Cody Coughlin’s 10th career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start comes at the “Diamond in the Desert” of Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The race is Coughlin’s eighth of the season with Kyle Busch Motorsports.
The Race Track
Las Vegas Motor Speedway is located in Clark County, Nevada about 15 miles northeast of the Las Vegas Strip. It is a 1,200-acre complex with multiple race tracks. LVMS is a 1.5-mile high-banked oval. It first opened in 1996 with the first NASCAR race being held in 1998.
The Race Truck
Cody Coughlin and the No. 51 JEGS.com Kyle Busch Motorsports team will pilot chassis No. KBM-035. Coughlin has yet to race this chassis. KBM-035’s last race came at Chicagoland Speedway in mid-September.
The Crew Chief
Kevin “Bono” Manion will be calling the shots atop the pit box for Coughlin. It will be the seventh race for Coughlin and Manion as a team. Manion is an accomplished crew chief with a Daytona 500 championship on his resume. Manion and Jamie McMurray won the 500 together in 2009.
“I thought that New Hampshire went pretty well all things considered. We didn’t get the finish we should have gotten, but Cody got to run up front and he showed he can hang with those guys. I think he learned a lot last week, so I’m excited to be back with him this week in Vegas.”
