2005 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series


2005 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series

The 2005 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series season began February 18 and ended November 18. Ted Musgrave of Ultra Motorsports was crowned the season's champion.

A rule change affected the qualification process in 2005. The top 30 teams in the owners' standings at the end of the 2004 season saw their drivers qualify automatically for the first four races of the season, provided they attempted all races in the previous year. However, only 29 teams met the criteria, so at the start of the season, one additional spot was available for the remaining teams on the entry list. After the fourth race, current standings were used to determine the teams guaranteed to have their drivers in the field.

NASCAR Rookie of the Year

The 2005 Craftsman Truck Series Rookie of the Year Battle was virtually one-sided, as Todd Kluever of Roush Racing was the only candidate to attempt a full schedule, and he posted twelve top-ten finishes. Timothy Peters and Shigeaki Hattori were the only drivers to make the eight-race limit by race twenty. Peters had two top-tens, while Hattori struggled and was released from Germain Racing. Regan Smith was the only other driver to run more than ten races, as Clay Rogers, Nick Tucker, Jimmy Kite, and Kerry Earnhardt saw their seasons end early.
