Reddick wins Truck Series season opener at Daytona
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) Tyler Reddick won the season-opening Truck Series race Friday night at Daytona International Speedway.
Reddick held the lead down the stretch in the 100-lap race, giving team owner Brad Keselowski a win. It nearly was a 1-2 finish for Brad Keselowski Racing.
Teammate Austin Theriault was tucked in behind Reddick on the final lap, but Erik Jones pulled to the outside and beat him to the finish line.
It was the first Truck Series win for Ford at Daytona since 2006, ending an eight-year winning streak for Toyota.
Fourteen trucks finished on the lead lap after a few wild crashes, including one that included more than a dozen trucks. Ben Kennedy got into the wall in the third turn, and drivers seemingly checked up behind him and created an accordion crash.
