The Careers for Veterans 200 presented by Cooper Standard is a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race that takes place at Michigan International Speedway. The event was started in 1999 and was won by Greg Biffle. In 2001 Michigan did not hold a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race because of date conflicts with the CART event which it had been associated. The 2004 race marked the first win for Toyota in a national NASCAR series when Travis Kvapil won for Bang! Racing.[1]
