April 18, 2013

Kansas City, KS (April 18, 2013) - Tim George Jr and Wauters Motorsports head west to Kansas Speedway for the running of the SFP 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race on the 1.5-mile speedway Saturday, April 20, 2013.

The No. 5 Applebee’s Racing Ford F150 team just came off their second of two top-20 finishes in the 2013 season and heading into race four with momentum.  George Jr. has one pole start (2012) at the Kansas City, Kansas racetrack in the Camping World Truck Series and three previous ARCA Racing Series starts all resulting in top-20 finishes.

“I’m looking forward to racing at our first intermediate size track together this weekend,” Tim George Jr said. “This team and I have really been building momentum after having back to back races the last few weeks and I know the Wauters Motorsports guys have been working hard to get this truck ready for Kansas.  I was on the pole last year for the Truck Series race and had a pretty decent day – now we just need to get that pole and a top-10 finish this weekend.”

Owner, Richie Wauters in his tenure as a crew chief has posted three top-10 finishes at the Kansas City, Kansas track with his most recent in 2010 with Aric Almirola.

“Kansas can be a bit tricky but Tim (George, Jr) has some pretty good experience there so, I think we will be fine,” owner, Richie Wauters said. “Each race we’ve been together in since Daytona has progressed better and better and these back to back events have been really adding to that confidence and communication levels between us.”

The SFP 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race is slated for Saturday, April 20, 2013.  SPEED, MRN and Sirius Satellite Radio NASCAR Channel 90 will begin live coverage beginning at 1:30pm ET.
