By Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service With his third victory of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season, John Hunter Nemechek reaffirmed Kyle Busch Motorsports’ mastery of 1.5-mile intermediate tracks on Friday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Nemechek held off Sunoco rookie Carson Hocevar over a closing 10-lap green-flag run after a violent crash at the entrance to the tri-oval stripped the body off Johnny Sauter’s No. 13 Toyota and slowed the race for nine caution laps. The victory was Nemechek’s first at Charlotte and the ninth of his career.Read More
By Holly Cain, NASCAR Wire Service Sheldon Creed won his second NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series race in the last three weeks, holding off former series champion Brett Moffitt by a mere .881-second to take the trophy in Sunday afternoon’s CarShield 200 Presented by CK Power at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway. It was the 22-year old Californian’s third career win and significantly, his second victory in the season’s three-race Triple Truck Challenge just this month, which earned him a $150,000 bonus payday.

But even that challenge wasn’t enough to keep Busch from victory. He added to his record series win total – extending that mark of excellence to 58 trophies, taking the checkered flag 2.847-seconds ahead of Tyler Ankrum, Ross Chastain, ChaseRead More

By Seth Eggert, Staff Writer A top-10 finish in the Kansas Lottery 300 was a refreshing change of pace for Ty Majeski. The NASCAR Xfinity Series driver earned just his second top-10 finish of the season, which has produced underwhelming results. On the final green flag run, Majeski was one of just eight drivers left on the lead lap at Kansas Speedway. In the uneventful run to the finish, the Roush Fenway Racing Program 60 driver slipped backward. Majeski dropped from sixth to eighth by the time the checkered flagRead More
