Preview Notes- 

-The Camping World Truck Series makes its second visit to Pocono Raceway, for the Good Sam RV Emergency Road Service 125. There are only 50 laps in the event, so expect it to have a “shootout” feel.

-Last year, Elliott Sadler held off Kasey Kahne during a second green-white- checkered finish to win the inaugural race.

-Mark Martin returns to NASCAR Camping World Truck competition at Pocono Raceway for the first time since his 2006 partial season during which he won six times in 14 races.

-Along with Martin, Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick will race at Pocono. Busch will be back behind the wheel of his No.18 Toyota after a three-week hiatus, while Harvick will make his first truck start since May at Dover.
