Cameron Hayley Race Recap:

Cameron Hayley, driver of the No. 13 RIDE TV Toyota Tundra, made his second start at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Saturday’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series DC Solar 350. Posting the 15th, and 14th-fastest times in Saturday morning’s two practice sessions, Hayley earned the ninth starting position for the 146-lap event in qualifying Saturday afternoon. Running as high as second, Hayley fought a tight-handling Toyota Tundra throughout the first 95 laps. Crew chief Eddie Troconis brought the ThorSport Racing driver to pit road, under caution, for scheduled stops, at laps 39, and 95 for four tires, fuel and adjustments. Unfortunately, following the last restart, at lap 98, Hayley’s RIDE TV Tundra swung to the, “wrecking loose,” side and Hayley went from ninth to 18th, even losing a lap to the race leaders, late in the event. The Calgary, Alberta, Canada native would settle for an 18th-place finish behind race winner, Tyler Reddick.
