Preview

While the Sprint Cup Series heads to The Brickyard, NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series and Nationwide Series will compete down the road at Lucas Oil Raceway.  Friday night, under the lights, the trucks will run in the AAA Insurance 200.

Austin Dillon is on a “little bit” of a hot streak now with hopes that his luck will continue this week.

The 21-year-old won the Lucas Deep Clean 200 last weekend and is inching ever closer to the points lead. He finished sixth at LOR last season and after a slow start to this season, has been steadily building momentum. Dillon will be one of four drivers pulling double duty this weekend. The others include Elliot Sadler, Jennifer Jo Cobb, and James Buescher.

It’s hard to believe, but Ron Hornaday has been struggling ever since Texas, but he might just turn his luck around at LOR. Hornaday has won three out of the last four events held here and has five victories overall. Since 2005, Hornaday has finished no worse than third.  Sitting at ninth in the points, a win could be the spark this team needs to move forward to a second consecutive championship.

Johnny Sauter remains your points leader. Dillon, Buescher, Cole Whitt, and Timothy Peters round out your Top 5.

NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series will head to Pocono Raceway August 6th for the Good Sam RV Emergency Road Service 125.

Total purse: $480,131 (2010 figures)

Defending Polesitter: Timothy Peters

Defending Champion: Ron Hornaday Jr.
