Heart of America 200 Recap

KANSAS Speedway

Start: 3rd | Finish: 15th | Driver Points: 21st | Owner Points: 24th

Race Recap: Ty Dillon scored a 15th-place finish in Friday night’s NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Heart of America 200 from Kansas.

Matching the team’s best-ever qualifying position of third, Dillon started the race with stellar track position. It didn’t take long for the driver to report a loose condition in the No. 25 Rackely Roofing / W.A.R. Shocks Chevrolet, and by the end of stage one, he’d dropped to ninth while describing the handling as “way too loose on entry.”

A speedy pit stop by the Rackley W.A.R. crew allowed Dillon to gain three spots and move up to sixth for the restart. But the progression was short-lived as the driver reported the truck “too loose in” and “not enough downforce.”

By the end of stage two, Dillon found himself 15th. In an attempt to tighten up the handling, crew chief Shane Wilson called for a four-tire pit stop in addition to a track bar adjustment under the stage break. The extended stop saw Dillon restart 20th for stage three.

Stage three went caution-free for the final 67 laps. Following a round of green-flag pit stops, Dillon had gained five positions to 15th as the first truck one lap down, where he remained until the checkered flag flew.
