dbo:abstract
  • Das Camping World 200 ist ein seit 1998 ausgetragenes Autorennen der NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, welches auf dem Gateway International Raceway in Madison, Illinois stattfindet. Das Rennen geht über eine Distanz von 200 Meilen (321,87 Kilometer), was bedeutet, dass die Fahrer 160 Runden zu fahren haben. Im Jahre 2004 kam es zu einem „Green-White-Checkered-Finish“, dabei wurde das Rennen um 14 Runden verlängert, allerdings wurden fast alle dieser Runden unter gelber Flagge gefahren, da es beim „Green-White-Checkered-Finish“ nur zwei „grüne Runden“ gibt. Es war eine der längsten Rennverlängerungen. Ted Musgrave ist der einzige Fahrer, dem es gelang, mehr als einmal dieses Rennen zu gewinnen. Er schaffte es in den Jahren 2001 und 2005. In der Saison 2007 war das Rennen eines der entscheidenden für die Meisterschaft, da der als Punkteführender nach Madison, Illinois gereiste Mike Skinner aufgrund eines Reifenschaden nur 28. wurde und Ron Hornaday Jr., der Zweiter wurde, die Führung in der Punktewertung übernehmen konnte. Skinner war zuvor sieben Monate lang Führender der Gesamtwertung. (de)
  • The Drivin' for Linemen 200 is a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Gateway Motorsports Park since 1998, and ran until 2010 when the track closed. With new ownership in place in 2012, the race returned to the schedule in 2014. Rick Carelli won the first truck race at Gateway. A year later Greg Biffle won the first night race for the series at Gateway. In 2000, the race date was moved to May, and the time of race was once again day. Jack Sprague not only won that race, but holds the average speed record for the event to this day. A year later Ted Musgrave won the event after showers moved the race back into the evening. In 2004, the NASCAR Craftsman truck was using its version of the green-white-checkered rule, which stated that every race must end under green, for the last time. With 5 laps left in the race Jack Sprague cut a tire bringing out the caution. Caution would come out. On the first green-white-checkered attempt a wreck in turn 1 brought the yellow flag out again. The very next green flag saw first and second position drivers, Shane Hmiel and Bobby Hamilton get together bringing the yellow out again. On the second attempt on the back straightway, Rick Crawford's truck was involved in an accident that had the truck sliding on its side against the wall. On the fourth attempt, David Starr came out on top in a race with a record for most green-white-checkered laps and most attempts. Shortly thereafter NASCAR adopted a universal green-white-checkered rule for all three of its major series which said that if the caution flag comes out at any time during the green-white-checkered run the race will end under caution. NASCAR-sanctioned events stopped being run at the track after the 2010 season when Dover Motorports shut down the circuit at the end of the 2010 season. The circuits were sold to former club racer and INDYCAR Indy Lights driver Curtis Francois in 2011, who promptly brought back the NHRA tour in 2012. Francois and NASCAR successfully negotiated the Truck Series return on June 14, 2014. (en)
