This Week’s Tundra… Tayler Malsam will compete with chassis MDM-110 at Darlington Raceway. MDM-110 is a brand new chassis that was built especially for Darlington Raceway. The laps during the opening practice session on Saturday morning will be the first laps completed by MDM-110 on a track.

I’m excited to finally have the chance to race at Darlington [Raceway]

Tayler Malsam

First Timer…This weekend will mark Tayler Malsam’s first race at the “Lady in Black.” The Seattle, Wash. native tested at the 1.366-mile oval in 2008 as a development driver for Bill Davis Racing. Malsam, then 19, logged laps around the difficult South Carolina track while behind the wheel of a Toyota Tundra and hopes to benefit from that experience during the race on Saturday evening.

Meet Tayler... Fans at the track in Darlington, S.C. will have the opportunity to meet Tayler Malsam in the hours leading up to the race on Saturday afternoon. The driver of the No. 25 One Eighty Toyota Tundra will join other drivers in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series to meet fans and sign autographs. The NCWTS autograph session will be held on pit road at Darlington Raceway from 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. EST.

Local Talent Returns Home… Fayetteville, N.C. native Matt House will return to his home track, Darlington Raceway, for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event this weekend. House, a 2004 graduate of Cape Fear High School, is in his third season as the front tire carrier on the No. 25 One Eighty Toyota Tundra team.

· Welcome Back One-Eighty… One Eighty, the Seattle-based company that acted as Malsam’s primary sponsor at Daytona International Speedway last month, will make another appearance on the hood of the 22-year-old’s Toyota Tundra this weekend at Darlington Raceway.

Tayler Malsam on racing at Darlington Raceway

“I’m excited to finally have the chance to race at Darlington [Raceway]. It’s such an old speedway with so much history behind it. It’s unlike any other track on the [NASCAR Camping World] Truck Series circuit, so it will be a whole new experience for me. The trucks put on a really great show there last year, and I’m sure this year will be no different. The One Eighty Toyota Tundra team put a lot hard work into building us a brand new truck for this weekend and we all know what we need to accomplish during practice. We’re looking forward to going to the track and getting the weekend started.”

Crew Chief Dan Stillman on competing at Darlington Raceway

“Darlington [Raceway] is truly the track that is ‘too tough to tame.’ It’s a driver’s track—Tayler and I will need to work together and communicate well to determine what his Toyota Tundra is doing as he drives through the corners. Then we need to adjust the One Eighty Toyota Tundra to make it handle exactly how he needs it. If he’s wrestling the truck to get through the corners, it will be a long 200 miles at that track. The guys on the One Eighty team put a lot of work into getting our truck ready for this weekend; we’re taking a brand new chassis and one that we believe will perform very well at Darlington [Raceway].”
