BRAUN: Leads Rookie Standings After Kansas
TruckSeries.com Report Printer Version 

  Discuss



The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series rookie class experienced a shake-up in points as Colin Braun moved from fourth to first in the Raybestos Rookie of the Year battle.  Braun's third-place finish at Kansas gives him a five-point advantage over second-place Justin Marks.  Braun's performance is the best by a Raybestos rookie since Roush Fenway Racing teammate Erik Darnell ran third in the 2006 season finale.
    
"From the first race at Daytona, my goal this year has been to win that Raybestos Rookie title," said Braun, driver of the No. 6 Con-way Freight Ford F-150.  "We've had fast trucks every race so far, but California and Kansas are the only races we have the results to prove it.  It felt good for everyone on the team to finally get the finish we deserved at Kansas."

The third-place finish at Kansas was Braun's first top five of the season.  He also earned a ninth-place finish at California in February to give him two top 10's in only five starts in 2008.

"To be honest I don't really understand how the rookie point system works, but I know if we keep having runs like we did in Kansas that will put us in a pretty good position," Braun said.  "We need to keep getting top-five and top-10 finishes every race.  In addition to keeping us ahead in the rookie points, running up there will also put us in a position to win a few races this year."

Braun's next race will be Friday, May 16 under the lights at Lowe's Motor Speedway.  The North Carolina Education Lottery 200 will be televised live on SPEED starting at 7:30 p.m. (EDT)
