Ben Kennedy of Daytona Beach, FL enters Friday’s WinStar World Casino and Resort 350 looking to stop a trend. With four top 10s in his last 12 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts, Kennedy has dropped from sixth to eighth in standings since Iowa in July. A string of bad luck has hampered Kennedy’s finishes lately including brake problems, a broken hub and running out of fuel.
“We’re looking forward to Texas because we brought a brand new truck here and we’ve got some new stuff that we’re going to try out,” Kennedy said. “So I’m looking forward to it and really the next three races we’ve got Texas, Phoenix, and Homestead ,which I ran last year so I’ve got experience at all three of those racetracks, which is kind of uncommon for me this year.
Kennedy will only have multiple starts at six tracks through the end of the season: Bristol, Chicagoland, Homestead, Iowa, Martinsville, and Texas. Kennedy has three NASCAR K&N Pro Series West starts at Phoenix in 2011-12.
