By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Thursday’s UNOH 200 at Bristol Motor Speedway kicked off the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series playoffs, but it looked more like a “crashing the party vibe” than a night controlled by the 10 title contenders. When you look at the top-five finishers, only an unsponsored Brett Moffitt represented the playoff competitors with a runner-up result. Otherwise, it was a 200-lap race that’ll go down as a night of guys making strong statements with Sam Mayer winning in just his seventh Truck Series start. BehindRead More

By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Lap traffic is often the bane of any NASCAR driver’s existence, especially at tracks like Dover International Speedway. Friday’s KDI Office Technolgoy 200 was no different as both runner-up Matt Crafton and third-place Brett Moffitt were the most vocal about the competition in Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series. All throughout the 200-lap race, drivers were complaining over the radio about back markers getting in the way or in Moffitt’s case, competitors not really meeting minimum speed. As the bottom results show, the last three trucksRead More
