Tundras Need Charlotte Trophy

TUNDRAS TRY TO TAME CHARLOTTE: Lowe's Motor Speedway is one of only three race tracks (Iowa Speedway and Chicagoland Speedway) where a Tundra driver has not been to victory lane in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS). Tundra drivers have earned four poles -- Mike Skinner (2005, 2006 and 2007) and Busch (2008) -- but have not yet been able to capture the checkered flag. Billy Ballew Motorsports teamed up with Busch to win twice (2005 and 2006) at the mile-and-a-half oval before switching to Tundras last season.

TRACKING TUNDRAS TALLY: Seven Tundra drivers are currently in the top-10 in the NCWTS point standings following the most recent race at Kansas Speedway (April 27). Skinner is leading the standings by 25 points over second place, Ron Hornaday, Jr. Other Tundra drivers in the top-10 include Todd Bodine (third), Johnny Benson (fifth), Busch (sixth), Brian Scott (seventh), Terry Cook (ninth) and Stacy Compton (10th).

FAN FRIENDLY: The Toyota 'PitPass' exhibit will make its way to Lowe's Motor Speedway for both race weekends providing fans with an interactive display to enjoy while taking in the on-track action. The 'PitPass' display has numerous activities for race fans and will include a display featuring Toyota hybrid production vehicles.

AUTOGRAPHS ABOUND: Tundra Camping World Truck Series drivers will participate in an autograph session on Friday (May 15) at the Toyota PitPass display at Lowe's Motor Speedway from 1:30 PM to 2:00 PM.
