansas Speedway debut in Friday night's 167 lap event.

In Rhodes' intermediate track debut earlier this season, the Louisville, Kentucky native started seventh and finished sixth at Atlanta Motor Speedway. The No. 41 ThorSport Racing team will utilize chassis No. 53 for Friday night's Toyota Tundra 250 at Kansas Speedway. This is the same chassis that Rhodes piloted at Atlanta.-ThorSport Racing
May 3 - 3:00 PM

In the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series' last stop at the 1.5-mile Kansas Speedway, Cameron Hayley started eighth, and brought home his first career NCWTS top-five finish, finishing fifth.

The No. 13 ThorSport Racing team will utilize chassis No. 35 for Friday's Toyota Tundra 250. This is the same chassis that teammate Matt Crafton won with at Kansas in 2015, after starting second. Last Race - Martinsville Speedway... Making his third career start at Martinsville, Hayley started fourth, led the field once for 11 laps, and finished ninth.-ThorSport Racing

The 2009 campaign also earned him the Rookie of the Year honors and gave Michael Waltrip Racing its first NASCAR championship. Truex became only the second driver in series history to win both honors in the same year, after only Joey Logano. He is currently competing for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Championship piloting the #81 HRE Toyota. The team finished second at the season opener at Daytona and is currently tied for 5th in the series point standings.-HRE
