• For the 16th stop of the 2013 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) season, teams will unload at the 1.5-mile track of Chicagoland Speedway for the EnjoyIllinios.com 225 under the lights Friday night where Ron Hornaday will pilot the No. 9 Anderson's Maple Syrup/Jewel-Osco Chevrolet Silverado for his fifth-career start at the track. In his previous four starts at the Illinois track, Hornaday has one top-five finish, three top-10 finishes and has an average start of 10.8 and average finish of 7.8. His worst finish in four starts is 11th in 2009.
• With 15 races in the record books for the 2013 season, Hornaday currently sits 11th in the NCWTS Driver Point Standings with three top-five finishes, seven top-10 finishes and has completed 98 percent of laps attempted (2,308 of 2,356 laps) and led 21 laps.
• Last week for the series' second trip to the .875-mile track of Iowa Speedway, Hornaday and the No. 9 team started the Fan Appreciation 200 from the 13th position and after two attempts at a green-white-checker finish, crossed the line in the 17th spot on lap 212.
• This week Hornaday will be behind the wheel of the No. 9 Anderson's Maple Syrup/Jewel-Osco Chevrolet Silverado for the EnjoyIllinois.com 225 at Chicagoland Speedway.
• Catch the EnjoyIllinois.com 225 from Chicagoland Speedway on MRN, Sirius Satellite Radio Channel 90 and Fox Sports 1 on Friday, September 13, beginning at 8:00 p.m. ETwith the race scheduled to start at 8:30 p.m. ET.

Thoughts from Driver Ron Hornaday:
"Once again, it will be great to have Anderson's Maple Syrup on board the No. 9 Chevrolet this weekend, with associate sponsorship from Jewel-Osco. The track has different characteristics than any track we have raced on this year, so this will be a unique race for the NCWTS. Chicagoland is aging and lacking grip, so it will be very challenging to drive. I'm looking forward to getting there and competing for the win."

Words of Wisdom from Crew Chief Bruce Cook:
"I have raced Chicago quite a bit in the past and have had the good fortune to lead laps there and finish in the top-five several times. We are taking the Pocono truck that we finished sixth with, so I know it will be very good to us at Chicagoland. Ron (Hornaday) enjoys the track, which gives our Anderson's Maple Syrup team a ton of confidence going into the Friday night race."
