-A A +A

The sound of roaring engines will once again be heard this weekend at Kentucky Speedway.
The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will be on the track Friday night for the running of the Kentucky 201.
The race gets underway at 7:30 p.m.
The NASCAR Nationwide Series will practice on the track twice on Friday afternoon.
James Buescher captured the checkered flag back in June during the UNOH 225. Brad Keselowski finished second followed by Ty Dillon in third.
Dillon will come to Kentucky as the points leader and eight points ahead of Timothy Peters and 11  points in front of Buescher.
The trucks were in action on Saturday night in Iowa where Ryan Blaney became the youngest driver to win a Camping World Truck Series race. The 18-year old won the Ethanol 200 at Iowa Speedway, edging out Ty Dillon. Ryan Blaney is the son of Sprint Cup series driver Dave Blaney.
On Saturday afternoon, it will be the Nationwide Series taking center stage on the big track. The green flag will drop at 4 p.m. for the running of the Kentucky 300.
Austin Dillon dominated the Feed the Children 300 in June. He won the race by nearly 10 seconds over second-place finisher Kurt Busch. Kevin Harvick finished third.
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. accomplished a double victory of sorts on Saturday afternoon in Chicago.
The driver won the Dollar General 300 at Chicagoland Speedway and in doing so took over the points lead from Elliot Sadler. Stenhouse Jr. won his fifth race of the year by getting to the finish line ahead of Kyle Busch. Austin Dillon finished third.
The Camping World Truck Series race can be seen on the SPEED Channel while the Nationwide Series race can be watched on ESPN. Tickets are still available for both races.
