FORT WORTH, Texas - Lance Hooper earned the 26th starting position for the O'Reilly Auto Parts 400 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series (NCTS) race at the Texas Motor Speedway on Thursday, June 10. Ted Musgrave won the pole for the race, which is scheduled for Friday, June 11.

Hooper's best lap around the high-speed, high-banked quad oval in the No. 13 Vassarette/Microtel Chevrolet Silverado was 30.541 seconds (176.811 miles per hour). Musgrave turned 29.839/180.971.

"That was about all we had today," Hooper said. "It was wide open all the way around. We'd like to be starting further up, but it's a long race and we'll have our chance to race into the front half of the field."

The O'Reilly Auto Parts 400 is slated to start at 9 p.m. EDT/6 p.m. PDT Friday, June 11. The race will be telecast live on SpeedChannel and broadcast on the radio affiliates of the Motor Racing Network.
