Ready to Hit the Race Track?
The Drivers of the Nascar Craftsman Truck Series are already there..
It's practice time for the O'Reilly 200 at the Memphis MotorSports Park.
The Truck Series is a proving ground for future stars on the Sprint Cup Circuit..like Greg Biffle and Travis Kvapil.
When not in the Trucks, Mike Skinner also drives the Cup Circuit....but Johnny Benson is the Crafstman Series Points Leader.
Benson says about the Memphis Track:
"It's a place that you gotta be smooth but have enough forward bite to get off the corner. And that's pretty tough to do here at this race track."
"I think Johnny hit on it."
Adds Mike Skinner:
"This is really more of a finesse track than a point and stab."
Skinner, Benson and teammate Michael Annett all celebrate birthdays this week...so maybe they'll get the BIG PRESENT tomorrow night.
Qualifying Saturday starts at 5pm..
The Green Flag drops 8pm Saturday at the Memphis MotorSports Park.
