In a rain shortened NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series event at Kentucky Speedway, GMS Racing’s Sheldon Creed grabbed his first checkered flag of his career becoming the 17th different driver in the last five seasons to get their first career win in the Gander Trucks.
The big victory propelled Creed two spots in the driver standings to second just 46 points behind Austin Hill in the standings lead. The win not only guarantees Creed’s spot in the Playoffs is also padded his Playoff points total (eight – second most behind Grant Enfinger). In seven starts this season, the Alpine, California star has put up one win (Kentucky), three top fives, five top 10s and a career-best average finish of 8.9.
Looking ahead to Texas this weekend, expect Creed to run upfront. He has made three series starts at the 1.5-mile facility posting a career-best finish of sixth last season. But also keep a look out for another driver adding their name to the first-time winners list as Texas Motor Speedway has been the home to five first-time Gander Truck winners all-time.
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
