Zane Smith A Back-To-Back Bride’s Maid

For much of Friday’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship finale, it looked like the 22-year-old Californian Zane Smith may pull off the season upset. He was the leading the championship-eligible driver up until eight laps to go when Ben Rhodes passed him.

Instead, the driver of the No. 21 GMS Racing Chevrolet finished fifth in his second Championship 4 appearance in as many career Truck seasons.

“I just needed my truck to turn, we struggled since we unloaded,” said Smith, who scored a dramatic victory at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway last week to literally win a shot at the championship.

“We were eight laps away from winning the championship, really,” Smith said, sitting on pit road while fireworks went off in the distance behind him.

“I almost got Chevrolet another one. I tried using all my tools from my side of things, but just could not get the thing to turn and struggled with that all night.”

TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
