When the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series heads to Pocono (Pa.) Raceway for Saturday’s Pocono Mountains 125, one team in particular will be on a mission. Kyle Busch Motorsports, which fields the No. 18 Toyota, isn’t used to being shut out of victory lane, but that’s the predicament the team finds itself heading into Pocono.
KBM claimed the series owner’s championship in just its first year of competition in the Truck Series — 2010. That title was won with truck owner Kyle Busch primarily behind the wheel. But Busch has looked to other drivers to occupy the driver’s seat in the No. 18 as he focuses on his duties as a Sprint Cup Series driver for Joe Gibbs Racing and getting his Nationwide Series program off the ground. He sharing driving duties in that series with brother, Kurt Busch.
