In a stunning upset on Thursday night at Bristol Motor Speedway, rookie Chandler Smith stole a victory from reigning NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion Sheldon Creed, clinched a spot in the Round of 8 of the Playoffs and eliminated Todd Gilliland from the postseason.
Ty Gibbs and Sammy Smith dominated the action from start to finish at the Bush’s Beans 200, with Gibbs rolling to a decisive win and Smith following in second. The finish secured the 2021 ARCA Menards Series East championship for the 17-year-old Smith, while Gibbs picked up his 10th victory of the season while remarkably leading all 200 laps of the race at The Last Great Colosseum.
With the prospect for mayhem and chaos that lurks around every high banked turn at Bristol Motor Speedway, having a ticket that’s already been punched to the next round of the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs has to be a very comforting feeling for drivers in the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race on Saturday, Sept. 18 (7:30 p.m., NBCSN and PRN Radio).
