Youth Continues To Shine In NASCAR Camping World Trucks

With Chase Elliott’s victory at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, four different drivers under the age of 21 have won NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races in 2013. Elliott also set a record as the youngest winner in the history of the series at 17 years, nine months and four days. He eclipsed the previous standard set by Ryan Blaney last year at Iowa Speedway – 18 years, eight months and 15 days.

In fact, of the 11 different winners so far this season in the series, seven of them are 23 or younger. Defending series champion James Buescher and Eldora race winner Ty Dillon are the “old” men at 23 with Kyle Larson, Jeb Burton, Blaney and Elliott all younger than 21 when they won races earlier this year.

Kentucky race winner Dillon was 21 when he took home the trophy earlier this year.

Current points leader Matt Crafton is the oldest winner this season at 37, with his 35-year-old teammate Johnny Sauter picking up victories at Daytona and Martinsville. Timothy Peters, who won the first race at Iowa Speedway earlier this season, is the lone remaining driver over 30 to win this season at 33 years young.

Kyle Busch, who has won at Charlotte, Dover and Bristol, is 28.

Iowa Speedway could also feature another record-breaking winner as Erik Jones, second to Peters in Iowa’s first 2013 race, is entered in the event. The Byron, Mich., native enters Sunday’s race at age 17 years, three months and 10 days.
