Truck Series race tough on title contenders
Multiple drivers face different obstacles at Talladega TALLADEGA, Ala. -- "Ladies and gentlemen, congratulations -- you got your money's worth," Spencer Gallagher exclaimed after the finish of an action-packed fred's 250 powered by Coca-Cola at Talladega Superspeedway . The track threw its best at the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series title contenders, with penalties, wrecks and debris shaking up the points standings several times throughout the 95 laps. It all started with points leader Matt Crafton . The No. 88 pitted under the race's first caution and as Crafton pulled out of his pit stall, the neon yellow Menards/Fishers Nuts Toyota got into the back of the No. 99 of Bryan Silas as he turned into his own stall, doing damage to both trucks and turning around the No. 99. An additional pit stop was required to fix the damage of the No. 88, after which Crafton battled visibility issues. "We definitely had a lot to overcome," Crafton said after the race. "We got our first pit stop, got tore up on pit road. Then after that, it was downhill. I had so much chatter on the radio. 'What do I do? Do I wait back here? I'm stuck back here.' " After making his way back into the top three, Crafton got an unwelcome push draft from the No. 8 of Joe Nemechek . The result was a black flag from NASCAR, which sent both cars to pit road to serve a pass-through penalty. "They're black-flagging us, and I don't get it," the No. 88 crew chief Carl Joiner said over the radio to a furious Crafton. "Tell Joe, 'Thanks a lot, you (expletive) idiot.' " Crafton's teammate Johnny Sauter didn't have an easier time at the restrictor-plate track. He ran over debris 20 laps into the race, and a punctured radiator caused the No. 98 to fall off the pace at Lap 25 without any warning. "Another kick in the (expletive)," Sauter said as his team worked in the garage. Sauter came to Talladega in second place in the standings, 19 points behind Crafton, with an anything-goes attitude, saying, "If it works out, great, if not, oh well. That's just the attitude you have to have." That attitude changed quickly. "Championship's over, and from here on out we can just race like hell," Sauter lamented from the garage. Even Ryan Blaney , who made his way into Sauter's second-place position in the points standings, 16 points behind Crafton, had to battle his way up the points standings. En route to his 19th top-five finish of his Truck Series career, the Brad Keselowski Racing driver earned a speeding penalty during green-flag pit stops on Lap 44, sending him a lap down after running at the front for 30 of the race's first 43 laps. "We gained about 10 (points) on Matt so that was good," Blaney said. "We had a great … truck. I made a mistake early and sped on pit road and that kind of put us back a little bit. But we got right back up to the front really fast." Darrell Wallace Jr. , hoping for his first champagne celebration in Victory Lane after turning 21 earlier in the month, started the race in 27th, but teamed up with eventual race-winner Timothy Peters early on to move into the top 10 by Lap 4. Wallace ended the day in third place in the standings, 28 points behind Crafton after a ninth-place finish, while Peters earned the title of biggest mover toward the top of the points standings, moving into fifth from seventh, cutting 18 points off his deficit. "Obviously we know that the championship might be out our reach, but who knows, maybe we could pull the Hornaday and win the rest 'em and be right back in it," Peters said. After picking the wrong line on a final restart, Crafton went home with a 14th-place finish. Thorsport Racing teammate Sauter was unable to get back onto the track, finishing 71 laps down in 31st. When the dust settled at one of NASCAR's most unpredictable tracks, however, Crafton lost only three points of his buffer at the top of the leaderboard. "At least we got out of here somewhat in decent shape," Crafton said. As his teammate knows, Talladega could have done much worse.

Tyler Reddick wins season opener at Daytona
19-year-old scores first NASCAR national series win just 18th start Play: NASCAR Fantasy Live MORE: Full race results " Updated standings DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.— As trucks fanned out four-wide behind him, Tyler Reddick took the first checkered flag of his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series career in Friday night's NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona International Speedway. Behind the race winner, Erik Jones charged to the outside to grab the runner-up spot, followed by Scott Lagasse Jr. and Austin Theriault, Reddick's Brad Keselowski Racing teammate. Teamwork between the two BKR trucks was crucial to Reddick's maiden win. "I just had all the confidence in the world in our trucks going into the race," Reddick said. "If we were able to get together, we were going to be able to do some great things together and help each other out. Once I knew we finally we got together on the front row for those restarts, I had a pretty good feeling that we were controlling the race and controlling the pack. "I just can't tell you how much it means to have a teammate there helping me get my first win. I just hope I can do the same for him on down the road." "He owes the 29 (Theriault) big," Lagasse agreed, "because the 29 did some door-slamming to help him." Jones surged from fourth to first off the final corner, after he and Lagasse lagged back to get a run on the leader. "Scott and I were kind of dragging back, trying to see if we could get a run to the top there," Jones said. "When the 29 and the 19 (Reddick) came off of (Turn) 4, the 29 never lagged back. He just tried to pull out and make the pass on the 19. "When he did that, it just opened the door for Scott on the bottom, and I was dragged back a little bit more than he was and got the pull off both of them. I went to the top and saw the opening and (ended up) running second. Just kind of a typical Daytona thing, I guess." A massive wreck on Lap 49 of 100 wiped out a third of the field, but the two Brad Keselowski Racing trucks managed to stay out of harm's way by staying up front for the vast majority of the race. By the time the hood flew up on Bryan Silas' No. 99 Chevrolet, covered the windshield and forced the truck to pit road, there were 13 trucks on the lead lap, with Reddick and Theriault in the top two spots. Silas returned to the track sans hood, but on Lap 85 the air cleaner dislodged from the top of the engine, landed on the racing surface and caused the fifth caution of the evening. Reddick and Theriault paced the field to a restart on Lap 89 and held the top two spots until Ryan Ellis' Chevy slowed on the track and caused the sixth caution with eight laps remaining, setting up the scramble to the finish at the end. Note: Defending series champion Matt Crafton finished eighth ... Rookie Ray Black Jr. ran fifth, despite sustaining damage during a Lap 13 accident that caused the first caution of the evening.
