Cameron Hayley finishes 10th in Texas
Calgary’s Cameron Hayley finished 10th in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series’ race held at Texas Motor Speedway Friday night.
Cameron Hayley, driver of the No. 13 RIDE TV Toyota Tundra, qualified 17th for the race, his fifth career start at Texas Motor Speedway.
Hayley was able to work his way into the top-10 by lap 30, battling a “tight through the center, loose on exit,” Toyota Tundra. The ThorSport Racing driver maintained a position inside the top-10 throughout the 147-lap event, running as high as sixth.
In the closing laps the Calgary, Alberta, Canada native made contact with the No. 4 truck of Christopher Bell, and settled for a 10th-place finish behind race winner, Johnny Sauter.
“We were really good at first, but got tight as the run went on. It took everything we had to hold on to it there at the end. I don’t know what happened on that last restart,” said Hayley about the contact he had with Bell. “We got three-wide, Christopher [Bell] got loose and got into me, and we got a pretty bad tire rub. That had nothing to do with what happened on the last lap though. I apologized for that. I know he is in the Chase, but my spotter was calling ‘clear.’ That’s not the way I want to race someone in the Chase, so I need to go apologize to him.”
Hayley will contest his next race, the Lucas Oil 150 at Phoenix International Raceway on Friday, November 11th.
