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

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

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

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.

AquaStar, a leader in branded seafood for more than 25 years, will sponsor the Hattori Racing Enterprises (HRE) No. 81 Toyota driven by Ryan Truex for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event, the Toyota Tundra 250, Friday, May 6 at Kansas Speedway.

Truex won back-to-back K&N Pro Series East Championships in 2009 and 2010. 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

In the last race on this track type, Reed Sorenson finished 36th at Texas Motor Speedway in the Duck Commander 500, but he was more than 15 laps off the pace when the checkered flag waved.

Sorenson was running at the end of the show, however, and might have made up a little more ground with greater attrition. His best opportunity to score points, however, with be with a positive place-differential if he starts at the tail-end of the field.

Kasey Kahne does not have a lot of success in 2016, but what little does have was earned on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. He enters the GoBowling.com 400 at Kansas Speedway with back-to-back top-10s at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway.

Given his inconsistency, he could fly under the radar this week. If that happens, he could be one of the best differentiators in a player’s lineup. Do not start him unless he starts in the front half of the field, however.
May 3 - 10:02 AM

Ryan Blaney has earned five NASCAR Sprint Cup top-10s in his career and two of those came on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. One of his top results was earned last October when he finished seventh in the Hollywood Casino 400 after starting eighth.

His other top-10 on this track type came at Las Vegas Motor Speedway this spring from a 14th-place starting position, so qualification and practice will be critical in helping fantasy owners decide whether to start the No. 21. Be aware, however, that he faded from seventh to 29th one month ago at Texas.
May 3 - 10:02 AM

Clint Bowyer earned his second top-10 in the last three races by finishing seventh at Talladega SuperSpeedway. He was also eighth at Bristol Motor Speedway and those two top-10s could give the No. 15 team the momentum needed to score their first top-20 on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track this season.

Bowyer came close with a 22nd at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in March and needs only a little nudge to get those extra two spots. That was the only time in three races on this track type in 2016 that he finished on the same lap as the leaders.
May 3 - 10:01 AM

Joey Gase will get behind the wheel of the No. 32 this week and he has been incredibly consistent on this track type. He has not been particularly strong, however, with three 37th-place result and a 38th in four starts. Two of these starts came at Kansas Speedway.

In each of the four races he made, however, he finished better than he started by four or five positions, which could equate to a result in the 34th- to 36th-place range. That is not worth much, but predictability can be valuable to fantasy players.
May 3 - 10:00 AM

Cole Whitt has scored one top-30 in three starts in his current Premium Motorsports ride. The good news is that came in his most recent outing at Texas Motor Speedway when he improved from 37th to 30th.

That also marked the first time this season that he finished better than he started. At Atlanta Motor Speedway and Las Vegas Motor Speedway, he qualified 36th both times and finished 37th and 39th respectively.
May 2 - 7:50 PM

Kurt Busch enters the GoBowling.com 400 with a current streak of 10 consecutive top-10s on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. This streak was started at Kansas Speedway last spring and Busch has an average finish of 7.1 in that span of races.

Expand the parameters a little and Busch has only one result worse than 14th in his last 17 attempts on this course type. That represents nearly his entire career with Stewart-Haas Racing.
May 2 - 7:49 PM

Austin Dillon entered Texas Motor Speedway this April with four consecutive top-15 results on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. He sustained crash damage and finished 19th in the Duck Commander 500—two laps off the pace.

Dillon’s strong finish last week in the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway will help regain some of the momentum he has lost in recent weeks and unless something unforeseen happens, he should be one of this week’s favorites to finish in the top 15 once again.
May 2 - 7:48 PM

In four starts with Front Row Motorsports on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, Chris Buescher has been running at the end of every race and finished 30th or better. He is looking to rebound quickly at Kansas Speedway after taking a wicked tumble at Talladega SuperSpeedway last week that has him batter and bruised.

Buescher’s best finish came at Las Vegas Motor Speedway this season when he finished 26th after starting 25th. In spring 2014, he started 40th at Texas Motor Speedway and earned 10 place-differential points in route to a 30th-place result, so he could be a good value if he qualifies modestly.
