They accomplished this by avoiding, or at the very least, surviving the mayhem. Although all five of these driversRead More

Multiple times throughout the race, his No. 51 Louisiana Hot Sauce Toyota Tundra was just ahead when ‘The Big One’ broke out. Ultimately, Snider was just ahead of the finalRead More

By Seth Eggert, NASCAR Writer Being a defending champion won’t guarantee advancing to the next Round of the Playoffs. For defending NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion Johnny Sauter, the odds play into his favor to advance to the Round of Six. Sauter enters Talladega Superspeedway fourth in the Playoff Standings in the No. 21 Allegiant Chevrolet Silverado. At Talladega, Sauter has one win, three top-fives, and five top-10s in eight starts.
