At lap 73 of 150 in Saturday night’s American Ethanol 225 at Chicagoland Speedway, Ron Hornaday will have completed 50,000 laps (52,363.6 miles) of NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) competition in 310 starts. This is enough miles to circle the world more than twice.
Going for 52… After last weekend’s second-place finish at Iowa Speedway, Hornaday proved he can still lead laps and contend for wins. Chicagoland Speedway, like Iowa Speedway, is one of the eight elusive tracks on the NCWTS schedule that the series veteran has not won at. Therefore, Hornaday heads to the 1.5-mile D-shaped oval with confidence and a burning desire to get back to victory lane and claim his 52nd series win.
Windy City Stats… In three starts at Chicagoland Speedway, Hornaday has led 11 laps en route to one top-five finish, third (2010). The series all-time race winner has an average start of 9.7, an average finish of 8.0 and has completed 100 percent of laps attempted (454 of 454).
