Live Blogging Camping World Trucks From Chicagoland (SPEED - 7:30PM ET)

That is driver Steve Arpin, who is on tonight's pole for the Camping World Truck Series race at Chicagoland Speedway. It looks to be a pretty racy bunch tonight. There are some current Cup drivers, a handful of one-timers and a group of regulars chasing the points. That's been a good combo for this series.

Krista Voda kicks things off at 7:30PM with The Set-up pre-race show. Rick Allen will call the race with Phil Parsons and Micheal Waltrip. Hermie Sadler and Ray Dunlap are the pit reporters.

This track is fast, but not the type of track for which the truck series was intended. Beating and banging here just results in less aero downforce and ultimately lack of a shot to win. Passing is tough and restarts might hold the key to the race.

TV looks to be the familiar package from SPEED. The focus is on the race, nothing from the TV side is designed to take over the telecast and it really works. Look for lots of split-screens tonight to follow two groups racing or green flag pitstops.
