Weather shortened the Lucas Oil 200 at Dover International Speedway to 147 laps, leaving Joey Coulter and the No.22 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet to settle for an 11th-place finish Friday evening. Coulter proved the speed of the No. 22 Chevrolet early in the day when he posted the second best qualifying lap of 22.881 seconds, one tenth of a second behind pole winner and RCR teammate Kevin Harvick. After starting the race from the second position, Coulter struggled with a tight-handling condition off the corners and was able to pit under caution on lap 29 for adjustments. Restarting from the 11th position, the 21-year-old settled into his rhythm and began to climb back toward the front of the field. While rain threatened on-track activities all day, the caution flew when the rain set in just past the halfway mark, with Coulter running in the 10th position. Following a brief red flag, rain subsided and green-flag racing resumed on lap 124. When the rain came again, there would be no restart, and the race was called on lap 147 with Coulter finishing in 11th position. With his fourth top-15 finish of the 2012 season, the Miami Springs, Fla., native remains 10th in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver point championship standings. Start – 2           Finish – 11       Laps Led – 0    Points – 10 Joey Coulter on his race: “The No.22 RCR Chevrolet was fast tonight. Harold (Holly) and the rest of the team were working on getting it to its best handling condition with each pit stop we made. It’s just really unfortunate that the rain came and we didn’t get a chance to finish the race. The truck was capable of a top-10 if we had been able to run all 200 laps.”
