News-DemocratOctober 26, 2013 

NASCAR on Friday announced the return of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series to Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison for a June 14, 2014 race.

It will be the first time the NASCAR trucks have run at Gateway's 1.25-mile oval since 2010. Gateway hosted the trucks series from 1998 to 2010, with Ted Musgrave as the only repeat winner in 2001 and 2005.

Kevin Harvick won the last race there in July 2010. Under new track owner Curtis Francois, Gateway also has hosted the NHRA Midwest Nationals drag racing event the past two years.

"We're excited to have the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series return to Gateway and to the St. Louis area, which is such a racing hotbed," said Steve O'Donnell, NASCAR senior vice president of racing operations. "Curtis Francois and his staff have worked diligently to bring NASCAR national series racing back to those great fans."

There will be a 22-race schedule in 2014 and includes two tracks that made successful debuts in 2013 -- Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio and Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, Ontario in Canada.
