Sheldon Creed wins Truck race on Daytona road course in overtime
Sheldon Creed held off Brett Moffitt in an overtime finish to win Sunday’s inaugural Truck Series race on the Daytona road course.
The GMS Racing driver led 19 of 46 laps and scored his second win of the year.
“Going against Brett like that is really hard, he’s really good and has a lot of experience,” Creed said of his teammate. “I owe a lot to him. He’s helped me a lot in the last year-and-a-half and to be him straight up like that is really rewarding.”
The top five was completed by Raphael Lessard, Matt Crafton and Austin Hill.
The overtime finish was setup by a caution with two laps left in the scheduled distance for Carson Hocevar’s truck stalling on the track after an incident.
With his victory, Creed also won the first $50,000 bonus of the Triple Truck Challenge.
