In a race that went to overtime after a record ninth caution at 2.5-mile Pocono Raceway, Briscoe surrendered the lead to Ross Chastain in Turn 1 after the final restart but reclaimed the top spot in the Tunnel Turn and finished 1.015 seconds ahead of the No. 10 Chevrolet a lap-and-a-halfRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Third-place finisher Sheldon Creed shined bright in Sunday’s Pocono Organics 150 at Pocono Raceway, winning the first two stages and wowing the fans watching at home in the process. However, the disappointment was present for the highest finishing GMS Racing driver as he knew a shot of his first NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series win slipped away.

By Holly Cain, NASCAR Wire Service It almost appeared that Kyle Busch having to start last – and going a lap down – in Saturday night’s Baptist Health 200 at Homestead-Miami Speedway was akin to the NASCAR Gander & RV Outdoors Truck Series all-time winningest driver giving everyone a head-start. But even that challenge wasn’t enough to keep Busch from victory. He added to his record series win total – extending that mark of excellence to 58 trophies, taking the checkered flag 2.847-seconds ahead of Tyler Ankrum, Ross Chastain, ChaseRead More
