NASCAR Truck Series Opens Today

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series opens Friday, February 22,2013. How would you like to be behind the wheel?

The 2013 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series opens today, February 22, 2013 and it will have the No. 17 Tundra driven by Timothy Peters in it. The series will open with the NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona International Raceway.

The truck series is NASCAR’s only series featuring race modified production pickup trucks. While the series doesn’t get all the attention that the larger NASCAR stock car racing series gets, it is pretty cool to see these trucks fly around the track.

In 2012, Peters finished second in the championship points and never fell out of the top three. Along the way, the No. 17 driver tallied two wins, 10 top-five finishes and 16 top-10s, including a memorable flag-to-flag run to take the checkered flag at Bristol.

    Does toyota’s nascar truck use the iforce 5.7 motor?

    • Chris,

      I know it is a V8 engine similar to the 5.7L iForce motor. Yet, I think it is specially bored and refined for the racing series per NASCAR regulations. So … to answer your questions, sort of. 🙂

    It’s a pushrod engine, as required by NASCAR rules for that race.

    • JimmyD,

      Great thanks!

      BTW, I saw the race and Mr. Peters got totally screwed on the last lap. He got pushed right into a T-Bone accident. Oh well, I guess that’s racing.
