Sheldon Creed wins Truck finale and title in wild OT finish

Creed and fellow title contender Zane Smith pit for tires before the final restart in overtime while Brett Moffitt – then the race leader – and Grant Enfinger stayed out on older tires.

As the overtime began, trucks fanned out five-wide with Moffitt getting swallowed up by the field and Chandler Smith briefly grabbed the lead before Creed passed him with one lap remaining.

Creed held off Zane Smith on the final lap to claim the win – his fifth of the season and his career. Creed’s championship is his first in just his second fulltime season. It’s the second Trucks title for GMS Racing.

“Good truck, I was just way too loose as the race went on. When the caution came out, we decided to put tires on it and I pride myself on my restarts week-in and week-out,” Creed said. “I just nailed it right there.

“They were racing really hard. I wanted this so bad. I almost spun out on the entry to Turn 1. I don’t know how I did it – I just drove as hard as I could. I knew if I did, I’d have a shot.

“My whole family – we got like 20 camping spots out here. I’m going to drink some cold beer tonight.”

Chandler Smith ended up third, Christian Eckes fourth and Raphael Lessard rounded out the top-five.

Rounding out the top-10 were Stewart Friesen, Ben Rhodes, Tyler Ankrum, Todd Gilliland and Moffitt ended up 10th.
