What You need to ‘Noah’bout

  • •Coming off two strong performances in the NASCAR Xfinity Series and another in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East in the month of April, Noah Gragson returns to his full-time job as a championship contender in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this weekend at Dover (Del.) International Speedway. While the Truck Series was on a month-long hiatus from action, Gragson kept sharp behind the wheel by competing in other NASCAR Series. He captured the pole, led 54 laps and finished third in the K&N Pro Series East race at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway April 14. The following weekend he recorded an impressive runner-up finish in his Xfinity Series debut at Richmond (Va.) Raceway. The talented teenager followed it up with another impressive run, posting a fourth-place finish in the Xfinity Series race at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway last weekend.
  • •Gragson will make his first foray into double-duty action this weekend at the Monster Mile. In addition to driving the No. 18 Safelite AutoGlass Tundra in the Truck Series event Friday, he will make his third start behind the wheel of the No. 18 Switch Camry for Joe Gibbs Racing in Saturday’s Xfinity Series race. In last year’s Truck Series event at Dover, he started from the eighth position and finished ninth, so he’s hoping to improve upon that finish with the extra track time he’ll get with Xfinity Series practice on Friday.
  • •Crew chief Ryan “Rudy” Fugle called the shots for Kyle Busch’s victory in Truck Series action at the one-mile oval in 2014.
  • •The Las Vegas native enters Friday’s event ranked fifth in the NCWTS championship standings, 35 tallies behind points leader Johnny Sauter. Gragson has earned two playoff points through the first four races in 2018, winning the First Stage at both Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway and Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway. The 19-year-old driver has led at least one lap in three of the four races this season and boasts a best finish of second at Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway.
  • Safelite AutoGlass, the nation’s largest provider of vehicle glass repair and replacement services, will adorn the hood of Gragson’s No. 18 Tundra for all 23 events on the NCWTS schedule in 2018.
