Camping World Truck Series Playoffs are headed to South Florida

Camping World Truck Series Playoffs are headed to South Florida

Sixth Race in Series Playoffs


The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series has had the last couple of weeks off but will be back for some more Playoff action on Saturday, Oct. 22 at Homestead-Miami Speedway for the Baptist Health 200 at 1 p.m. ET on FS1, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio as the first part of a doubleheader Saturday of racing at the 1.5-mile track. The NASCAR Xfinity Series race, the Contender Boats 300, will follow the Truck race at 4:30 p.m. ET on USA, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.


Homestead-Miami Speedway has hosted 25 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races, producing 22 different race winners and 19 different race winners. The inaugural race was on March 17, 1996 and was won by Dave Rezendes.


Kyle Busch holds the record for most wins (three) and most laps led (394) in the Camping World Truck Series at Homestead-Miami. Matt Crafton is also a known name at the track with the most top 10s (12), most lead lap finishes (16) and most laps completed (2,721).


The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series did not compete at the 1.5-mile track in 2021 so Kyle Busch sits as the track’s most recent winner with his win during the 2020 season. Busch is not entered in this weekend’s Baptist Health 200, leaving ThorSport Racing’s Matt Crafton as the only previous winner entered this weekend.


This will be the first time that Homestead-Miami Speedway will host the sixth race in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoffs. During the Playoff Era (2016-2022), the track was home to the championship race from 2016 to 2019 before landing a spot on the regular season schedule for the 2020-2021 seasons.


Truck Series drivers will kick off this Playoff weekend with practice on Friday, Oct. 21 at 4 p.m. ET followed by Cometic Gasket Pole Qualifying at 4:30 p.m. ET.
