Moffitt grabs first Truck win at Kansas, advances to title race

Moffitt held off a furious challenge from his GMS Racing teammate Sheldon Creed in a two-lap overtime to win Saturday’s Clean Harbors 200 at Kansas Speedway, his first win this season and in more than a year.

With the win, Moffitt becomes the first driver to advance to the Championship 4 and compete for the series title at Phoenix regardless of his performance over the next two weeks. Moffitt won the 2018 series title.

The win is the 12th of Moffitt’s Truck career.

“It’s pretty incredible – such a way to turn our season around for this No. 23 team,” Moffitt said. “It’s been a long time since I’ve been in Victory Lane. Thanks to everyone at GMS.

“I got to apologize to (Zane Smith) for trying to block him. We were racing hard for a championship spot and that’s what you got to do. It was a bad block by me. It’s my fault.

“He got around me there in lapped traffic and I just put it on the line to run him back down. We got there and I tried to throw a block. We’re racing for everything right now. I apologize to Zane. I know that’s not going to fix it but hopefully they can win next week.”

Austin Hill ended up third, Grant Enfinger fourth and Chandler Smith rounded out the top-five.

Completing the top-10 were Christian Eckes, Timothy Peters, Matt Crafton, Derek Kraus and Trevor Bayne.
