SANDUSKY, Ohio - Champion sprint car racer Cory Kruseman is again trying his hand at the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series in a truck fielded by ThorSport Racing, it was announced Tuesday. Kruseman is set to drive the No. 98 Agromin/Menards Chevrolet in the Silverado 150 at the Phoenix International Raceway Friday, October 31.

"It's great to have Cory back with us this week," said ThorSport owner Duke Thorson. "Cory made this race last year, against a very tough field and in his first time in a truck. With that experience and some time he spent with us recently testing, we're looking forward to an even better performance this time."

Kruseman made his truck debut in the 2002 Silverado 150. He qualified 32nd out of 42 trucks which entered the event. Engine failure after 109 laps left the California native 31st in the final rundown.

Practice and qualifying for this year's Silverado 150 is slated for Wednesday, October 29. The race takes the green flag at 5:45 p.m. EST/2:45 p.m. PST Friday, October 31. The Silverado 150 will be telecast live by SpeedChannel and broadcast via the radio affiliates of the Motor Racing Network.
