Joey Coulter Finishes Fourth at Kentucky SpeedwayPress Release
Back on track, the 2011 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Rookie of the Year maintained a position within the top five before regaining the lead on lap 60. Coulter remained out front until the team’s final yellow-flag pit stop on lap 81 for four tires, fuel and an additional chassis adjustment. While most teams opted to take two tires or fuel only, Coulter lost the lead on pit road and restarted the race from the fifth position on lap 84.
The 22-year-old driver spent the closing laps running in the top five, ultimately crossing the finish line in the fourth position. The top-five finish moves Coulter up to fifth in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver championship point standings, 46 markers behind the leader.

JOEY COULTER QUOTE:
“I had a great truck tonight. I really thought we had the Chevrolet Silverado to win, but during that last run it cooled down a bunch and we just got too tight. Everyone at RCR is doing a great job for us and I can’t thank them enough.”
