NOTES:
The SFP 250 at Kansas Speedway is the fourth race on the 2013 Camping World Truck Series schedule.

James Buescher won last year's truck race at Kansas. Buescher passed Brad Keselowski for the lead with 11 laps remaining and then held it for his first victory in his 76th truck start. He won three more races during the 2012 season to capture the series championship.

There have been 12 different winners in as many truck races at Kansas. Ricky Hendrick won the inaugural event there on July 7, 2001.

Matt Crafton is the only driver who has competed in all 12 truck races at Kansas. Crafton's best finish there is fifth, which came in 2004.

Ron Hornaday Jr. leads all drivers with three poles at Kansas. Hornaday is the only driver who has won from the pole at this track, doing so in 2008.

Todd Bodine (2005), Buescher (2012), Hornaday (2008) and Johnny Sauter (2010) are those drivers on the entry list for the SFP 250 that have won a previous truck race at Kansas.

The next race is the May 17 North Carolina Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Justin Lofton won last year's event there.
