The NASCAR Cup Series and the Camping World Truck Series head to Bristol Motor Speedway this weekend for some much anticipated dirt track racing. It will be the first time since 1970 that the Cup Series has competed on a dirt track.
The NASCAR Camping World Truck wrapped up another exciting season of thrilling finishes and fresh faces in victory lane, as well as familiar faces who had a career high season. If this continues next year, 2019 will just be as exciting as 2018.
The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series went to South Florida this past weekend for the final race of the year. It was the site where a new champion was crowned and for the first time ever, the champion won the last race of the year and the championship at the same time.
Johnny Sauter, the 2016 NASCAR Truck Series Champion, was looking to become a two-time champion after making it to the Championship 4 for the third consecutive year in a row. Unfortunately, the team just missed it Friday night at Homestead-Miami Speedway and finished a disappointing 12th after a record high six wins in 2018, the most he's ever had in his career in one season.
Noah Gragson was looking to end the year on a high note at Homestead-Miami Speedway before he moves up to the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2019. However, his night went sour with 33 laps to go. A tire issue on his No. 18 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota prevented him from winning the championship and the race after a tremendous battle with Brett Moffit.
Justin Haley had quite the year with three wins which locked him into the Championship 4 after winning at Texas just a few weeks ago. However, the No. 24 GMS Racing team just couldn't find the magic Friday night at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
