By Holly Cain, NASCAR Wire Service Austin Hill rebounded Friday night, using a great final restart to earn the Playoff win in the World of Westgate 200 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Hill, who started 11th, reminded his NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoor Truck Series competitors there’s a reason he won the regular season title. Hill took the lead for good on a restart with 39 laps remaining after jumping out ahead of the night’s most dominant driver Sheldon Creed. Creed led a race best 89 of the 134 lapsRead More
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 Holly Cain, NASCAR Wire Service DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Niece Motorsport’s Natalie Decker was grinning widely before she even arrived at the many microphones and reporters ready to interview the Wisconsin driver following her historical run in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series season-opener Friday night at Daytona International Speedway.

Eight drivers started the Playoffs with a berth in the championship race in mind, but half of them fell by the wayside, leaving Ross Chastain, Matt Crafton, Stewart Friesen, and Brett Moffitt as theRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Drivers in the Round of 6 endured an accurate depiction of a “Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” in Saturday’s NASCAR Hall of Fame 200 at Martinsville Speedway. Just about everyone who are competing for the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series championship either dealt with truck issues or involved in a series of cautions that ended their race. Only two out of the six finished inside the top-10 while the other four were outside the top-20. Earlier in the race, it was all calm forRead More
