Prelude: Bobby Hamilton and the Dana Racing team will be looking for victory number three on the year if Hamilton can win in the Quaker State 200 from Memphis Motorsports Park. The Dana team already has victories with Hamilton at Martinsville Speedway in April and Joe Ruttman at Phoenix International Raceway in March. For Hamilton, it would be his second win in as many starts if he can get to victory lane. Hamilton, who put on a dominating performance the last time he raced with the Truck Series, is hoping he can avenge last year's disappointment here at Memphis Motorsports Park. Last year, Hamilton started the event from the sixth position and was running with the leaders all day just biding his time. He had moved to second place with the laps winding down and then with the leader in sight, the alternator went dead and the engine lost power. Hamilton limped around the track over the final five laps before being credited with 21st position.

Miles led: Hamilton enters the Quaker State 200 sixth in miles lead (109.154) and second in laps lead (185) in the Truck Series, despite having run only two events this year.

Starts: When Hamilton takes the green flag at the start of the Memphis event, it will be his third start of the year and his 15th overall in the Truck Series.

Remaining Races: Hamilton plans to run two more Craftsman Truck Series events this year. The next event will be at New Hampshire International Raceway and the last event will be Richmond International Raceway. Hamilton won the pole for last year's race at Richmond.
