In a race where tempers flared and etiquette lessons were completely disregarded, Harrison Burton emerged victorious at the virtual World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway.
Thursday night’s Bommarito.com 100 was an absolute paint trading affair in which the IceBox Pickup Throwdown Series racers did not hold back, especially as the laps wound down!
While Tyler Hill appeared set for the win, he was the recipient of Anthony Alfredo’s chrome horn in Turn 1 on the final lap. As both drivers regained control of their trucks, Burton snookered his way past Kyle Weatherman, Alfredo, and Hill to capture an exciting win.
