(NASCAR.com) Zane Smith made a last-lap pass in double overtime to earn his first career NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series victory Friday night in the Henry Ford Health System 200 at Michigan International Speedway.
The 21-year old Smith held off his friend, Sunoco rookie Christian Eckes, by a mere .318 seconds for the victory and his official berth into the upcoming 2020 series playoffs. Their duel was made possible after the race’s most dominant driver, Grant Enfinger, was taken from the lead on the restart in a three-truck collision at the front of the field involving 2019 Michigan race winner Austin Hill and NASCAR Cup Series rookie John Hunter Nemechek.
Former NHRA champion-turned NASCAR rookie Tanner Gray finished a career-best third, followed by Tyler Ankrum (fourth) and Todd Gilliland (fifth). The average age of the top five finishers was 20 years old.
Brett Moffitt, Raphael Lessard, Derek Kraus, Parker Kligerman and World of Outlaws sprint-car star David Gravel rounded out the top 10 in order. It was a career-best finish for Lessard as well.
