Ron Hornaday Jr. on Racing at Bristol Motor Speedway
"I really enjoy racing at Bristol. It's one of those places that's rich in NASCAR history and just a fun place to race. All of the Turner Scott Motorsports teams tested there a few weeks ago and I think our HTPG Refrigeration team learned a lot. It doesn't get much better than racing under the lights at Bristol, and I'm really looking forward to it."

Ben Kennedy
No. 31 Heater.com Silverado
Bristol Motor Speedway - UNOH 200
August 20, 2014

Coming Full Circle...The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) heads to Bristol Motor Speedway for the 13th race of the 2014 season. One year ago, Kennedy made his NCWTS debut at the 0.533-mile 'colosseum' in a combined effort between Ben Kennedy Racing and Turner Scott Motorsports. Kennedy's No. 96 Chevrolet Silverado battled through the typical Bristol beating and banging, ultimately coming home with a 20th-place finish at the challenging track.

Here And Back Again...In addition to making his first-career NCWTS start in Bristol, Kennedy has two previous races under his belt at the Tennessee track in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East. In those two events, Kennedy captured a best start of third (2013) and a best finish of sixth (2012). After racking up two top-10 finishes at the track in the series, Kennedy has an average finish of 8.0.

Watch and Listen...The UNOH 200 can be seen live on Wednesday, August 20 at 8:00 p.m. EDT on FOX Sports 1. The event can also be heard live on MRN Radio as well as SiriusXM Satellite Radio, channel 90.

Previous Race Recap...Kennedy had a strong top-10 run going in his Michigan International Speedway debut, laying down fast lap times and appearing poised to pounce on the top five before being mired multiple laps down due to a late-race pit-road penalty. After running out of fuel just as he was coming in for his final pit stop of the day, Kennedy's Heater.com Chevrolet stalled shortly after exiting the No. 31 pit stall, and he was penalized for pitting outside his assigned box. As a result of the stall and a one-lap penalty, Kennedy ultimately was scored 19th in the Careers for Veterans 200.

Ben Kennedy on Bristol Motor Speedway:
"Bristol is one of the tracks that I really can't wait to get to. Anytime you can go back to a track where you've raced before, it makes such a huge difference. I've got last year's Truck Series race under my belt and two previous K&N starts there, so I can get out on the track without a big learning curve. All of the Turner Scott Motorsports teams tested there a few weeks ago and it went really well, so I really can't wait to see what we can do."

Ben Rhodes
No. 32 Alpha Energy Solutions Silverado
Bristol Motor Speedway - UNOH 200
August 20, 2014

Third Time's A Charm...Making his third of five NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) starts with Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM) this season, Ben Rhodes hopes to take Thunder Valley by storm in the No. 32 Alpha Energy Solutions Chevrolet Silverado. In his previous two NCWTS starts at Martinsville Speedway and Dover International Speedway, the 17-year-old had limited track time due to rain canceling or shortening practice sessions. This time around, Rhodes and crew chief Mike Hillman Jr. hope weather and luck are on their side as they take on the World's Fastest Half Mile.

Experience at Bristol...Although this is Rhodes' first NCWTS start at the East Tennessee track, he's no stranger to success at the lightning-fast loop. In just two-career NASCAR K&N Pro Series East starts at Bristol, Rhodes boasts one pole award, one top-five and two top-10 finishes.

First in Quality. First in Service. First for You...TSM is happy to have Alpha Energy Solutions back aboard theNo. 32 Chevrolet Silverado for the third time this season. Alpha is a self-performing service provider specializing in HVAC, indoor energy solutions, building automation, chillers, boilers, electrical, plumbing and equipment rental. Their coverage area includes eight states surrounding their home base in Kentucky. Check their web site at http://www.alphamechanicalservice.com or find them on Facebook and Twitter (@AlphaMech).

Continuing to show their support for Rhodes and the No. 32 truck team, Alliance Comfort Systems, Kentucky National Guard, Park Community Credit Union and Refrigerant Rescue are also back aboard the TSM truck this week.

Previous Race Recap...The No. 32 TSM truck had a solid run at Michigan International Speedway on Saturday afternoon with Tayler Malsam behind the wheel.

After two solid practice sessions, Malsam advanced to the final round of qualifying and earned his best starting spot of the season. Throughout the 100-lap race, Malsam had the fastest truck on the track, and despite a stellar performance, Malsam came up short, claiming a career-best fourth-place finish after running within the top 10 for the vast majority of the race.

Watch and Listen...Don't miss any of the action as the NCWTS heads to the Last Great Colosseum for a night of high-speed racing under the lights. The UNOH 200 can be seen live on Wednesday, August 20 beginning at 8:00 p.m. EDT on FOX Sports 1, and can also be heard live on MRN Radio as well as SiriusXM Satellite Radio, channel 90.

Ben Rhodes on Racing at Bristol Motor Speedway:
"I can't wait to get back behind the wheel of the No. 32 truck this week at Bristol. This is one of my favorite tracks; we've had some success here in our two K&N races. I'm also looking forward to working with [crew chief Mike] Hillman [Jr.] again because I always walk away with more knowledge after working with him. I hope the weather cooperates with us this time around. Both times I've raced the truck this year, we've only been able to get a few laps on the track before the start of the race. I can't thank all of my sponsors enough for giving me this opportunity to be in this truck this season. I think we've got a good shot at it this week."

Brandon Jones
No. 33 Wolf Pack Silverado
Bristol Motor Speedway - UNOH 200
August 20, 2014

Thunder Valley...The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) heads to World's Fastest Half Mile for the UNOH 200 Presented by ZLoop at Bristol Motor Speedway (BMS). Jones gets set to make his third start of the 2014 season and second at BMS. The 17-year-old made his first-career NCWTS start one year ago at BMS, bringing home a 27th-place finish. Jones also has two-career starts at BMS in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, with a career-best finish of eighth earlier this season.

Wolf Pack...Wolf Pack Energy Services adorns the No. 33 Silverado this week at Bristol. Wolf Pack Energy Services provides a range of products and services to the oilfield industry through two major subsidiaries, Wolf Pack Rentals, which specializes in temporary housing for work crews, along with related services such as electric generators, portable lighting, onsite water and sewage facilities. Along with Xxtreme Pipe services which offers pipe storage, inspection, threading and refurbishment.

Last Time Out...The last time the No. 33 Silverado competed in the NCWTS was back in June at Dover International Speedway. The race began with Jones starting in the 29th position after qualifying was canceled due to rain. As the race began, Jones quickly went to work, making his way through the field, and by the halfway portion of the race, Jones was up in the top 10 and looking for even more with a very fast No. 33 Chevrolet. From that point forward, Jones wouldn't fall outside the top 10 on the racetrack. While running in the top 10, however, Jones fell one lap down to the race leader. A caution on lap 135 put Jones back on the lead lap, as he ran in the free pass position on the track. Jones then went back to work moving forward through the field. A caution on lap 158 brought the leaders down pit road, while Jones remained on track, overtaking the race lead. Jones led for three laps prior to settling into the third position. The Georgia native battled with the NCWTS veterans at the front of the field before eventually finishing the race in the fourth position.

Watch and Listen...The UNOH 200 Presented by ZLoop can be seen live on Wednesday August 20 at 8:00 p.m. EDT on FOX Sports 1. The event can also be heard live on MRN Radio as well as SiriusXM Satellite radio, Channel 90.

Brandon Jones on racing again at Bristol:
"I've been looking forward to getting back to Bristol in a truck since we were there earlier this season in March in the [NASCAR] K&N [Pro Series East] cars. We had a pretty good run, and after the test we did a few weeks ago I'm feeling good about our chances in the No. 33 Wolf Pack Energy Services Silverado. Hopefully we can run up in the top 10 throughout the night and bring home another solid finish."
