Tim Bainey Jr. and the #00 Aaron’s Lucky Dog Truck Series Team posted a very impressive 15th place finish in their NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Debut this weekend at Dover International Speedway during the “AAA Insurance 200”.

 

“It was a great way for us to make our debut with a 15th place finish in a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Event,” Tim Jr. cracked a smile “I couldn’t be happier right now for our #00 Aaron’s Lucky Dog Team.”

 

“I have to thank everyone at Aaron’s for being behind us in this, Ken Butler, Charlie and Robin Loudermilk, and all the great people who work throughout the company. It really means a lot to know how much they think of us, my family, and our team. Just to be associated with such great people is an honor in itself.”

 

“To have a top-15 finish in our first ever NASCAR start is just awesome,” Tim Jr. added. “I always tell people, we work hard at it, treat people right, and trust in god. The more you do it – the better things get – and to be sitting here with our Aaron’s Lucky Dog Truck and a 15th place finish in our NASCAR Debut… this is pretty cool!”

 

Tim Jr. and the team unloaded at Dover with zero laps on the new #00 Aaron’s Lucky Dog Truck, it was also Tim Jr’s first visit to the famed “Monster Mile” in any racing series.

 

“We definitely took on a tough task,” said Tim Jr. “That makes it even more rewarding for us to look back on. My first lap in a truck was Thursday morning at Dover, and that was a little intimidating to say the least.”

 

“We took our time, worked on the truck, and I worked on trying to catch my breath a little more each time we went out. Our Aaron’s Dream Team really worked together throughout the weekend, and it all came together for us in the end.”

 

Tim Jr. got a little loose off turn four in Friday’s Qualifying Session (as noted by the commentators during the live Speed channel broadcast), but still managed to turn in the 32nd fastest time in the #00 Aaron’s Lucky Dog Truck, which would place them 36th on the starting grid.

 

“Timmy had his hands full in qualifying,” said Crew Chief Dan Bainey. “We needed to tighten it up a little, but he did a great job – made a nice save and kept us in the show.”

 

When the green flag waved, Tim Jr. and the team focused on getting as many laps in as they could and staying out of trouble.

 

“Our goal was to get Timmy some seat time in the Truck,” said Crew Chief Dan Bainey. “His first lap on a track this season was in Thursday’s practice session, so that was tough. He did a great job, he’s really good at keeping his composure and always takes care of our equipment.”

 

“We wanted to just keep up with the pack for the first 50-75 laps, let him feel out the truck and the track, then start racing guys after that. Once he got comfortable, we made a few adjustments, and by the end we were running right with some of the best.”

 

Tim Jr. was inside the top-25 by lap 100 and the team continued to move up as the race went on. They managed to lead a lap with the #00  Aaron’s Lucky Dog Truck during a round of Pit Stops, event got the Aaron’s Lucky Dog pass during the event, and ended the day with a 15th place finish.

 

“It was a really great day for the Aaron’s Lucky Dog Team,” finished Dan. “To come home with a 15th place finish in our NASCAR Truck Series Debut is pretty awesome. We’ll continue to learn, and we’ll just keep getting better. But it’s a pretty good start!”
