NOTES:
The WinStar World Casino 350 at Texas Motor Speedway is the 20th race on the 2013 Camping World Truck Series schedule.

There have been 31 truck races held at Texas. The series competed there once each season from 1997-98 and then twice each year since.

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. He is not entered in this race.

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 30. 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.

Four active drivers scored their first career truck wins at Texas: Travis Kvapil (Oct. 10, 2001), Brendan Gaughan (June 7, 2002), Clint Bowyer (Nov. 3, 2006) and Jeb Burton (June 7, 2013).

The next-to-last race of the season is the Nov. 8 Lucas Oil 150 at Phoenix International Raceway. Brian Scott won last year's race there.
