CTS: Heim cruises to victory in rain delayed Wright Brand 250 at North Wilkesboro Speedway

A rained out qualifying session would put Christan Eckes over Nick Sanchez, but it would be Chastain getting a jump to take the second spot away quickly as Sammy Smith would get penalized on the opening lap for pulling out of line prior to the start finish line.

While racing three wide Ben Rhodes would sustain damage after making contact with Brent Holmes after getting pinched up the track by Majeski.

Eckes would continue to dominate the first stage before the weather would bring out the first caution of the day with just eight laps remaining in the stage. Eckes who led the way would take the opportunity to make changes on pit road leaving four trucks still out on track that decided not to pit.

Heim would beat Eckes off pit road, but it would be Ty Majeski that would take control of the race on the restart with three laps to go in the stage. Majeski would lead the final three laps of the stage to take home the opening stage win of the day followed by Rhodes, Caruth, Tay. Gray and Heim rounded out the top-five.

While still under the stage caution lightning would affect the area bringing out the first red flag of the day and bringing a stop to the race.

After a more than 21-plus hour delay for a red flag for biblical rain surpassing five inches that flooded the track, power outages and muddy parking lots, the conclusion of the truck series would finally get underway just after 11:30 am on Sunday leading into the All Star Race later in the night.

Shortly after getting back under green, Caruth would go for a spin off turn two to bring out the third caution of the event. Less than 20 laps later, Alan would go for a spin in the same area of turn two as Caruth to bring out the fourth caution of the event.

Stage two would end with Holmes bringing out the fifth caution of the day after spinning off turn two. Ankrum would take the stage win over Garcia, Friesen, Wood, and Riggs rounding out the top-five.

Caution would once again come out when Connor Jones would spin off turn four bringing out the sixth caution of the day. NASCAR would call Jones to the hauler post race.

Heim would jump out with the lead on the final restart of the day to lead the remaining 65 laps caution free of the day taking home his third win of the 2024 Craftsman Truck Series season. Rounding out the top-five of the day would be Enfinger who had battled with Riggs in the final laps to finish second followed by Riggs.

Coming in fourth would be Brenden “Butterbean” Queen who won the CARS Tour event in 2023 at North Wilkesboro returning this week for his NASCAR Truck Series debut.

The NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series now moves onto Charlotte Motor Speedway this Friday night at 8:30 p.m. ET on FS1.
