    After a week off to observe the holiday, the SRD Trucks are back at the 2.66 mile monster known as Talladega. Constructed in 1969 on the defunct Anniston Air Force base, Talladega Superspeedway has been host of countless races, as well as a handful of NASCAR records. Including, the fastest qualifying lap ever set by Awesome Bill Elliott with a lap of 212.809 mph back in 1987.

    This will only be the SRD Truck Series' second apparence at Dega as the last time we were here in 2016, it was D.J. Harris taking home the checkers.

    Last Week: A much cleaner affair than the previous week at Iowa, we only saw one caution for Devin Coleman to win the opening stage, but we saw just as much action! Starting with Ray Tustin only 12 laps in, Tustin getting caught in a fight for real estate and found himself getting shoved straight uptrack into the outside retaining wall, he would be able to continue. Next, on lap 18 Jon Peterson pulls to the pit lane off pace clearly with trouble. His crew does repair but send him out anyway incredibly off pace. We'll talk about him more in a minute. Green flag pit stops came on lap 25, and another close call as Noah Joyce gets a shove off of turn four by Joshua Hawkins as he goes sliding through the frontstretch grass. He was able to continue but would struggle the rest of the day. Lap 41, the leaders catch Peterson for the first of many encounters with the off pace truck, he gets caught in front of the top lane and everyone stuck behind him loses major ground. We'd see this a few times throughout the day. In the end it was the rookie, Dom Karda saving just enough fuel to get back to the line first for his first career victory.
    Race Info:
    Race length: 76 laps, 202 miles
    Stage 1: 38 laps
    Stage 2: 38 laps

    PAST POLESITTERS/WINNERS:
    2016: Brandon Chastra (50.757)/ D.J. Harris

    "Alright Talladega... Let's hope that we found a good superspeedway race pace in the #98 Precure Silverado after the disappointment in our previous superspeedway race at Coca-Cola. More importantly though, I want the car to finish the race in one piece..."

    EDIT: "Wait, we're 23rd? Dang it. Oh well, it's a superspeedway race, grid spot often doesn't matter because the position shuffled so much in this type of racing. Peterson won from last place at Armory Digital last year, so anyone will get an equal chance today."

    After some bizarre scoring error, we are now pulling on track for pace laps.

    Ben Althen tried to immediately jump to the outside on the start but will get no help, he'll fall outside the top ten heading through one and two.

    Reza Maulana, one of the drivers hurt the most from the Qualifying scoring error (8th to 23rd) has already worked his way into the top ten.

    Lap Three (LEAD CHANGE): With help from Maulana, Jacob Craigo is going to take his Ram to the lead on the high side heading into turn three! Pole sitter Brendon Hancock has fallen all the way back to 24th

    Lap 4: Four-wide now in the middle of the pack, the only safe place right now may be out front

    Lap 7: Bobby Farrell has made his out to the front, he really needs a good run given how his season has played out so far. Playoff drivers Fiorentini, Kurz, and Ehresman all currently in the top ten.

    Lap 8: NEAR MISS as Mike Ehresman shoves Matheus Fiorentini up track almost making contact with Bobby Farrell, being in front of the pack that could've be tragic.

    Lap 9: With help from Sean English and J.R. Franklin, John Hooper Sr will take the lead heading through turns one and two. Hooper, in his final season of SRD competition would be a driver I think anybody would like to see win.

    Lap 11: We're starting to stack up again as we have a four-wide race for the lead! Wichelman, Karda, Yost, and Ehresman. Scott Yost will come out with it as Wichelman and Karda get caught up top.

    Lap 12: Green flag stops have started, Althen, Friesen, and Coleman all come down. Althen almost got rear ended coming onto pitlane as he began to slow down before he was fully under the double yellow line.

    Lap 14: About half the field came in that time by, led by Bobby Farrell in the 43. Farrell has had a really nice run so far today.
