Welcome NASCAR race fans to my NASCAR blog. Friday at Dover International Speedway starts out with qualifying for the Lucas Oil 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race. It seemed to me the announcers are expecting you to be home watching instead of at the track. The Tower wasn’t working right so I didn’t get to see many of the speeds. And I had to look up who some of the drivers numbers later to find out who they were. But they got in their favorite, Kyle Busch in his 18 Truck, even though he is not a Truck driver, but rather, a Sprint Cup driver. This Camping World Truck Series fan would rather hear about the Truck drivers. 66 Justin Marks will start the Lucas Oil 200 race later this afternoon from the pole with a speed of 156.924 mph and 22.941 seconds. 2 Kevin Harvick will start second with 18 Busch third. Let’s see if these two Cup drivers can get together with each other and let a Truck driver win the race.
NASCAR Sprint Cup Series practice for the Autism Speaks 400 took place after the Trucks qualified. 48 Jimmie Johnson ended up being the fastest , followed by 43 A. J. Allmendinger, 88 Dale Earnhardt, Jr., 4 Kasey Kahne and 20 Joey Logano. They will have Happy Hour after the NASCAR Nationwide Series has their practice.
After the first practice for Cup, the Nationwide drivers practiced for the 5-hour Energy 200. 6 Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. was the fastest in practice. That’s it for now. Lucas Oil 200 coming up.
