Race Rundown

Brett Moffitt gets first win of the season in Playoff race at Kansas: After four runner-up finishes on the season, former NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Series champion Brett Moffitt earned his first victory of 2020 in the Clean Harbors 200 at Kansas Speedway Saturday evening. And while that first win came 20 races into the season, it was particularly impactful – officially landing Moffitt in the Championship 4 that will compete for the series title Nov. 6 in Phoenix. Moffitt, 28, held off his GMS Racing Chevrolet teammate Sheldon Creed by a mere .111-seconds for the overtime victory. The race went into extra laps just after Moffitt took the lead from another teammate, and fellow Playoff driver Zane Smith on Lap 132 of the scheduled 134-lap race. The two made contact while racing side-by-side and Smith spun out, recovering to finish 11th with seven laps of overtime.[Read More](10-17-2020)
