GRANT ENFINGER TURNS A TRACK-BEST START INTO A TRACK-B EST FINISH, FINISHING SECOND AT ELDORA SPEEDWAY

“I feel like we had the position on him (Chase Briscoe) – we really had equal trucks. Both of our ThorSport Racing Ford F-150’s was really, really good. Really equal. I thought I had the spot on him in Turns 3 and 4 – he kinda used us up down there. Nothing dirty, same thing I would have done, just the last lap at Eldora for a really big race. Congratulations to those guys, but man I wish we could have gotten one for this No. 98 Protect The Harvest Team. All-and-all a good points night for us with three races to go.”

Notes:

  • The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) had two practice sessions on Tuesday evening in preparation for Wednesday night’s Eldora Dirt Derby at Eldora Speedway. Enfinger was third, and 12th, respectively, in each session.
  • The No. 98 Protect The Harvest Ford F-150 was fourth in single truck qualifying on Wednesday afternoon.
  • Enfinger lined-up first in Heat Race No. 4, and finished second, earning a ninth-place starting position for the main event.
  • Starting a track-best ninth, Enfinger finished seventh in Stage 1, and second in Stage 2. Restarting the final Stage from the second position, Enfinger battled with teammate and eventual race winner, Chase Briscoe on the final lap of an overtime shootout, but settled for a second-place finish in the sixth annual event at the half-mile clay oval.
