By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Spencer Boyd went through a lot of highs and lows in his NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series rookie campaign. As did his truck team, Young’s Motorsports, who went from one full-time truck with Tyler Young and Austin Hill driving it over the years, to now three full-time entries in 2019. Boyd made the jump from SS-Green Light Racing in the Xfinity Series to a full-time Truck Series gig. Right out of the gate, Boyd finished fourth at Daytona after being just one of nine drivers outRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer A career-high finish by Riley Herbst was the last thing on his mind after a controversial last lap in Saturday’s Sugarlands Shine 250 at Talladega Superspeedway. The 20-year-old had a clean race as chaos happened behind his No. 51 Monster Energy/Advance Auto Parts Toyota Tundra. Gus Dean’s massive late-race shunt on the backstretch sent the race into overtime and Herbst was one of a few drivers in excellent position of battling for the win. Indeed, Herbst was able to put himself in the right spot toRead More
By Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service TALLADEGA, Ala. – Johnny Sauter did a celebratory burnout. He collected the checkered flag from the flag stand at Talladega Superspeedway.

By Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – You could call Friday night’s NextEra Energy Resources 250 a battle of attrition, but that wouldn’t do justice to the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series season opener. It was more like a long, full-blown war. In a race at Daytona International Speedway that saw a record 11 cautions, a record 55 caution laps and just nine of 32 trucks running at the finish, Austin Hill took the checkered flag on the 11th lap of NASCAR overtime to win for the firstRead More

By Seth Eggert, NASCAR Writer It is often said that Talladega Superspeedway levels the playing field for those who compete on the 2.66-mile. The fred’s 250 powered by Coca-Cola was no different for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series competitors.

Bobby Gerhart, Clay Greenfield, Myatt Snider, Spencer Boyd, and Vinnie Miller each improved on their career-best finishing position. They accomplished this by avoiding, or at the very least, surviving the mayhem. Although all five of these driversRead More
