Ryan Ellis will make his second NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at the Kansas Speedway.

The #1 Chevy will be sporting a special logo for the Ehlers Danlos National Foundation. This is a special cause to MAKE because Mark Beaver, MAKE co-owner, has two daughters, Amanda and Emily who have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS). Individuals with Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS) have a genetic defect in their connective tissue, the tissue that provides support to many body parts such as the skin, muscles and ligaments. The fragile skin and unstable joints found in patients with EDS are the result of faulty or reduced amounts of collagen. Collagen is a protein, which acts as a "glue" in the body, adding strength and elasticity to connective tissue.(MAKE Motorsports)-jayski.com

Scott Lagasse, Jr. will make his second NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) start of 2015 for NTS Motorsports at Kansas Speedway, this time behind the wheel of the No. 31 Boy Scouts of America/Beck Chevrolet Silverado.

Lagasse had an impressive run in his NTS Motorsports debut earlier this season at Daytona, contending for the win throughout the 250-mile race, ultimately finishing third in the NCWTS season opener. Although he only has one previous NCWTS start at Kansas, he has a great deal of experience around the 1.5-mile D-shaped oval. In addition to two NASCAR XFINITY Series starts at the Kansas City track, Lagasse has also participated in four ARCA Racing Series events at Kansas Speedway, earning a victory and his best start (third) in 2007.-NTS Motorsports

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) returns from its final long hiatus to head west to Kansas Speedway for 250 miles of racing in the Sunflower State.

Rookie of the Year contender Daniel Hemric has never made a lap around the fifteen-degree banks of Kansas Speedway, but has two previous starts at 1.5-mile ovals: Homestead-Miami Speedway in 2014 and Atlanta Motor Speedway earlier this season. Hemric has a best finish of 12th at an intermediate facility.-NTS Motorsports

Kasey Kahne has been selected to pilot the No. 00 Haas Automation Chevrolet in the upcoming NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race at Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 15.

Kahne will make his first NCWTS start since winning at Rockingham Speedway in 2012. The Charlotte event also complements the 10-race schedule the No. 00 team will run with primary driver, 17-year-old Cole Custer. Said JRM's general manager Kelley Earnhardt Miller: "With Cole’s age, he’s not eligible to compete on some of the bigger tracks, so we had to limit the schedule based on that fact. This opportunity to have Kasey in the truck will help the team evaluate our program on an intermediate track." In five NCWTS starts, Kahne has won four of them (two at Darlington Raceway and one each at Homestead-Miami Speedway and Rockingham Speedway) and never finished worse than second. Along with an average finish of 1.2, he has led 307 of 686 career laps.-JR Motorsports

Michael Annett has had a rocky start to the 2015 season on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. He failed to qualify at Atlanta Motor Speedway when the team could not get through the Technical Inspection line on time. He swapped seats with Brian Scott in the No. 33 and finished 29th, but his last two efforts ended in a 39th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and 40th at Texas Motor Speedway.

Results on this track type are often cyclical. Annett could rebound this week, but it is just as likely he will suffer through another disappointing result. Caution dictates leaving him in the garage.

Brett Moffitt has made all three starts for the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year. Two of these came with Michael Waltrip Racing at Atlanta Motor Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway, while the other was in the No. 34 Front Row Motorsports car at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. He will continue to gain experience with a fourth start this week.

Moffitt’s best finish was a dramatic eighth at Atlanta early this year subbing for Brian Vickers, but his result with FRM was more typical of what fantasy owners can expect in the SpongeBob SquarePants 400. He finished 37th at Vegas after starting 36th.

Ty Dillon is making his Sprint Cup Series debut at the 1.5-mile speedway piloting the No. 33 Plankton Chevrolet SS.

In one NASCAR XFINITY Series start at Kansas Speedway coming last October, Dillon won the pole award and finished fifth. In two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts, Dillon has two top-10 finishes. Crew chief Richard "Slugger" Labbe will be a top the pit box for this weekend's SpongeBob SquarePants 400. Labbe has five wins, 33 top-five and 91 top-10 finishes as a Sprint Cup Series crew chief, including a win at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 2011 with Paul Menard.-Richard Childress Racing

In six starts at Kansas Speedway since 2009, Johnny Sauter has one win, three top-five and four top-10 finishes.

In fact, according to NASCAR'S Loop Data Statistics, Sauter ranks first among driver's entered in Friday night's Toyota Tundra 250 in the following categories; Average Running Position (8.12), Driver Rating (100.9), Fastest Laps Run (61), and Laps Led (112). Furthermore, six of Sauter's 10 NCWTS victories have come at intermediate tracks, including his last win at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, MI.-ThorSport Racing

NAPA AUTO PARTS will grow its relationship with 11-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champions Hendrick Motorsports in 2016 when it becomes the majority sponsor of driver Chase Elliott and his No. 24 Chevrolet SS team.

The news was announced Tuesday evening in Las Vegas during the NAPA EXPO, which is attended by more than 17,000 store owners, managers and dealers. The expanded partnership will feature NAPA AUTO PARTS as a primary sponsor of the No. 24 team in 24 Sprint Cup races annually, including the season-opening Daytona 500, and as an associate-level partner in all other events. The agreement covers the 2016, 2017 and 2018 seasons.-Hendrick Motorsports

Cole Whitt has finished between 32nd and 37th in three similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track races this year in the No. 35 Front Row Motorsports Ford.

His best result came at Vegas, but he was five laps off the pace at the checkers. Once he is able to consistently finish within one or two laps of the leaders, he will become a solid value.
May 6 - 9:33 AM

In three starts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year, Landon Cassill has improved every week. He blew an engine at Atlanta Motor Speedway and finished 43rd, advanced to 35th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and was 32nd at Texas Motor Speedway.

A top-30 could be in the offing, but not just because of this statistic. Cassill has earned four such finishes in 10 attempts this season, including a 25th on the two-mile, unrestricted intermediate Auto Club Speedway.
