Track Facts — Canadian Tire Motorsports Park
2.459-mile asphalt road course with 10 turns
Chassis Facts: Shannon Rursch and the Kyle Busch Motorsports 54 team have chosen chassis KBM-005 which most recently raced at Eldora Speedway. With 12 starts, KBM-005 has three wins.
From the Driver’s Seat with Gray Gaulding: “This is what I have been dreaming of, racing for Kyle Busch Motorsports in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and going back to my favorite track on the circuit. I’m excited to work with Shannon and all the guys on the 54 team, I have been learning from Kyle (Busch) and spending time in the shop learning and working with all the KBM guys.”
On top of Box with Crew Chief Shannon Rursch: “Each track has its own tendencies so there are oval tracks where track position and fuel mileage are important, and those are the two keys at any road course. Calling the race at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park will be different than calling a race at a short track, but the strategy for it won’t be much different than the strategy at Pocono, or Michigan. The keys to having a good race will be keeping the truck on track and fuel mileage.”
