Sounding Off – Cameron Hayley:

It’s been a roller coaster year so far for our Cabinets by Hayley team. Eddie (Troconis, crew chief) and my entire team have brought fast trucks to each and every race this year, but just keep having problems, out of our control, that take us out of contention. The two races we had nothing happen (Atlanta/Iowa), and had a smooth race, have resulted in a 2nd and 3rd-place finishes, so hopefully we can get that done at Kentucky this week. The repave should be very interesting. If history repeats itself, at newly re-paved tracks, then we are in for a wild ride. It will probably be a one-groove race track, and with it being fresh asphalt, the oils boil up to the surface, and make the race track very slick. None the less, I think we are bringing a great Tundra to Kentucky, and I hope to have an uneventful weekend, and go contend for a win.”

News & Notes:

  • Chassis Chatter…The No. 13 ThorSport Racing team will unload chassis No. 38 for Thursday night’s Buckle Up In Your Truck 225 at Kentucky Speedway. This is the same chassis Hayley piloted three times in 2015, and at Charlotte Motor Speedway (15th), and Texas Motor Speedway (18th) earlier this season.
  • Rearview Mirror – Gateway… Making his second start at GMP in the NCWTS, Hayley started 10th, and worked his way up to the sixth position before being involved in a lap 26 incident with the 51 truck in Turn 3, relegating the sophomore driver to a 24th-place finish.
