NOTES:
The North Carolina Education Lottery at Rockingham Speedway is the third race on the 2013 Camping World Series schedule.

Known as "The Rock," this 1-mile racetrack has 22 degrees of banking in turns 1 and 2 and 25 degrees in turns 3 and 4, as well as 8 degrees of banking on the front and back straightaways.

Rockingham hosted a total of 78 Sprint Cup races from 1965, the year it opened, to 2004 and 42 Nationwide events from 1982-2004.

Kasey Kahne won the inaugural truck race at Rockingham one year ago. Kahne, a Sprint Cup Series regular, had to start from the rear of the field since he did not qualify the truck. He was competing in the Cup event the night before at Texas Motor Speedway. Kahne took the lead on lap 155 and then ran in front for the remaining 45 circuits to claim his fourth career truck win. Nelson Piquet Jr. started on the pole and led the way for most of this race, but Piquet received a pit-road speeding penalty in the late going and fell out of contention. He finished seventh. Kahne is not entered in this year's race.

The next Camping World Truck Series event is the April 20 SFP 250 at Kansas Speedway. James Buescher is the defending race winner.
