Drivers to watch for: Camping World Truck Series

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series took a break over the Memorial Day weekend and now the drivers are back on the track ready to take on the Kansas Speedway. A note of importance, the NCWTS is also celebrating its 400th start today. The qualifying order rules have changed, instead of going out to qualify after drivers randomly draw a number, they are going out based on practice speeds, from the slowest to the fastest. The race is scheduled for Saturday at 1 P.M. central time, 2 P.M. eastern time and will air on SPEED.

Johanna Long may be sitting 126 points behind the leader but her season isn't one to be ashamed of. This 19 year-old truck series rookie won the Snowball Derby last winter and today in Kansas, she ran a strong qualifying lap, but her No. 20 Toyota Tundra will start 21st in today's O'Reilly Auto Parts 250 race. Long is a true racer at heart; her first championship started as young as 15 as the 1st Female Driver to Win the Inaugural Sunoco Gulf Coast Championship for Super Late Models; she's the Track Record Holder-Snowball Derby; Super Late Model Champion; she's the 2009 Blizzard Series Champion
and last season she was the Snowball Derby Champion.
