2014 Bowmanville: Brennan Newberry NASCAR Truck Race Preview

For Brennan Newberry's sixth start of the 2014 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season, he and the No.9 NTS Motorsports Qore-24 Chevrolet Silverado team packed their passports, boarded a plane in Statesville, NC and took off to the event that makes the truck schedule an international undertaking, Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, in Bowmanville, Ontario. The event, The Chevrolet Silverado 250, would be split into a two day showing on the 2.459 mile road course with both practice sessions and qualifying held on Saturday. It was evident early on that Newberry, making his second career start at the venue formally known as "Mosport", was going to be one of the front runners throughout the weekend. Just over halfway through the first of two sessions, Newberry jumped to the top of the leaderboard and would set the bar throughout most of the day with a lap time of 1:21.595. As final practice drew to a close, Newberry had tallied only nine total laps, yet he and his Crew Chief, Ryan McKinney were confident enough to end their runs early and begin making final preparations for knockout qualifying. With a lap time of 1:21.576, the No.9 sat 13th as the clock expired on the final practice.

For Knockout Qualifying, NASCAR would hold court for two sessions on track. The first round would consist of 30 minutes for teams to post their fastest speeds to secure themselves a spot in the Top 12 that would move them into the second session. Posting a speed that secured the 13th starting sport for the No. 9 Qore-24 team, McKinney would hold Newberry from on making any additional runs to break into the top-12, confident he could make his way through to the front, after falling just outside the cutoff. Missing the chance to advance to the second round by only 0.039 seconds, NTS Motorsports and their No.9 Qore-24 entry would start 13th for the 64 lap main event the following afternoon. As fans lined the 10-turn asphalt road-course for the Chevrolet Silverado 250 on Sunday morning, drivers attended the final order of business before the green flag, the mandatory Driver and Crew Chiefs meeting, to go over race procedures and welcome esteemed guests to the track.

With the driver's buckled in and ready to the race, as soon as the green flag was displayed, Newberry immediately began picking his way through the field, and had worked his way to just inside the top ten for his first pit stop of the day for fuel and tires. At the halfway mark, lap 32 of 64, Newberry was running strong in the 9th spot and continuing to make passes and hit his marks. With only 18 laps until the finish, the caution flag would be displayed for the first time and would bunch the field into a tight group, for what would prove to be a dramatic finish for all spots on the grid. As the checkered flag drew near, Newberry was running the fastest lap times of all of the competitors during the closing circuits and would pick off more trucks on his way to a very strong 7th place finish. At the conclusion of a strong weekend for the Kernersville, NC based NTS Motorsports team, which saw both of their drivers finish in the Top 10 and have their career best NCWTS finishes, momentum is riding high going into the final stretch of the season.

Brennan Newberry's Post-Race Thoughts: "My weekend at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park could not have been much better for me and my Qore-24 Purifier team. Once the track was green for practice, my No.9 Chevrolet Silverado went to the top of the board. It was an incredible feeling to be that fast off the lift gate. Qualifying 13th wasn't ideal, but my crew chief Ryan McKinney assured me that we had the truck to get to the front. My team gave me some great pit stops, we had an awesome strategy to be one step ahead of the competition, and I kept fighting until the end. To come home with my best career finish of 7th and have my teammate Gray Gaulding finish inside the top 5, is outstanding. I am going to build on this momentum and confidence my team and I gained this weekend through the rest of the season."

Ryan McKinney's Post-Race Thoughts: "After Canada I couldn't be more proud of my NTS Motorsports No.9 team. Brennan has turned a lot of road-course laps throughout the last month or so and that track time really paid off in Bowmanville. We were fast all weekend and we kept getting better after each run in practice. We didn't get quite the results we wanted in qualifying, but we used strategy and a fast Chevrolet Silverado to make our way to inside the top 10. It was a great weekend for us as an organization and I can't wait to use what we learned in Chicagoland."
