By Brian Eberly, Contributing Writer HOMESTEAD, Fla. – Grant Enfinger turned a lap at 169.348 mph in the No. 98 Champion Power Equipment Ford to take the top spot for Friday night’s Ford EcoBoost 200 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. It was the second pole of 2018 and the third of Enfinger’s career in his 60th start in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. “Our truck has been driving good all day even from when we first unloaded,” said Enfinger. “I’ve got a lot of confidence in the truck and a really good team behindRead More

By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Pit strategy elevated Grant Enfinger’s strong start in his second full-season in the Camping World Truck Series, finishing fourth in the Alpha Energy Solutions 250 at Martinsville Speedway, won by John Hunter Nemechek. It marked the second straight fourth place finish for Enfinger’s No. 98 Champion Power Equipment Ford F-150 and dating back to last season, his fifth straight finish inside the top-10. ThorSport Racing had a strong day with all four trucks finishing in the top-10 in stage one, including the top three spots.Read More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Todd Gilliland came into Martinsville Speedway with a lot to prove after seeing his No. 4 Mobil 1 Toyota Tundra run by his dad David at Daytona, his boss Kyle Busch at Atlanta, and Spencer Davis at Las Vegas with neither scoring a top-10. The reason behind Gilliand missing the opening three races was NASCAR’s regulations prohibiting drivers under 18 years old competing on tracks 1.5 miles or larger. Gilliland doesn’t turn 18 until May 15th. Age aside, Gilliland had another battle in his seasonRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Wintry conditions was the word around the NASCAR garage Saturday instead of spring climate and racing action, as both the Camping World Truck Series race and Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series qualifying have been impacted by inclement weather. With weather being a concern, the Alpha Energy Solutions 250 truck race started several minutes early to get as much racing possible. The 32-truck field managed to run 23 laps until it was halted for rain and snow. Not wasting time, NASCAR postponed the race until Sunday evening,Read More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer David Gilliland Racing-Crosley announced Tuesday that Justin Marks will replace Bo LeMastus in the No. 54 Crosley Toyota Tundra for Friday’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. It’ll be Marks’ first Truck Series start since February 2016 at Atlanta Motor Speedway and his first at Las Vegas in 10 years. Marks, who’s running full-time in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, said the deal to run for DGR-Crolsey was a late decision, but he’s looking forward to provide a great resultRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Ben Rhodes enjoyed a stout fourth-place finish in last Friday’s NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona International Speedway, but it has since been overshadowed by an L1 penalty handed out by NASCAR Wednesday. The outcomes of the penalty have also led to the suspension crew chief Eddie Troconis for Saturday’s Active Pest Control 200 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Additionally, Troconis was fined $5,000 after the rear of Rhodes’ No. 41 Ford F-150 was too low during post-race inspection. ThorSport Racing will also be penalized 10Read More
By Toby Christie, NASCAR Editor A.J. Allmendinger had a decent start to the 2017 season going after finishing third in the Daytona 500, and surviving for a 26th place effort in Atlanta, but when his car made it back to the garage for post-race inspection NASCAR found that his No. 47 Chevrolet SS had three lug nuts that were not properly fastened. NASCAR announced Atlanta penalties Wednesday, and Allmendinger and his No. 47 team have been docked 35 championship driver and owner points. His crew chief Randall Burnett has alsoRead More
By Michael Guzman, Contributing Writer Hampton, GA – Alex Bowman doesn’t know what’s next. And that doesn’t scare him. It may be a wheel-force data test at Daytona, he says chuckling. Either way, there doesn’t seem to be another NASCAR race on the horizon anytime soon for Bowman, despite a strong run during Saturday’s Active Pest Control 200 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. During the final restart with three laps to go, Bowman (who was substituting for an injured Justin Haley) forced a three wide battle with Ben Rhodes and JohnnyRead More
By Toby Christie, NASCAR Editor For the past 57 years, Daytona International Speedway has relentlessly and unbiasedly chewed up and spit out thousands of racecars. A lot of times, the driver who dominated the race at this intimidating 2.5-mile track finds themselves in a sadly predictable late-race melee which nearly always happens in restrictor plate racing. Until 2017, there was no real actual silver lining for those who led the majority of the event only to be wiped from the final running order. Enter NASCAR’s new Stage Racing Format. Regardless ofRead More
