Change is coming to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, but is it the change that most want to see? The most notable addition to the third-tier stock car tour is the Special Rules Engine — an Ilmor Engineering spec motor that is optional for the 2018 campaign. Toyota teams initially were in opposition to the concept, but TRD president David Wilson said last week that the manufacturer would accept it in the Truck Series, recognizing its importance to driver development. The original NASCAR SuperTrucks Series was essentially a West Coast short track tour, with races at venues like Tucson Speedway in Arizona, Evergreen Speedway in Washington State and Phoenix Raceway, plus occasional trips out east to Bristol Motor Speedway in Tennessee, Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville and North Wilkesboro, North Carolina.
