NC Education Lottery 200 Notes

  • Cory Roper and the No. 04 CarQuest Auto Parts Ford F-150 team came to Charlotte Motor Speedway not knowing what to expect due to no practice or qualifying. 
  • This was Roper’s 19th start with the NASCAR truck series
  • Roper started 23rd and was getting his feel for the track since this was only his second time to race at Charlotte
  • Roper found the speed and ran as high as 15th in stage 1 and 11th in stage 3.
  • With 26 laps remaining, Roper radioed in that he lost power and the truck was showing no fuel pressure.  This caused Roper to fall to the back of the pack with a 32nd place finish.
  • Next race for the #04 Roper Racing Team will be in Atlanta Motor Speedway, June 6th.
  • Chase Elliott scored the win at the Charlotte 200. Kyle Busch, Zane Smith, Brett Moffitt, and Sheldon Creed completed the top five.
