Travis Kvapil Finished 11th in NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Race at Bristol
NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series racer Travis Kvapil had a strong run going at Bristol Motor Speedway in Tennessee in his No.6 K&N Filters Ford F-150.
K&N Filters No. 6 Ford F-150
The win was in sight until it was taken away with a late race spin. Kvapil was in the top five in both practice sessions and qualified on the pole with a 15.840-second lap around the track. He also led 91 laps of the 200-lap race but finished in 11th place.
Kvapil had the lead until lap 26. The second caution of the day came out on lap 33. Everyone had a different idea for pit strategy, and the No.6 K&N Filters Ford F-150 sat ninth for the green-flag restart on lap 45.
Kvapil headed back toward the front of the pack. At lap 63 he was in third place and the third caution came out on lap 69. The green came back out on lap 74 and Kvapil took over 2nd place six laps later and had his eyes on the leader.
The fourth caution came out on lap 103 and the leader decided to pit. That put Kvapil with the lead for the restart on lap 108. The second half of the race was filled with cautions but Kvapil managed to hang-on to the lead. He dominated until lap 170 when the second-place truck of Kyle Busch got loose under Kvapil’s No.6 and sent them both spinning. Kvapil was able to keep his wheels spinning and not flat spot his tires which left him on the track to try and regain some track position.
The field restarted on lap 184 with Kvapil in the 12th position. He was able to pass one truck and earn an 11th place finish after leading the most laps out of anyone in the field.
“My truck was a little loose and I thought we could keep it on the outside and run pretty good up there,” said Kvapil. “That was kind of the plan. I was willing to give up the bottom because my truck was just too loose. I needed to just let it roll around the outside. I’m pretty sure I gave Kyle Busch enough room out there, but he just got up into me a little bit and that’s all it took.”
