Successful NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Debut for Moffitt
Grimes, IA – Brett Moffitt made his debut in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) on Thursday, June 27th, in the No. 13 ThorSport Racing AISIN Toyota Tundra. He brought home a very respectable 14th place finish in the UNOH 225 at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, KY, on the notoriously bumpy but fast 1.5 mile asphalt circuit.
At a racetrack where a casino is an integral part of the complex, Todd Bodine gambled and won big.
Despite spinning early in Friday’s rain-shortened Lucas Oil 200, Bodine remained on the lead leap, and with a contrarian pit strategy, he worked his way into the lead. When rain forced NASCAR to call the race after 147 laps, Bodine was the winner, breaking a drought of 37 races dating to 2010.
The two-time series champion won for the 22nd time in his career after fending off an assault from Parker Kligerman, the race runner-up. Pole-sitter Kevin Harvick, who dominated the first half of the race, was third when NASCAR called the event after a second stoppage for rain.
MARTINSVILLE, Va. — Kevin Harvick may have relinquished ownership in his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series team, but he hasn’t lost any speed in the process.
Harvick crushed the rest of the field in Saturday’s Kroger 250, winning in seemingly effortless fashion by .953 seconds over Richard Childress Racing teammate Ty Dillon.
