Notes

The Chevrolet Silverado 250 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park is the 14th race on the 2014 Camping World Truck Series schedule.

Located less than one hour east of Toronto, the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (CTMP) is a 910-acre, multi-track facility. It opened in 1961. The facility was formerly known as Mosport International Raceway.

Canadian Tire Motorsport Park is one of only two racetracks to have hosted Formula One, IndyCar, FIA World Endurance Championship and Can-Am races. The other is Watkins Glen International in Watkins Glen, N.Y.

The NASCAR Canadian Tire Series has been competing at this track three times each year since 2007.

CTMP is co-owned by Ron Fellows, who is no stranger to NASCAR racing. Fellows has won six times in NASCAR national series competition, including twice in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (both at Watkins Glen).

This will be the second time the Truck Series competes at this road course. In last year's inaugural race there, Chase Elliott won for the first time in the series after he spun out leader Ty Dillon on the last turn of the final lap. Elliott scored his maiden truck win in just his sixth start. Dillon ended up finishing 17th. They are not competing in this year's race, as both drivers are now full-time competitors in the Nationwide Series.

The next race is the Sept. 12 Lucas Oil 225 at Chicagoland Speedway. Kyle Busch won last year's event there.
