BKR driver wins second race of 2015 RELATED: Full race results " Updated series standings DOVER, Del. -- Tyler Reddick had a score to settle with Dover International Speedway , and on Friday he did just that, winning the Lucas Oil 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race in his second start at the Monster Mile. Reddick passed Erik Jones on Lap 193 of 200 and finished 1.255 seconds ahead of Daniel Suarez , who drove past third-place finisher Jones in the closing laps to take the runner-up spot. The victory was Reddick's second of the season in the No. 19 Brad Keselowski Racing Ford, and in the driver's view, it atoned for last year's eighth-place finish in which Reddick underestimated the physical toll high-speed racing at Dover can exact. Specifically, his leg fell asleep as the race progressed. "After what happened to myself last year, not knowing a lot about the g-forces in the corners here -- I was kind of green when it came to asphalt racing," Reddick said. "We had a top-five truck last year, and to have something like that impede our progress in what would have been our first top five… to have something like that mess up what could have been potentially a breakout day for us are the things you can't have happen in racing. "I really wanted to come back here and run really strong, just like I want to run strong every given race. But (last year) gave me a little bit of extra fuel for the fire, and I knew I had to run good here -- and we did." Daniel Hemric posted a career-best fourth-place NCWTS finish in his first race at Dover. Series leader Matt Crafton ran fifth but saw his margin narrowed to 11 points by Reddick, who is second after six races. Ben Kennedy came home sixth, followed by Keystone Light Polesitter Ryan Blaney , Brandon Jones , Johnny Sauter and Tyler Young . Suarez, Jones, Kennedy and Blaney, who finished among the top seven, are all NASCAR Next alums. Though Jones lost one position to Reddick in the series standings, he moved closer to Crafton, now trailing the two-time defending champion by 14 points. Sauter is fourth, 40 points behind Crafton, and could be considered the only other driver within realistic striking distance of the leader at this point in the season. Like Jones, Suarez used a two-tire call to gain track position in the late stages of the race but felt race traffic hindered him in the closing laps. "To be honest, I feel like we had a faster truck," said Suarez, a member of the 2014 NASCAR Drive for Diversity class, who posted his best finish to date in the series. "Traffic was everything. I was talking with my crew chief Jerry Baxter through the radio during the middle of the race. I told him, 'I don't care about tires, I need the track position.' "For sure the track position was very important. Erik Jones he changed just two tires in the last pit stop and he was able to almost get the win and he was driving away, but traffic was a big problem for him and for me and I feel like for everyone. Traffic was something that was a gamble, but overall I feel like we learned some good stuff for tomorrow (in the NASCAR XFINITY Series race)."

NASCAR Next driver set to take on Monster Mile DOVER, Del. -- Sporting a grin from ear to ear, Jesse Little walked into the media center on Thursday at Dover International Speedway ready to take on the weekend. Piloting the No. 97 Carolina Nut Company Toyota for ThorSport Racing, the 18-year-old K&N Pro Series East regular and NASCAR Next driver will make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut at the Monster Mile on Friday. "I've been looking forward to this weekend for a long time," Little said. "I know this is a family-owned team and we've put a lot of hard work and preparation into this weekend and I think my Camping World Truck Series start at Dover is something that still hasn't hit me yet. But I'm certainly excited and I love coming to this place. I enjoy it very much and I'm looking forward to a great weekend." Sitting side-by-side to Little during the press conference were two of the Truck Series' youngest drivers, 17-year-olds Cole Custer and John Hunter Nemechek . With just a total of 23 starts shared between the two drivers, they offered Little any bit of advice they could give for his first Truck start. "I'd say take it easy, especially the first lap of the race," Custer advised Little. "It's amazing how much the air affects these things. I was honestly scared for my life the first time I did it." In Custer's first start at Dover last season he finished 14th. "Just finish the race," Nemechek told Little with a chuckle. "Run as many laps as you can to get the experience." In Nemechek's first start at Dover last season he finished sixth. Little, Custer and Nemechek are all on this season's NASCAR Next roster and agree that the program has brought the young drivers together. "It makes it enjoyable for us as drivers when we know we have someone we can go to and talk to and they'll understand," Little said. "It makes it easier and at the same time it makes it fun." Manning Little's pit box is another familiar face to the young driver. Harold Holly, a 19-time winning crew chief in the NASCAR XFINITY Series and former pit boss for Little's father, Chad, who is currently NASCAR's managing director, technical inspection/officiating. Holly will be calling the shots during Friday's Lucas Oil 200 (5:30 p.m. ET, FOX Sports 1, MRN, SiriusXM). "Harold and I go way back ... He's always been a great family friend," Little said" "Him and I have great chemistry and that goes the same for the ThorSport guys. It's been great to have their help. I have the ability to lean on (ThorSport teammates) Matt (Crafton) and Johnny (Sauter) and those guys and their knowledge is amazing and I'm definitely going to use that for my advantage and lean on those guys quite a bit this weekend." Lucky for Little, ThorSport Racing teammate Crafton just so happens to be a two-time Camping World Truck Series champion. FULL SERIES COVERAGE • Latest news • Standings • Schedule
BKR driver sets track record, will share front row with Erik Jones RELATED: Qualifying results Ryan Blaney landed the Keystone Light Pole Award in Friday afternoon qualifying for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Dover International Speedway . Blaney, driving the Brad Keselowski Racing No. 29 Ford, clocked a track-record lap of 158.465 mph to secure the No. 1 starting spot in Friday's Lucas Oil 200 (5:30 p.m. ET, FOX Sports 1, MRN, SiriusXM). The pole position was the fifth of his truck series career, coming in his first appearance in the series in 2015. Erik Jones , a Sunoco Rookie of the Year candidate, just missed out on his fourth career pole in the series, claiming the second starting spot after a lap of 157.985 mph in the Kyle Busch Motorsports No. 4 Toyota. Series points leader and two-time defending champion Matt Crafton was fastest in the opening 20-minute round of qualifying, but settled for the third starting spot in the ThorSport Racing No. 88 Toyota. Tyler Reddick was fourth-fastest in another Keselowski-owned truck, with rookie Daniel Suarez -- a KBM teammate to Jones -- completing the top five. NASCAR Next driver Jesse Little, 18, qualified ninth for his national series debut. Brandon Jones caused the only stoppage in the three-round knockout style qualifying format, looping his GMS Racing No. 33 Chevrolet in the final minute of Round 3. Jones' prolonged slide through Turn 2 ended with slight contact with the truck's nose against the inside wall. Jones settled for the 12th starting spot after failing to complete a lap in the five-minute round. FULL SERIES COVERAGE • Latest news • Standings • Schedule
