Notes

The Lucas Oil 200 at Dover International Speedway is the fifth race on the 2014 Camping World Truck Series schedule.

The series has competed at Dover once each year since 2000. Kyle Busch is the only driver with multiple truck victories at this racetrack. Busch has won there three times (2005, '11 and '13).

Kurt Busch won the inaugural truck race at Dover, the MBNA 200, on Sept. 22, 2000. Busch started on the pole for that event.

In 2001, Scott Riggs started on the pole and won a truck race at this track. No driver has won from that starting position there since then.

Matt Crafton, the current points leader, has the most truck starts at Dover with 13. Crafton did not compete in the first race there in 2000. He has yet to win at this track, but did finish second to Kyle Busch in last year's race.

The next race is the June 6 WinStar World Casino 400 at Texas Motor Speedway. Jeb Burton won last year's event there.
