Goodyear Tire Test on Deck at Rockingham for Select Teams
In advance of NASCAR’s return to Rockingham Speedway, Goodyear will host a tire test on Tuesday (March 6) and Wednesday (March 7) of this week.
NASCAR Camping World Truck Series drivers James Buescher (Turner Motorsports), Jason Leffler (Kyle Busch Motorsports) and Timothy Peters (Red Horse Racing) are scheduled to participate.
Rockingham Speedway will host the third NCWTS event of the season on Sunday, April 15. The Good Sam Roadside Assistance Carolina 200 presented by Cheerwine will mark the first time the series has competed on the famed speedway.   
NCWTS Champion, Rookie Contender Holding Strong in Nationwide
Series graduates Austin Dillon and Cole Whitt have climbed the ladder to the NASCAR Nationwide Series and are not looking back. 
Dillon – the 2011 NCWTS Champion – currently sits second in the series standings following two top-five finishes in the first two races of the season.
Whitt is not far behind.
The former series rookie is fourth in the series standings after capturing one top-five and a 13th place finish to start off the season with his JR Motorsports team. 
It appears Dillon and Whitt will not only be battling for the Sunoco Rookie of the Year Championship, but also the NNS title.
Up Next: The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series returns to action on Saturday, March 31 at Martinsville Speedway. Daytona winner John King leads point on both the series championship and Sunoco Rookie of the Year standings.
