Darlington Gets Truck Race
NASCAR on Wednesday announced the addition of historic Darlington Raceway to the 2010 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule.
The Aug. 14 Too Tough To Tame 200 replaces an event at The Milwaukee Mile on the 25-race schedule and marks the series’ return to the 1.366-mile South Carolina track that hosted four races between 2001 and 2004.
“Our fans have asked us to bring back the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series because Darlington is a perfect fit for the tough racing the series offers,” said Darlington Raceway President Chris Browning. “We are excited to be able to bring back the trucks in 2010 and look forward to putting on a memorable show for all of our fans.”
NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champions Bobby Hamilton and Ted Musgrave are among previous series winners at Darlington Raceway – Hamilton winning twice in 2001 and 2003. NASCAR Sprint Cup Series star Kasey Kahne won the series’ final appearance at Darlington in 2004.
“It’s awesome to return to one of NASCAR’s oldest tracks,” said NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Director Wayne Auton. “There will be a full day of racing since this is a one-day show. The fans definitely will get their money’s worth.”
The single-day schedule features practice, qualifying and a 200-mile, 147-lap race beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET.
The 2010 season is the 16th for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and begins Feb. 19 with the NextEra Energy 250 at Daytona International Speedway.No Comment
