NOTES:
The Lucas Oil 200 at Dover International Speedway is the sixth race on the 2013 Camping World Truck Series schedule.

The series has competed at Dover once each year since 2000. Kyle Busch is the only driver with multiple truck victories at this racetrack. Busch won there in 2005 and '11.

Todd Bodine won last year's rain-shortened race at Dover. Before the precipitation had arrived, Bodine had bounced back from a spin and a blown tire that occurred in the early going. He had capitalized on pit strategy and grabbed the lead before it rained heavily on the track, eventually forcing NASCAR to end the race 53 laps short of its scheduled 200-lap distance. The two-time series champion has not won a race since then.

Kurt Busch won the inaugural truck race at Dover, the MBNA 200, on Sept. 22, 2000. Busch started on the pole for that event.

In 2001, Scott Riggs started on the pole and won a truck race at this track. No driver has won from that starting position there since then.

Matt Crafton, the current points leader, has the most truck starts at Dover with 12. Crafton did not compete in the first race there in 2000. He has yet to win at this track, but has finished no worse than seventh in the previous five events there.

The next race is the June 7 WinStar World Casino 400k at Texas Motor Speedway. Johnny Sauter is the defending race winner.
