Modern-day NASCAR is rather interesting with its playoff format, and the final race of the season, regardless of the series, is going to have four drivers competing to win the title. The highest finisher takes it home, and on Friday night at Phoenix that man was Sheldon Creed.
Creed, a 23-year old from California, won his fifth Gander Trucks Series race of the season, and in doing so won the championship as well. He did it in thrilling fashion. Brett Moffitt had been cruising toward it, some three seconds ahead of fellow contender Grant Enfinger with two laps to go. But a caution came out. That prompted Creed and Zane Smith- the others eligible to win the title- to come to pit road. Creed made his new tires count in the final two-lap dash, easily charging his way up front by the end of the first lap and then running away to win it all.
