Laps: 50 

Miles: 125

Total purse: $455,131 (2010 figures)

Defending Polesitter: Elliott Sadler

Defending Champion: Elliott Sadler (not defending)

 

NASCAR's Camping World Truck Series will follow the Sprint Cup Series to Pocono Raceway this weekend for the Good Sam RV Emergency Road Service 125. With only 50 laps around the Tricky Triangle, it is sure to be a shootout with qualifying carrying extra importance.

 

Last year’s winner Elliott Sadler gets it.

 

He won that race from the pole after battling Kasey Kahne in a green-white-checker finish. Fortunately for this year’s competitors, Sadler will be in Iowa running in the Nationwide Series race but the NCWTS drivers will have their hands full of Sprint Cup Series regulars.

 

Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick return and are joined by Mark Martin, competing in the series for the first time since 2007. Busch leads the owner's standings by 33 points over Harvick. The two were tame at Dover following their altercation, but Harvick has something to prove this weekend and chances are, things will heat up on the track.

 

ThorSport Racing will break a record this weekend becoming the team with the most series starts. Roush Fenway Racing currently holds the top spot with 353 NCWTS starts, but will be surpassed by ThorSport Saturday. 

 

ThroSport driver and current points leader Johnny Sauter has seen his lead diminish recently to Austin Dillon. There are now only four points that separate first and second place. Underdog James Buescher has proven that he is a threat to the championship as well. After failing to qualify for Phoenix, he has steadily advanced through the ranks and not sits 20 points out of the lead in third.

 

Sauter, Dillon, Buescher, Timothy Peters, and Cole Whitt round out your Top 5.

 

Catch the Good Sam RV 125 this Saturday at 1:00pm ET on Speed Channel.

 

NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series next heads to Michigan International Speedway on August 20th for the VFW 200.
