I need to give a shout-out to Joey Coulter, driver of the RCR No. 22 Chevy Silverado who had his best truck series finish as a Rookie in his first start in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Kansas Speedway.
With all the hoopla surrounding Richard Childress and Kyle Busch, I believe the focus was taken away from Joey and his awesome driving abilities he had showcased at Kansas Speedway.
At one point in the O’Reilly Auto Parts 250, Coulter was down a lap. He received the ”wave around” restarting 22nd on lap 65. Restarting 15th with 30 laps to go, Coulter went on a passing rampage, passing six trucks in seven laps and, eventually, working his way up to sixth with 10 laps to go. Coulter then had a clean, lengthy lap-by-lap, side-by-side race with NASCAR Sprint Cup Series regular Kyle Busch. While approaching the final laps, Coulter made a final pass on the last lap in turn four and secured his first career top-five finish. In the process, he gained five positions in the driver championship point standings.
Congratulations to Joey and the No. 22 RCR NASCAR Camping World Truck team!!!!!
