Creed Dominates For First Super Truck Victory
Heavy contact between the two trucks would send both drivers spinning out of control. With the tremendous lead on the field, both trucks would regain their position back in the running order. However, the No. 98 of Jones would acquire enough front-end damage in the contact resulting in fading back in the running order and eventually having to pit for repairs.
Justin Lofton would capitalize on the caution flag on lap four as the Lofton Cattle No. 6 was on the move over taking the third spot from Tracy. Nothing could stop Creed, as he would pull back away from the field on cruise control.
Trouble would find the first place starter Tracy on Lap-6 as he made heavy contact with the wall, causing severe damage to the SportsNet truck ending his return to racing in front of the hometown fans.
Lap seven trouble would strike third running Justin Lofton as he would encounter a loss of motor performance, resulting in the surrendering of multiple positions.
The No. 7 SPEED Energy truck driven by Robby Gordon would make his presence known on lap seven moving into the top three, recovering from in an early race spin.
In convincing fashion Creed, would go on to secure his name in the record books as the youngest winner in SST history. Robby Gordon would cross the finish line a distant second while Davey Hamilton would grab his first podium finish rounding out the top-3.
“Getting my first SST win, I have been searching for this for awhile. Starting third I knew I needed to get away fast. It just wanted to run away from the pack, I did not want to get into the whole bumping and rubbing,” said Creed. “I knew if I got in front of P.J. he was going to give it to me today, and he did. I looked in the mirror, and I was waiting for it, and he finally hit me we both ended up spinning out. P.J. and I were so checked out it ended up working out good. On the restart, he was right there again bumping me and pushing me all the way down the straightaway.”
