DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) Reigning NASCAR Truck Series champion Sheldon Creed won for the first time this season, moving past Ben Rhodes on a restart three laps from the end and holding on for victory at Darlington Raceway on Friday night.
Creed raced to his sixth career victory. He'd been shutout since he won the close the 2020 season at Phoenix and capture the truck championship.
He wasn't much of a factor until the final laps as crashes - including a 17-car pileup with 30 laps left - knocked out several stronger cars including points leader John Hunter Nemechek.
