With a strong push from GMS Racing teammate and Chase driver Ben Kennedy after a restart on Lap 93 of 94, Enfinger surged to the front and stayed there in the face of a last-lap challenger from another teammate, Spencer Gallagher, whoRead More
By Seth Eggert, NASCAR Writer The last time the NASCAR Xfinity Series visited Charlotte Motor Speedway, Denny Hamlin took home the victory in exciting fashion. Hamlin held off Austin Dillon on a late restart in overtime and went on to win by 0.291 seconds. Justin Allgaier was the highest finishing Xfinity Series regular in fifth.

By David Morgan, NASCAR Contributor Heading into Wednesday night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway, just five drivers were locked into the Truck Series Chase with a dead heat for the final transfer spot, but after 200 laps around the half-mile bullring, the Chase picture has come into focus a bit more with three races remaining in the regular season. Prior to the UNOH 200, Ben Kennedy and Cameron Hayley were in a tie for the eighth and final transfer spot as the two drivers bothRead More
By Toby Christie, NASCAR Editor NASCAR has announced penalties stemming from the chaos that broke out in last week’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Drivin for Linemen 200 at Gateway Motorsports Park. John Wes Townley, who drives the No. 05 truck for Athenian Motorsports and Spencer Gallagher, who drives the No. 23 truck for GMS Racing each have wallets that are quite a bit lighter today after their on track wrestling match this past weekend.

By Toby Christie, NASCAR Editor Saturday night at Gateway Motorsports Park, John Wes Townley and Spencer Gallagher did not cement the foundation of friendship. On lap 144, Gallagher made contact which sent Townley crashing in turn one. Not to be outdone, Townley returned the favor 10 laps later. This impact ended both drivers’ night. What ensued after the crash was kind of hilarious. Townley bull rushed Gallagher and knocked him to the ground, Gallagher grabbed Townley’s legs and pulled him to the ground. The two then got back to their feetRead More
By Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service HAMPTON, Ga. – In a wild race that saw some of the best trucks in the field destroyed before the finish, John Hunter Nemechek held off Cameron Hayley in a two-lap dash to the checkers to win Saturday’s Great Clips 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event at Atlanta Motor Speedway. But it was a skull session with 2014 Sprint Cup champion Kevin Harvick the night before that was instrumental in guiding Nemechek to victory in his unsponsored No. 8 Chevrolet. “I’ve got toRead More
By Toby Christie, NASCAR Editor When the 20-minute caution clock was announced for the 2016 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season, NASCAR claimed made the rule change to create more strategy for crew chiefs in the series. Many fans and media alike feared that it would dull the series down with green-flag pit stops being eliminated. Friday night at Daytona International Speedway, the caution clock actually caused a crash on lap 41 when several drivers opted to pit just before the clock was to expire in an effort to gainRead More
