The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will be featured at Pocono Raceway this weekend. Along with series regulars, Sprint Cup drivers Brad Keselowski, Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch and Austin Dillon will take part in Saturday's Pocono Mountains 150 before competing in Sunday's Windows 10 400.

Dillon and Harvick have been successful racing in the NCWTS at Pocono. Dillon enters this weekend as the defending race winner while Harvick had a victory in 2011. This will be Harvick's first NCWTS start since 2013. He will be driving for 17-year-old Cole Custer. NASCAR rules state that a driver must be at least 18 years of age to compete in the national series on tracks longer than one mile - The Tricky Triangle is 2.5 miles.

After winning the 2013 Pocono NCWTS race as an owner with driver Ryan Blaney, Keselowski is looking for a win of his own. This will be Keselowski's fourth start of the season in the Truck Series. Busch returns to the Truck Series for his first start of the 2015 season and is looking for a win after finishing second in his first start at Pocono in 2011.

Earlier this month NASCAR announced a new qualifying format that the NCWTS will use at all tracks 1.5 miles and larger. During the first round each driver will make one timed lap. The top 12 drivers will continue into the final round, where each driver will take another single timed lap. The driver with the fastest lap will earn the pole.


Qualifying is scheduled for August 1 at 10am. Catch the NASCAR Camping World Truck race this Saturday at 1pm on FoxSports1.
