‘NCWTS Has First Back to Back Events’
As the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series teams head to their third race of the 2013 season Tim George Jr and Wauters Motorsports ready for some back to back racing action.
The two teamed up for the season opener at Daytona International Speedway in February but then the series was on hiatus until the April 6th event at Martinsville Speedway. George and Wauters Motorsports had a solid run at the Martinsville, Virginia short track posting a 22nd-place finish and look forward to creating momentum heading to Rockingham Speedway Sunday, April 14, 2013.
“I had some difficulty figuring out the cornering on the tires we ran in Martinsville, but the Wauters Motorsports team had some great pit stops which helped us gain positions,” Tim George Jr said. “When you are racing for points you need to be a bit more conservative at some of these short tracks and we were able to bring home the truck with minimal damage. We have a lot of information now to build on for the fall race at Martinsville. Now that Richie (Wauters) and I have two races together, at totally different tracks, it will really help build the momentum for the remainder of the season. I’m looking forward to Rockingham as I’ve run several types of cars there with good results, so I know that will carry over to the No. 5 Applebee’s Racing team this weekend.”
George has one NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start with a 16th-place finish in the 2012 inaugural race at Rockingham Speedway. He has one NASCAR K&N East, two UARA Stars series starts, where he posted a ninth-place finish in 2012, and three ARCA Racing Series starts.
Wauters Motorsports has one previous start at the one-mile, high banked, historic Rockingham Speedway in 2012.
The North Carolina Education Lottery 200 is slated to begin Sunday, April 14, 2013 at 2:00 pm. Live broadcast coverage of the 200 mile, 200 laps race will begin at 1:30 pm on SPEED, MRN and Sirius Satellite Radio NASCAR channel 90.
