Crafton wins Truck Series race at Kansas Speedway

Matt Crafton took the checkered flag in Saturday’s NASCAR Truck Series race, winning the E.P.T. 200 at Kansas Speedway.

Driving the No. 88 Ford, Crafton edged out Christian Ekes and Grant Enfinger for the win — his first since July 2017.

Tanner Gray came in fourth and Ben Rhodes rounded out the top five.

“It’s very, very sweet,” Crafton told FS1. “Not a lot of give up in these guys … The 18 (Eckes) had a little bit of speed, he was making me nervous right there. … I drove it in too deep a couple times, slid the nose. I’d slide the nose and he’d make up ground.”

Zane Smith, who won the first two stages, finished in ninth place.

The race was the second Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series race in consecutive days at the Kansas City, Kan., track. Crafton finished fourth Friday night in a race won by Austin Hill, who finished sixth on Saturday.

Derek Kraus, Brandon Jones, Smith, and Chase Purdy rounded out the top 10 on Saturday.
