Gearing up for Gateway...The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) is back to it this weekend in Madison, Illinois, just outside St. Louis, Missouri, for the Drivin' For Linemen 200 at Gateway Motorsports Park. NCWTS veteran Ron Hornaday Jr. is set to make his ninth-career start at the 1.25-mile oval, looking to capture his second-career victory at Gateway. In his previous eight starts at Gateway, Hornaday has scored one win, three top fives, three top 10s and led 344 laps.

Gotta Have a Rheem...At Gateway, Hornaday will once again pilot the No. 30 Rheem Comfort Products Chevrolet for Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM). Rheem Manufacturing Company (www.rheem.com) is privately held with headquarters in Atlanta. In its 88th year of operation, the company manufactures a full line of high-quality residential and commercial heating and cooling systems; tank, tankless, solar, and heat pump water heaters; swimming pool heaters and commercial boilers throughout North America and world markets. The company's premium brands, including Raypak, Ruud and Rheem, have been recognized with countless industry and consumer awards for reliability, innovative design and high quality. Rheem is now in its eighth consecutive year as a NASCAR sponsor.

This Week's Silverado...The No. 30 Rheem Comfort Products team will unload chassis TSM-225 at Gateway this weekend. This is the same truck that Hornaday piloted to a ninth-place finish at Martinsville Speedway earlier this year.

Watch and Listen...The Drivin' For Linemen 200 can be seen live on Saturday, June 14 on FOX Sports 1. Race Coverage begins at 8:00 p.m. EDT, and the event can also be heard live on MRN Radio as well as SiriusXM Radio, Channel 90.

Previous Race Recap... Hornaday began the WinStar World Casino & Resort 400 in the 10th position. By lap 33, the NCWTS veteran had worked his way up to the fourth position and after the first pit stop of the night, the four-time NCWTS champion was the race leader. For the remainder of the race Hornaday raced in-and-around the top five, making a daring three-wide pass to retake the lead on the race's final restart. Unfortunately, fuel strategy came into play and Hornaday was forced to pit road with a handful of laps left. The pit stop relegated Hornaday to a sixth-place finish, the fourth top-10 on the season for the No. 30 team.

Ron Hornaday on coming back to Gateway:
"I'm excited to get back to Gateway for the first time since 2010. We've had some success here in the past, especially back in 2008 when we won this race. Hopefully we can build upon the fast truck we had out in Texas and my previous experience at Gateway to put together another solid finish this weekend, perhaps even a win for Turner Scott Motorsports."

Ben Kennedy
No. 31 Turner Scott Motorsports Silverado
Gateway Motorsports Park - Drivin' For Linemen 200
June 14, 2014
Gateway To The West...The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) makes a triumphant return to Gateway Motorsports Park, located just outside of St. Louis, Mo., for the first time since 2010. Although he has never made a start at the 1.25-mile track, Ben Kennedy will face a relatively even playing field, as only nine drivers in Saturday's race have previous starts at the track.

Arch You Glad You Came?...If you're attending this weekend's race at Gateway, be sure to stop by the NCWTS autograph session to meet Kennedy and many other Truck Series drivers. The session will take place on Saturday, June 14 from 2:15-3:15 p.m. local time in front of the Kartplex on the Turns 1 and 2 side of the infield.

This Week's Silverado...Kennedy and the No. 31 Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM) crew will utilize chassis TSM-228 this weekend at Gateway Motorsports Park. TSM-228 was most recently run by Kennedy at Martinsville Speedway, where he earned an impressive third-place finish.

Watch and Listen...The Drivin' For Linemen 200 can be seen live on Saturday, June 14 on FOX Sports 1. Race coverage will begin at 8:00 p.m. EDT, and the event can also be heard live on MRN Radio as well as SiriusXM Satellite Radio, channel 90.

Previous Race Recap...Making his debut in the Lone Star State, Kennedy and his TSM team worked hard on the handling of the No. 31 Chevy Silverado in the early portion of the race, advancing from the 18th spot into the top 10. However, a long green-flag run in the second half of the event changed the game for the NCWTS field, ultimately resulting in a fuel-mileage race to the finish. Forced to make a green-flag pit stop for fuel in the closing laps with several of the leaders, Kennedy was forced to settle for a 14th-place finish in the WinStar World Casino & Resort 400.

Ben Kennedy on Gateway Motorsports Park:
"This is an exciting one to be a part of. I know when Gateway was taken off the schedule a few years ago, it disappointed a lot of drivers and teams who really loved competing at the track. You never like to lose a good venue in this sport, and I think it's great that the Truck Series branches out to some of the places that Cup and Nationwide don't go, so it's awesome that we got Gateway back. We're bringing our truck from Martinsville, which was a really strong truck and very good at the end of the race, so hopefully we can get another top five with it."

Tayler Malsam
No. 32 Outerwall Silverado
Gateway Motorsports Park - Drivin' For Linemen 200
June 14, 2014

All Roads Lead to Gateway...Tayler Malsam and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) will make their grand return to Gateway Motorsports Park this weekend for the Drivin' For Linemen 200. This race will mark Malsam's fourth of twelve scheduled NCWTS races for Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM) this season in the No. 32 Outerwall Chevrolet. Unlike the majority of the field, Malsam competed at the St. Louis track in 2010, claiming a top-five finish, the best of his season, in his NCWTS track debut along with a top 20 in his NASCAR Nationwide Series start at the 1.25-mile oval.

This Week's Silverado...Crew chief Mike Hillman Jr. and the No. 32 TSM team will unload a familiar chassis this weekend in St. Louis. TSM-231 was driven by Ben Rhodes in the second NCWTS race of the season at Martinsville Speedway and helped the young driver score a top-10 finish in his debut.

Let's Go...This week at Gateway, the No. 32 will be sporting the colors of Outerwall for the fourth of 12 races this year. As the company that brought consumers Redbox® entertainment, Coinstar® money services, and ecoATM® electronics recycling kiosks, Outerwall is leading the next generation of automated retail. With more than 20 years of experience, the company mission is to create a better everyday by delivering breakthrough kiosk experiences that delight consumers and generate revenue for retailers.

Previous Race Recap...Malsam made his third NCWTS start for TSM last Friday night at Texas Motor Speedway. During the weekend's two practice sessions, the No. 32 team took a conservative approach based on Malsam's experience along with crew chief Mike Hillman Jr.'s success at the track, and ranked 13th and 12th-fastest among the field. Malsam then hit the Texas-sized loop in the heat of the day for qualifying and claimed a top-15 starting position. While the 25-year-old showed pure talent on the racetrack once again, fuel strategy at the 1.5-mile track forced Malsam, along with several top contenders, to make a late-race pit stop that resulted in a 13th-place finish for the No. 32 Outerwall Chevrolet.

Watch and Listen...Don't miss any of the action as the NCWTS returns to Gateway Motorsports Park. The Drivin' For Linemen 200 can be seen live on Saturday, June 14 beginning at 8:00 p.m. EDT on FOX Sports 1. The race can also be heard live on MRN Radio as well as SiriusXM Satellite Radio, channel 90.

Tayler Malsam on Racing at Gateway Motorsports Park
"I'm looking forward to giving Gateway another shot this weekend. I competed there back in 2010 in both Trucks and Nationwide, so I think the familiarity with the track will help me out during the race. It's definitely a tough track; the last time I was there, it was a wreck fest. Hopefully we can have a night of clean, fun short-track racing and end with our Outerwall Chevy up front."
