Jeb Burton will make his second start at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park north of the border, and this year he is looking for redemption.

Coming off two track best finishes in the last two series events (Michigan and Bristol), Burton hopes to continue his NCWTS success - making it three in a row at "Mosport" on Sunday. Said Burton: "2013 was my first time on a road course and after running the Canadian Tire race prior to the Truck Series race I felt like I had a good grasp on the track. Overall I believe I did pretty well. I had a top-five truck, but unfortunately I went laps down early when I had to go behind the wall for my team to fix a broken transmission. I feel like if we didn't have that issue I could have put up a fight."-ThorSport Racing

In the last three NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races Matt Crafton, driver of the No. 88 IDEAL Door/Menards Toyota Tundra, has gained four points on the championship points leader.

With only eight races remaining on the 2014 schedule, the defending Truck Series champion is a mere eight points behind ThorSport Racing teammate Johnny Sauter entering the 2nd annual NCWTS event at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park in Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada. Coming off a top-10 run in the inaugural event at the 2.459-mile road course, the Menards driver hopes to stay on course and keep gaining momentum in the driver point standings in hopes of becoming the first driver in series history to capture back-to-back titles.-ThorSport Racing

Johnny Sauter made seven road-course starts across NASCAR's top three divisions including, two starts in Sprint Cup in 2007, four starts in the Nationwide Series in 2005 and 2006, and one start in last year's inaugural Camping World Truck Series event at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park in Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada.

Said Sauter: "Canadian Tire Motorsports Park is a cool place. Obviously, very fast -- that's what I remember taking away from there last year. We unfortunately had trouble with our fuel cable on lap two of the race and fought that the rest of the day, so I didn't really have an opportunity to race a whole lot. (completed 34 of 64 laps, finished 28th). He hopes his team's full-day test session, at a local track in Ohio, in preparation for the 2nd annual event, and his former road course racing experience will pay dividends in his quest for his first Truck Series crown.-ThorSport Racing
