NOTES:
The UNOH 200 at Bristol Motor Speedway is the 13th race on the 2013 Camping World Truck Series schedule.

This will be the 16th time the Truck Series has competed at this 0.533-mile, concrete-surfaced racetrack. The series ran there once each year from 1995-99 and then took a three-year hiatus before returning in 2003. The track has been on the schedule every season since then.

Kyle Busch, Ron Hornaday Jr. and Timothy Peters are those drivers on the entry list that have won a previous truck race at Bristol. Busch leads all drivers with three wins. Hornaday has two victories, and Peters won last year's race, leading all 204 laps.

Hornaday has the most truck starts at Bristol with 13, followed by David Starr with 11 and Matt Crafton with 10. Hornaday's wins there came in 1997 and '98. He led all 200 laps in the '97 race.

The race winner at Bristol has started from the pole four times, which is more than any other starting position there. Busch most recently did it in 2010.

Travis Kvapil won the 2003 race from the 12th starting position, which is the furthest back a driver has started and won at Bristol.

The closest margin of victory in a truck race at Bristol occurred in 1995 when Joe Ruttman beat Geoffrey Bodine to the finish line by just 0.13 seconds.

Six drivers on the entry list made their first career truck starts at Bristol: Johnny Sauter (2003), Nate Monteith (2007), Jake Crum (2010), Miguel Paludo (2010), Jeff Agnew (2011) and Ryan Blaney (2012).

The next race is the Sept. 1 inaugural Chevrolet Silverado 250 at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park in Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada.
