NOTES:
The Lucas Oil 150 at Phoenix International Raceway is the 21st of 22 races on the 2013 Camping World Truck Series schedule.

There have been 22 truck races held at Phoenix. The series competed there twice each season from 1995-98 and then once year since.

Mike Skinner won the inaugural truck race at Phoenix, the Skoal Copper World, on Feb. 5, 1995.

Kevin Harvick holds the record for most truck victories at Phoenix with four. Harvick is not on the entry list for this race.

Ron Hornaday Jr. has the most truck starts at Phoenix with 18. Hornaday has won two races there (April 1998 and March 1999).

The winner of the truck race at Phoenix has started from the pole five times. Johnny Benson most recently did it in 2006.

The closest margin of victory in a truck race at Phoenix occurred in 2002 when Harvick beat Ted Musgrave to the finish line by only 0.022 seconds.

Three drivers have scored their first career trucks wins at Texas: Skinner (1995), Jack Sprague (1996) and Harvick (2002).

The 2013 Camping World Truck season concludes with the Nov. 15 Ford EcoBoost 200 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Cale Gale won last year's event there.
