Harrison Burton had one of the best nights of his young NASCAR Camping World Truck Series career at ISM Raceway Friday night, but he still was not satisfied. He led a race-high 46 laps, led the entire 45-lap second stage and tied his best finish in the Truck Series, but his night did not end in Victory Lane as he hoped it would.
 
Stage One Recap:
  • Burton started third in his DEX Imaging Tundra.
  • He pitted for right-side tires during an early caution on lap 28. Although it dropped him back to seventh, the payoff came when he ended the stage in fourth place and he assumed the lead by not pitting during the stage break.
 
Stage Two Recap:
  • Burton dominated the second 45-lap stage leading from start to finish.
  • When the pits opened on lap 94, he came in for four tires and fuel to finish the race.
 
Stage Three Recap:
  • Burton was second to start the final 60-lap stage.
  • He settled into fourth place for most of the remaining laps, but a caution with nine laps to go changed the landscape of the race.
  • The race resumed with three laps remaining and Burton was fourth. He fought for the lead, but did not want to risk any altercation with his KBM teammate Noah Gragson who was fighting for the final spot in the championship race next weekend.
  • He crossed the finish line third, tying his best finish earlier this season at Iowa Speedway in June.
