By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Tyler Ankrum came into the Kansas Speedway doubleheader inside the top-10 in points, but now will leave well outside of the playoff picture after two demoralizing races, including Saturday’s E.P.T. 200. In yesterday’s Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 200, Ankrum went to the garage to repair the brakes and finished 22 laps behind race winner Austin Hill. However, Ankrum’s No. 26 Liuna Chevrolet Silverado still showed strong pace that matched the front running trucks once he got back to the 1.5-mile circuit. Fast forward to today’s 134-lapRead More
By Holly Cain, NASCAR Wire Service Sheldon Creed prevailed in a frantic three-wide restart on Lap 52 of Saturday’s Buckle Up in Your Truck 225 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series race and held the spot through the second stage break, earning his first career series victory when lightning and rain showers forced the race to be called official 71 laps into the scheduled 150-lapper.

Ankrum’s GMS Racing teammates had their nights altered due to crashes, specifically on Lap 21 when Chase Elliott, Brett Moffitt and Zane Smith were involved in a multi-truck crash in Turn 4. Elliott recovered, but Ankrum remained scot free throughout the 134-lap race. Spinning on the restart! @chaseelliott gets sent around and multiple contenders get collectedRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer All the talk during Tuesday’s North Carolina Education Lottery 200 was about the much anticipated $100,000 bounty battle between race winner Chase Elliott and the man he needed to beat which was Kyle Busch.
