Joey Coulter and Richard Childress Racing’s No. 22 Steak-umm Chevrolet team finished fourth in Thursday evening’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series UNOH 225 at Kentucky Speedway, marking the team’s fourth top-10 finish of the 2012 season. The Miami Springs, Fla. native started the race from the 16th position and raced his way into the top 10 within the first four laps of the event.

The Steak-umm Chevrolet was running in the eighth position when a lap-63 caution period prompted crew chief Harold Holly to direct Coulter down pit road for a four-tire stop with chassis adjustments to combat a lack of grip on the slick race track. The over-the-wall crew executed a fast stop and returned Coulter to the track in the fourth position, and the 2011 Camping World Truck Series Rookie of the Year raced his way into second by lap 80.

Coulter reported the No. 22 Steak-umm Chevrolet drove smoother once he was in clean air, but he lost track position following a lap-103 caution period when he lost three positions on pit road, positioning him fifth for a lap-107 restart. In the later stages of the race, Coulter battled for position in traffic, ultimately finishing seventh. With his fourth top-10 finish of the 2012 season, Coulter is now seventh in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver championship standings, 50 points behind the leader.

Points – 7 

JOEY COULTER QUOTE: “The No. 22 team once again provided me with a fast Steak-umm Chevrolet today. Our seventh-place finish was disappointing considering how strong the truck was through the first half of the race, but all of the pieces are in place, and our first victory can’t be far away. I’m looking forward to getting back to it in two weeks at Iowa (Speedway).”
