(LOUDON, NH) New Hampshire Motor Speedway hosted the second round of the ASRS Camping World Truck Series Chase for the Championship and 36 drivers attempted to qualify for the 32 truck field. Four drivers missed the race; Kris Titus, Steve Trombly, Kevin Mingus and Todd Kirkwood.
Jake Douglas led the field to the green flag in the #49 with Bradley Cross alongside for the green flag. One truck, Mitch Brown, did not fire on the grid and was relegated to a 32nd place finish. The race went green for the first 12 laps before the first caution flew.
Pete Baskins took the lead under the caution and held it for three laps before giving way to Douglas shortly after the restart. Shawn Musick was the only other driver to lead a lap, as he also remained on the track under a mid-race caution.
Jake Douglas had the field covered at New Hampshire, as the #49 Silverado was the class of the field, although it wasn’t easy. Douglas had to fend off challenges from Sam Maxwell and Jared Mogard late in the going.
A late race green flag run of 32 laps brought the field to the checkered flag and Douglas wore the field out, building his lead to over 4 seconds at the finish. Sam Maxwell was second, followed by Jared Mogard in third, Brad Cross fourth and Danny Rodgers fifth.
The Chase for the Championship battle saw a shake up as Robby Baskins continues to lead, Zack Calloway now is second by 23 points. Calloway moved up in the standings as a result of Jim Foose’s 20th place finish after being caught up in a crash mid-race.
