Second Time's A Charm...After scoring a top-five finish in his return to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) last weekend, Tayler Malsam and his Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM) team hope to carry momentum to Charlotte Motor Speedway this weekend in the No. 32 Outerwall Chevrolet. The 25-year-old will make his third-career NCWTS start at the 1.5-mile track after receiving a top-10 finish in 2009.


This Week's Silverado...Crew chief Mike Hillman Jr. and the No. 32 TSM team will unload a familiar chassis this week at Charlotte. TSM-605 made its debut last season at the fall race at Texas Motor Speedway, where it claimed the pole, followed by a third-place finish at the NCWTS finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.


Let's Go...Turner Scott Motorsports is pleased to welcome Outerwall, Inc. on board the No. 32 Chevrolet Silverado for 12 NCWTS races this year. As the company that brought consumers Redbox® entertainment, Coinstar® money services, and ecoATM® electronics recycling kiosks, Outerwall is leading the next generation of automated retail.With more than 20 years of experience, the company mission is to create a better everyday by delivering breakthrough kiosk experiences that delight consumers and generate revenue for retailers.


Previous Race Recap...In his return to the NCWTS, Tayler Malsam proved he was back with a vengeance as he took on Kansas Speedway. During the two practice sessions, Malsam placed 12th fastest, followed by eighth fastest, and continued to perform as he placed the No. 32 truck in the 13th starting position after his first attempt at NASCAR's new qualifying format. Despite a caution-filled night, Malsam spent most of his time running within the top five and was able to avoid multiple incidents when the field went three and four wide. After an impressive last-lap battle, Malsam crossed the finish line in fifth position, just a nose short of taking fourth.


Watch and Listen...Don't miss any of the action as the NCWTS goes racing under the lights in NASCAR's backyard. The North Carolina Education Lottery 200 can be seen live on Friday, May 16 beginning at 8:00 p.m. EDT on FOX Sports 1. The race can also be heard live on MRN Radio as well as SiriusXM Satellite Radio, channel 90.


Tayler Malsam on Racing at Charlotte Motor Speedway:

"I'm really looking forward to racing our No. 32 Outerwall truck again this weekend. It felt great to get a top-five finish in my first run with Turner Scott Motorsports, and I think we've got a chance to do it again this week. My team and I were able to test at Charlotte Motor Speedway a few weeks ago and I learned some stuff that I plan to apply this weekend. The truck we're taking had two good runs at mile-and-a-half tracks last year, so that will also work to our advantage. I'm ready to get back out there and get to work."
