Tyler Ankrum heads to Richmond looking to secure a spot in the Gander Trucks playoffs for the second consecutive year. Ankrum and the No. 26 have been consistent in recent weeks. Ankrum has earned six top-10 finishes since the series returned from the break and, with the exception of the Kansas double header, has not finished worse than 16th in that time frame.- Ankrum is currently ninth in points entering Richmond, 14 points above the playoff cutoff line.-

Ankrum and the No. 26 will utilize chassis No. 311 Thursday night in Richmond. This chassis had five top-six finishes in six races in 2019.


“Richmond is a complete wild card race and nobody really knows what’s going to happen. The trucks haven’t been there in so long that we’re really relying on simulator time and manufacturer support for our set ups. It’s shaping up to be the most exciting short track racing, especially with the playoff cutoff. For the 26 team this weekend is about being perfect, running up front, getting all the points you can and going for a win.”
