RAM DRIVER QUOTES “Kansas is one of my favorite race tracks. I had my first NASCAR start there in a Nationwide car and won the pole, which was a pretty significant accomplishment for me in my racing career. Aside from that, it’s the track that I look at as the quintessential mile-and-a-half. It’s smooth, it’s got a lot of lanes and it’s kind of the perfect shape for a mile-and-a-half. All those things add up to being a track that is very much dependent on equipment. We ran well there last year. We were running top five the whole race and had a mishap at the end.” — Parker Kligerman

RAM IN THE CAMPING WORLD TRUCK SERIES

• Bobby Hamilton (2004) and Ted Musgrave (2005) won the season championship driving a RAM.

• RAM has captured the manufacturer’s championship three times in the 17-year history of the series – 2001, 2003 and 2004.

• Tony Raines gave RAM its first win in the series in 1997, winning at I-70 Speedway in Odessa, Mo.

• RAM won 15 of the 24 NCWTS races during the 2001 season, 13 of 25 in 2003 and 11 of 25 in 2004.

• There have been 420 races in the NCWTS beginning at Phoenix International Raceway on Feb. 2, 1995. There were three RAM drivers – Joe Bessey, Bob Keselowski and Walker Evans – in the 33-truck starting field. Bessey scored a fourth-place finish while Mike Skinner took the win.

RAM TALK “The team has excelled at those mile-and-a-halfs, so we’re anxious to get back there and see what we can do. Kansas is definitely still aero-dependent and obviously the more tracks age, the more it puts it in the driver’s hands.” — Doug Randolph, Crew Chief, No. 29 Reese Towpower RAM
