The North Carolina Education Lottery 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Friday night came down to a battle between two drivers who started in the back. Kasey Kahne won the pole but fell to the back after his team changed a shock on his truck, and Erik Jones qualified second but, like Kahne, was forced to drop to the back at the start after arriving late for the mandatory drivers’ meeting. Both made their ways to the front to be in position to battle for the win in the closing laps.
Kahne won the race by a 0.005-second margin of Jones, the second-closest winning margin in Truck Series history, but his truck failed post-race inspection. NASCAR reported after the race that Kahne’s No. 00 JR Motorsports Chevrolet was too low on both sides and too high in the right-rear. A penalty is expected to be announced Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.
