NASCAR Executive Vice President and Chief Racing Development Officer Steve O’Donnell announced Tuesday at the NASCAR Media Tour presented by Technocom that a Caution Clock will be utilized in each NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event (except for Eldora Speedway) during the 2016 season.

The clock will be set to 20 minutes and triggered at the start of each green-flag run during race events. When the clock counts down to zero, a caution flag then will be displayed, with no “lucky dog” beneficiary award being given.

A caution occurring before time expires resets the clock when the subsequent green flag is displayed, and the first truck a lap down will be the beneficiary of the free pass to get back on the lead lap.

The caution clock will be turned off with 20 laps to go at all events in the series, with the exception of Canadian Tire Motorsport Park and Pocono Raceway, where the clock will be turned off with 10 laps remaining.
