Richard Childress Racing’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series History:  In 284 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts, RCR has earned 27 wins, 37 pole awards, 106 top-five finishes and 175 top-10 finishes. RCR also earned the inaugural series championship in 1995 with Mike Skinner, and again with Austin Dillon in 2011. The organization has an average starting position of 9.6 and an average finishing position of 10.2. RCR at Dover International Speedway: Richard Childress Racing has six previous Camping World Truck Series starts at Dover International Speedway collecting one pole award, two top-five and four top-10 finishes. The Welcome, N.C.-based organization holds a 7.2 average starting position, coupled with an 8.5 average finishing position and has completed 99.4 percent (1,039 of 1,045) of the laps contested. Points Racin’: With five Camping World Truck Series races completed in 2013, Dillon is third in the driver championship point standings, trailing the leader by 27 markers, while Brendan Gaughan is fourth in the standings, 31 points outside the top spot. The No. 3 team is fourth in the owner championship point standings and the No. 62 team is fifth. Catch the Action: Flag-to-flag coverage of the Lucas Oil 200 at Dover International Speedway is scheduled to be televised live on Friday, May 31 beginning at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time on SPEED and broadcast live on the Motor Racing Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio. Ty Dillon No. 3 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet Silverado Event Preview Fact Sheet This Week’s Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet at Dover International Speedway: Ty Dillon will pilot chassis No. 019 from the Richard Childress Racing stable in Friday night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Lucas Oil 200 at Dover International Speedway. This RCR-prepared Chevrolet was driven by Dillon when he earned his first career Camping World Truck Series pole award at Charlotte Motor Speedway last May and finished 10th. Monster Mile Nuggets:  This weekend’s 200-lap event marks Dillon’s second appearance at the one-mile facility. Dillon started sixth in the 2012 edition of the event. With rain showers blanketing the area, the race was called short of its advertised distance relegating the No. 3 team to a sixth-place finish. Dillon made one start at the one-mile facility in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race in October 2010 where he started 14th and finished 17th. Racing Across the Border: After competing in the Camping World Truck Series event at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Friday, May 17, Dillon and crew chief Marcus Richmond flew to Canada for the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series event on Saturday, May 18 at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park. The Welcome, N.C., native earned a seventh-place finish in his debut at the 2.459-mile road course. Double Duty: Dillon will make his fourth NASCAR Nationwide Series start of the season this weekend in the No. 33 WESCO Chevrolet at Dover International Speedway. The Dover 200 will be televised on ESPN beginning at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Saturday, June 1. This is your first double duty weekend of the year, what are your thoughts heading into the weekend? “I’m looking forward to running in both the NASCAR Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series this weekend. You have to be really focused when running two series. It’s like a light switch. When you’re in the Nationwide Series car, you are focusing only on what that car is doing. Then you turn that switch off and the Camping World Truck Series switch on. It’s a lot of fun to run both series, especially at Dover (International Speedway).” Brendan Gaughan No. 62 South Point Hotel & Casino Chevrolet Silverado Event Preview Fact Sheet This Week’s South Point Hotel & Casino Chevrolet SS at Dover International Speedway: Brendan Gaughan will pilot chassis No. 020 from the Richard Childress Racing NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in Friday’s event at Dover International Raceway. In seasons past, this Chevrolet was utilized by the No. 22 team and was most recently driven to a 13th-place result at Iowa Speedway in September 2012. Tackling the Monster Mile: Gaughan will make his eighth Camping World Truck Series appearance at the one-mile oval on Friday afternoon. Since 2002, the Las Vegas native has collected two top-10 finishes, holds an 18th-place average starting position coupled with an average finishing position of 17.6 and has completed 1,154 of 1,400 (82.4 percent) of the laps contested. Season to Date: Gaughan and the No. 62 South Point Hotel & Casino team head into the Dover International Speedway race weekend hoping to capitalize on the momentum they have with three consecutive top-five finishes. Following the season opener, the veteran driver ranked 28th in the driver championship point standings, but has worked his way up to fourth in just four events and is now only 31 markers behind the leader. Sign Here: Fans will have an opportunity to meet Gaughan and other Camping World Truck Series drivers during a NASCAR autograph session on Friday, May 31 beginning at 1:30 p.m. Eastern Time at the Lucas Oil display at Dover International Raceway. What are your thoughts on racing at Dover International Speedway? “Dover (International Raceway) is one of those tracks that, as a driver, you love to race. You find yourself holding your breath as you drive off a two-story building into a corner. It’s fun, and it’s mean. It usually rains, so you prepare yourself to run on a clean green track, which for me is not a good thing. The rain washes away the rubber on the track, so I can’t go to the high side as quickly as I like. I usually have to burn my own groove in, and it usually takes longer for the top line to come in than I’d like. Once it does, I love the racing Dover produces. You can go so many places and it becomes stupid fast.”
