Playing in the Dirt … As part of Bristol Motor Speedway’s 60th anniversary celebration in 2021, the high-banked concrete
oval will be transformed into a state-of-the-art dirt racing facility. Bristol Motor Speedway has become a dirt track that has
been measured to exactly .5-mile. The event will mark the first time the NASCAR Cup Series will compete on dirt in the
sport’s modern era; however, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series returned to the dirt in 2013 at the Eldora Speedway.

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will race on dirt twice this season – this weekend at the Bristol Motor Speedway
and later this season at the Knoxville Speedway in Iowa.

Starting Lineup: NASCAR has instituted a special format for qualifying at the Bristol Motor Speedway which includes
qualifying races to decide the starting lineup. The lineup for the qualifying races was done by a random draw on Thursday,
March 25. The random draw determined heat race designation and starting position for the heat race. The draw was in
order of current NASCAR Camping World Truck Series owner points (24th-place).

Timothy Peters will start at the Bristol Motor Speedway from the 11th-place in Qualifying Race #2.

There are four qualifying races scheduled with 44 total entrants competing. Each qualifying race will have 11 drivers each
to vie for 40 spots in the final field for the 150-lap event. The four qualifying races will be held to 15 laps each with only
green flag laps counted – no overtime rule.

Pit Stall Selections … Pit Stall 33, on the backstretch.
