Inside the Truck with Austin Dillon:
"Kentucky Speedway is probably one of my favorite tracks in NASCAR because I've always run well here, performance-wise. I think my dirt racing background must have something to do with it because the track is so rough and has some bumps to it-characteristics that play well for me. There is a line that I really like to run there. I earned my first win in the NASCAR Nationwide Series at Kentucky Speedway. I've had some really good runs in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series there, too. One race I remember finishing second. Another race we were in contention for the win when the hood flipped up and I had to make an unscheduled pit stop under green. Jeff Hensley and the NTS crew have given me some really great Chevrolets this year so I can't wait to get to Kentucky Speedway and run in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series on Thursdaynight."

From the Box with Crew Chief Jeff Hensley:
"I'm glad to have Austin (Dillon) back in the truck this week, he has done a terrific job helping get this program headed in the right direction. We have had some really fast trucks and he has had a lot of success at Kentucky, hopefully we can put the right formula together for Thursday night."

Chassis Facts: Jeff Hensley has chosen chassis NTS-18. This is the same chassis the Justin Lofton qualified on the pole and finished second with at Texas Motor Speedway on June 6th.
