Brett Moffitt, driving a white sponsor-less truck for GMS Racing, scored his ninth career win on Friday night at Chicagoland Speedway while earning his second Gander Outdoors Truck Series victory of the season. Moffitt, a driver from Grimes, Iowa, led the field for 72 of the 150 circuits en route to victory lane.

The win comes under two-weeks of being awarded as the winner at Iowa Speedway after original race winner Ross Chastain failed post-race inspection. Moffitt started third and finished third in both stages.

Brandon Jones challenged for the lead throughout the 225-mile event in his No. 51 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota. The driver from Georgia led 13 circuits and won stage one and sat second behind Grant Enfinger in stage two.

Jones leaves Chicagoland Speedway with two top five and two top 10 finishes through three starts in 2019.

Stewart Friesen rounded out the top three finishers in Friday’s Camping World 225. The driver from Canada leaves the 1.5-mile oval with seven top five and eight top 10 finishes through 12 races.

Harrison Burton and pole sitter Austin Hill rounded out the top five.

Todd Gilliland, Ross Chastain, Matt Crafton, Anthony Alfredo and Dylan Lupton rounded out the top 10.

Grant Enfinger, winner of stage two, had one of the fastest trucks going into the evening until lap 80. The No. 98 Champion Power Equipment Ford was involved in a three-truck melee in turn two that also involved Austin Wayne Self and Spencer Davis. Enfinger continued and finished 16th while Austin Wayne Self and Davis were done for the night.

Dylan Lupton made his third career start in the series since 2016 for DGR-Crosley. The driver of the No. 5 Toyota started ninth on the leaderboard and finished both stages sitting 10th.

The race saw 12 lead changes and seven leaders throughout the night. A total of five caution flags slowed the field while 22 trucks finished running.

The driver from California scored his first top 10 finish in the Gander Outdoors Truck Series.

The series will return to action at Kentucky Speedway on July 11. The Kentucky 225 will air live on FS1 and MRN Radio at 7:30 p.m. ET.
