Tyler Ankrum, No. 26 LiUNA Chevrolet Silverado
Notes & Quotes:
- Tyler Ankrum started third for Saturday night’s event and felt comfortable with his LiUNA Silverado in the early stages of the race and would finish Stage One in the fifth position. The team pitted for fuel, four tires and a trackbar adjustment in anticipation of the truck tightening up as the race progressed. Ankrum battled with lapped traffic and slower trucks that had stayed out under the break for most of the second stage. Ankrum ultimately finished 16th after the race was called at the end of Stage Two due to weather.
- Ankrum is currently ninth in championship points standings, three points above the playoff cutoff line.
“Good effort by my team tonight, we had a good truck and I think we could’ve been around at the finish if we had been able to run the entire race. We took four tires at the end of Stage One and just got trapped battling with some guys that gambled and we don’t usually have to worry about. We’re still in the fight and we’ll move on to Texas.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
