Nick Sanchez won Friday nights NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Sanchez took advantage of new tires during a late race restart. Sanchez went from 10th on a restart with nine laps to go and went on to win the race.

With his win, Sanchez collected $50,000 bonus as part of the Triple Truck Challenge.

“It’s awesome my No. 2 Gainbridge Chevrolet,” Sanchez said post-race. “What can I say more about this team. We started off bad. It didn’t affect us. We went to work. We put ourselves in position when it mattered most.”

Sanchez crossed the finish line with a 0.507 second lead over Corey Heim in second.

During inspection after the race, NASCAR found that only three lug nuts were attached to Heim’s tire. Ultimately that would result in Heim being disqualified in the race that would give Stewart Friesen the second place finish.

Heim, who was disqualified had led the most laps of the race with 72. Sanchez only led nine laps.

Rounding out the top five were Stewart Friesen in second, Grant Enfinger in third, Matt Mills in fourth and Ben Rhodes in fifth.

Eckes, who was the points leader going into Charlotte, started from the rear after contact from Kaden Honeycutt’s Chevrolet during practice and prevented Eckes from making a qualifying run. During the race, Alternator problems kept him on pit road for longer stops during the stage breaks. Eckes, however would recover to take the lead after staying out during a restart on Lap 88. Eckes would decide to pit under the last caution giving up his lead and he would take four new tires during the pit stop. Eckes would fall to 10th at the finish.

The NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series heads to Worldwide Technology Raceway on Saturday, June 1st at 1:30 p.m. Eastern on FS1.
