Last night, Kevin, Sara, her friend Mia and I went to the NASCAR Truck races at the Texas Motor Speedway. But before the truck race started, the NASCAR drivers had to qualify and raced for the starting positions for this Sunday’s MENCS O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 race. Jimmie Johnson was the front runner in every round. Therefore he will be in the first position.
The VANCOR 350 NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Race began at 8:00 p.m. CDT. Darrell ‘Bubba’ Wallace (he visited Sara’s Elementary school in April 2017,) and Jesse Iwuji (he will visit Sara’s Elementary school this Monday,) were in this race. Sara and Mia waved and cheered for both drivers. Unfortunately several trucks didn’t make it through the race. One of them was Anthony Alfredo’s truck. He hit the wall after Turn 2, the truck spun out and caught on fire. Anthony Alfredo is doing well. But the truck got pretty banged up. At the end of the race, Kyle Busch was first coming through the finish line. He beat Stewart Friesen by 1.269 seconds. This was Kyle Busch’s fourth consecutive win at the Gander Outdoors Truck Series.
