NOTES:
The SFP 250 at Kansas Speedway is the third race on the 2014 Camping World Truck Series schedule.

There have been 13 different winners in as many truck races at Kansas. Ricky Hendrick won the inaugural event there on July 7, 2001.

Matt Crafton, the defending series champion, Johnny Sauter and Ron Hornaday Jr. are those drivers on the entry list that have won a truck race at Kansas in the past. Crafton took the checkered flag there last year.

Crafton is the only driver who has competed in all 13 truck races at Kansas.

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

The next race is the May 16 North Carolina Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Kyle Busch won last year's event there.
