ST. LOUIS — official release — Getty Images for NASCAR photo — The much-anticipated return to a track with roots in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series’ formative years has arrived.

Gateway Motorsports Park, in the shadows of St. Louis and its breathtaking arch, had held truck races from 1998 until 2010 – welcoming such names as Rick Carelli, Greg Biffle, Jack Sprague (pictured; whose last win came at GMP in 2009), Ted Musgrave and Ron Hornaday Jr. to its Victory Lane.

Now a new roster of young stars head to the 1.25-mile track, names like Erik Jones, Jeb Burton, Darrell Wallace Jr. and Ben Kennedy.

New names, same side-by-side, must-see action.

Ron Hornaday Jr. is the lone competitor scheduled to race in Saturday night’s Drivin’ For Linemen 200 who has won at the track in the truck field.

The Fallen Linemen Organization will be guests of MAKE Motorsports and driver T.J. Bell during the event. This event will highlight the International Linemen Museum and Hall of Fame which was created to honor linemen who work alongside first responders throughout the country during situations that arise due to natural disasters and weather issues throughout the country. Several family members will be guests of the team during the Drivin’ for Linemen 200 on Saturday.
