Kasey Kahne's winning ride at the Darlington Too Tough To Tame 200.
There were probably 2,500 fans on pit road before the race, many of them kids. All drivers were stationed to sign autographs for an hour. That turned into an hour and a half, or longer, for some drivers. Austin Dillon was the last to leave.
Parker Kliggerman had a decent 14th place run in Brad Keselowski's #29 truck.
Elliott Sadler was up front all night. I took several pics of the trucks as they rolled out of inspection, like this one. E Sad was sponsored by Vienna Sausages. They were handing out free samples.... I was NOT that hungry!
Sadler's teammate, fellow KHI driver, Ron Hornaday scored a second place finish in this sweet Tide Ride.
By far, the most popular full time driver in the Truck Series is the pilot of this black #3, Ausin Dillon.
Rookie, Jeffery Earnhardt, crashed in practice. Here we have his crew working hard to prep the backup truck. They were at it for several hours and still missed qualifying. Earnhardt started on the last row, yet finished on the lead lap.
The #20 of rookie, Johanna Long rolls towards the pre-race inspectors. Long was involved in the night's biggest wreck, along the front stretch, and caused the action to be red flagged.
The G.O.A.T., Ricky Carmichael, was a sitting duck, across the start finish line when he was drilled by Long.
The pole winning Red Bull truck of rookie, Cole Whitt. Whitt set a track record, and impressed the hell out of me. When he was out front, no one could touch him. It was his first visit to Darlington, and he was a lot better than some 10 year vets I've seen there.
The winning truck from KBM rolls through pre-race inspection. This inspector, and one on the other side, is checking the clearance between the under carriage and the asphalt. This is the last of three pre-race inspection stations.
