NOTES:
The Ford EcoBoost 200 at Homestead-Miami Speedway is the 22nd and final race on the 2013 Camping World Truck Series schedule.

There have been 17 truck races held at Homestead. The series has competed there once each year since 1996. Dave Rezendes won the inaugural event at this track, the Florida Dodge Dealers 400, in '96.

Ron Hornaday Jr. and Rick Crawford share the record for most truck starts at Homestead with 13 each. Crawford is not entered in this weekend's race. Hornaday is driving the No. 34 Chevrolet for Turner Scott Motorsports. He was released from his ride at NTS Motorsports following last Friday's event at Phoenix International Raceway.

Todd Bodine is the only driver with multiple truck victories at Homestead. Bodine won there in 2005 and '08. He is not entered in this year's race.

The winner of the truck race at Homestead has started from the pole only once. Bobby Hamilton did it in 2003.

Cale Gale is the only driver on the entry list that scored his first career truck victory at Homestead. Gale beat Kyle Busch to the finish line by only 0.014 seconds, which is the closest margin of victory in a truck race there. Crawford (1998), Mike Wallace (1999) and Ted Musgrave (2001) claimed their maiden wins in the series at Homestead as well.

The 2014 Camping World Truck Series schedule begins with the Feb. 21 NextEra Energy 250 at Daytona International Speedway. Johnny Sauter won this race in 2013.
