Grant Enfinger Victorious at Richmond Raceway


ThorSport Racing Finishes 1-2-3 in First NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series Race at America’s Premier Short Track Since 2005

Austin Hill Captures NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series Regular Season Championship RICHMOND, Va. (September 10, 2020) – Grant Enfinger, driver of No. 98 for ThorSport Racing, passed his teammate Matt Crafton in the No. 88 for the lead with seven laps to go and never looked back to win the ToyotaCare 250 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series regular season finale at Richmond Raceway (Richmond). “It was definitely a special night for us,” said Enfinger. “I feel like we are going to the playoffs with some momentum. Proud of our guys. Proud of the guys on pit road.” Enfinger’s crew chief, Jeff Hensley, was also part of the winning team in the last Gander Trucks race at America’s Premier Short Track in 2005. “Fifteen years apart, but at this point in my career I’ll take a streak any way and any how I can get one,” said Hensley. “The principles are still the same, but the players are different.” Enfinger, who won the first and last race of the Gander Trucks regular season, is now tied for a series best three wins this year. He also completed his ninth top-10 finish. It was his fifth victory in 99 Gander Trucks races and first victory and top-10 finish in his series track debut at Richmond. He led 18 of the 250 laps around the iconic ¾-mile D-shaped oval at the Action Track in the ToyotaCare 250. Enfinger beat Crafton by 1.033 seconds to the finish line.
