Terry Cook Gets Monkey Off His Back, Ready for Dega

*Terry Cook will be making his fourth start this weekend in Talladega, Alabama for the second superspeedway race of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season.

*At the season opener this year in Daytona on the sister track to Talladega Superspeedway, Cook logged his highest finish this year when he finished third.

*Cook is tied with Colin Braun for the Featherlite Most Improved Driver Award so far this year.

*In 36 speedway starts (two + miles or over), Cook has no wins, one pole, four top-five and 18 top-10 finishes. He has led 61 laps on this particular style of track.

*This Week's Truck: Terry will pilot the HT Chassis called Freak this weekend.

Terry Cook:

Monkey Off Our Backs: "After a much needed break to regroup, our team went into Martinsville hoping for a strong finish to carry some momentum into the final stretch of the year. Finishing in the top 10 in Martinsville really helped our team realize we have put together a strong program. And one of the best parts is that both of HT Motorsports trucks were in one piece. That is a big relief to Jim (Harris, owner) and our team to not have to worry about fixing a bunch of damage that happens at the short tracks, especially since we will take that same truck to Phoenix in a few weeks. Now that we hopefully have this monkey off our backs, we can move forward."

Superspeedways: "We only do two superspeedway races each year. This is the time where you tighten those belts and never lift. We go wide open, three-wide, four-wide, on the top, in the middle or on the apron. One lap you can be leading and then very next lap you can be in 25th position. This is wild stock car racing at its finest. The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series hasn't been to Talladega Superspeedway that many times, but this was a great addition to our schedule when NASCAR added it. It really gives the fans some excitement watching these trucks on this track. The cup cars move through the air so smoothly, but our trucks are like a box parting the air. It just means for a bouncier ride for us drivers and a better show for the fans."
