DAYTONA BEACH, Fl.— The 2016 ARCA Racing Series Champion, Chase Briscoe, scored his first top-five in NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Briscoe finished third in Friday’s NextEra Energy Resources 250.
Briscoe started the race in the 16th position, but caused an accident on the second lap. Noah Grayson went high, but Briscoe already filled the hole. The accident collected 14 cars.
Despite being involved in the wreck, Briscoe quietly rallied to finish in the third position.
“It was nerve wracking to say the least. This place makes the hair on your back stand up, especially inside the driver’s seat. It’s a great way to start my career with Brad Keseloski Racing. Im really looking forward to the rest of the year and Atlanta next week,” said Briscoe.
Briscoe was not considered a contender for most of the race, but towards the end, he worked his way into position for a great finish, despite causing a wreck in the opening laps.
