Top Five Standings

Even with Kyle Busch winning the first race of the season, he is not the point leader as he is ineligible for the title. Timothy Peters of Red Horse Racing tops the standings with his second place finish. He has 43 points on season leading ThorSport Racing Johnny Sauter by two points.

Turner Scott Motorsports driver Ron Hornaday Jr is in third place with 39 points. Ryan Blaney is fourth with 38 points. Blaney drives for Brad Keselowski racing. Jeb Burton rounds out top five in his ThorSport Racing truck with 37 points.

Race 2

The second race of the season is not until the last week of March as the drivers will race in the Kroger 250 in Martinsville. This season has just begun but looks like we are gonna have a great battle for the title.

Look for young guys like Ryan Blaney, Jeb Burton, Reddick, Kennedy and Darrell Wallace Jr to make this season a season to remember.
