In a Truck Series race that featured several caution flags, a shake up in the points standings and some good old fashion hard racing. This race would come down to the final laps between Matt Crafton (leading the race) with second place Nelson Piquet Jr. fighting it out for the race victory. After Piquet Jr. made a few attempts at getting underneath Crafton, only to wash up the track, I thought that Crafton would have won this race. But on the last lap, Nelson Piquet Jr. made an aggressive move into turn one by throwing his truck into the corner and barely clearing Crafton with a slide move to make the race winning pass.
I was surprised that in watching the Truck Series racing on several cookie cutter 1.5 mile ovals this season that these races are a lot more entertaining with more hard racing including passing than the Cup Series especially at Atlanta Motor Speedway and Kentucky Speedway. The Kentucky race for the Cup Series was especially boring while the Truck race turned out to be a decent race.
And in the Truck Series point standings, its Ty Dillon (finished 10th) retaining the lead over second place James Buescher by one point and third place Tim Peters by 24 points with 5 races to go. Next stop, Talladega Superspeedway next Saturday.
