Zane Smith Wins In Overtime In Truck Series Opener At Daytona

Inaugural Camping World Truck Series race at COTA | NASCAR Extended Race Highlights

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. A 17-car incident as the field approached the white flag signaling one lap to go instead sent Friday nights NextEra Energy 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season-opener into overtime where 22-year old Californian Zane Smith won under caution over defending series champion, Ben Rhodes.

A nearly 16-minute red flag was needed to clean up all the debris from the frontstretch melee, which happened only a few feet before the start-finish line and littered much of the tracks tri-oval. Had Smith the leader at the time crossed the line before the wreck began, the race would have ended. Instead, the remaining cars that were able to continue, continued.

So Smith had to do it all over again. He lined up alongside Eckes for the final two-lap run to the checkered. A sturdy nudge from behind from Parker Kligerman sent Smiths No. 38 Front Row Motorsports Ford-150 to the front and he was able to pull away taking the white flag before a caution flew on the final lap. He led only three laps on the night including the important last two.

Its something else, man, Smith said of winning at the iconic Daytona International Speedway. This place is its own, Ill tell you that. Literally, my heart hurt during that red flag. I thought we had it.

Potential And Rumored Changes

Teams

  • On July 6, 2021, AM Racing team president Kevin Cywinski stated that his team would like to field a second truck full-time, as it is part of their “long-term strategy”. The team has run a second truck twice, the No. 32 at Daytona in 2017 with Austin Wayne Self driving and the No. 37 at Knoxville in 2021 with Brett Moffitt driving.
  • On October 20, 2021, Greg Van Alst revealed that he is looking to expand his team, which he fields in the ARCA Menards Series, into the Truck Series part-time in 2022. If this happens, Van Alst himself will be the driver and it would be his debut in the series.

Drivers

  • On May 3, 2021, when it was announced that GMS Racing would be releasing Raphaël Lessard due to lack of funding, the team also stated in that announcement that Lessard could return to the team full-time in 2022 if that funding could be found. With Jack Wood, Lessard’s replacement in the GMS No. 24, already being announced to drive that truck full-time in 2022, and Sheldon Creed, Zane Smith and Tyler Ankrum leaving the Nos. 2, 21 and 26 GMS trucks respectively, it was possible that Lessard could drive one of those three trucks in 2022. However, on December 7, it was confirmed that GMS would only field 2 full-time trucks in 2022, leaving it unlikely that Lessard will drive for the team unless it is part-time in a third truck.

Nascar Xfinity Series Nascar Camping World Truck Series Schedules

NASCAR has announced the 2022 schedules for both the NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

For the NASCAR Xfinity Series and Camping World Truck Series, we loved the idea of being able to deliver new road courses to both schedules and a short track for the Camping World Trucks while still returning to our traditional venues and the new tracks we introduced in 2021, said Ben Kennedy, NASCAR senior vice president of strategy and innovation. Not only do these changes continue to deliver on what our fans are asking for, but we feel they will create even more drama and intensity as drivers battle to win championships at Phoenix Raceway in November.

Both series will open the season on consecutive days at the World Center of Racing, Daytona International Speedway. The Camping World Truck Series gets underway on February 18, with the Xfinity Series kicking off its season on February 19.

As announced earlier in the year, all three NASCAR national series seasons will culminate with NASCAR Championship Weekend at Phoenix Raceway November 46.

Nascar 2022 Driver And Team Updates

As the NASCAR season winds down, we typically look forward to all the driver and team announcements. This year, however, has given new meaning to the name, silly season.

The biggest surprise came on June 30 when Chip Ganassi Racing announced the sale of its entire NASCAR operation to Trackhouse Racing Team, effective at the end of the 2021 season.

While rumors had hinted of it in the preceding months, on July 20 it was confirmed that Brad Keselowski was leaving Penske Racing to drive the No. 6 Roush Fenway Racing Ford and will also have a minority ownership stake in the company.

One of the most anticipated changes is the introduction of the Next Gen car in 2022. After months of testing, NASCAR announced on Dec. 21 that the 670 Horsepower and the 4-inch rear spoiler will be used for all tracks except for Daytona and Talladega which will have a separate speedway package with 510 Horsepower and a 7-inch rear spoiler.
