NOTES:
The WinStar World Casino 400 at Texas Motor Speedway is the seventh race on the 2013 Camping World Truck Series schedule.

This 1.5-mile racetrack has 24 degrees of banking in all four turns and five degrees of banking on both the front and back straightaways. The length of the front straight is 2,250 feet, and the back straight measures 1,330 feet.

There have been 30 truck races held at Texas. The series competed there once each season from 1997-98 and then twice each year since then. The second truck event at Texas this season is scheduled for Nov. 1.

Kenny Irwin Jr. won the inaugural truck race at Texas, the Pronto Auto Parts 400, on June 6, 1997.

Todd Bodine holds the record for most truck victories at Texas with six. Bodine's most recent win at this track came in June 2010.

Brendan Gaughan won both truck races at Texas during the 2002 and '03 seasons. Gaughan became the first driver in the series to win four consecutive races at the same track. He is driving the No. 62 Chevrolet for Richard Childress Racing this year.

Texas-native David Starr has the most truck starts at this track with 29. Starr did not compete in the first race there in '97.

Mike Skinner holds the record for most poles at Texas with five.

The winner of the truck race at Texas has started from the pole five times. Bodine most recently did it in June 2007.

The next race is the June 27 UNOH 225 at Kentucky Speedway. Timothy Peters won last year's event there.
