#38-Zane Smith won the Lucas Oil 150 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Phoenix Raceway and with it, the 2022 championship. Smith got the lead following an overtime restart and held off championship challengers #99-Ben Rhodes and #18-Chandler Smith to narrowly claim the title.
The win is his first at Phoenix, fourth of the season, and the seventh of his career.
#38-Smith dominated the race, leading 77 of the 154 laps and sweeping the opening stages. A pitstop under yellow with 14 laps remaining saw Smith lose eight spots on pitroad. Meanwhile, #99-Rhodes took two tires and gained track position. Another yellow flag on lap 148 of the scheduled 150 allowed #38-Smith another shot. #99-Rhodes led at the time, but teammate, #66-Ty Majeski spun while attempting a move on #38-Smith. The spin brought out the yellow and eliminated Majeski’s title hopes.
The field saw the overtime restart with #99-Rhodes leading over #18-Smith and #38-Smith. The three battled to the checkered flag with #38-Smith beating #99-Rhodes to the line by just .236-seconds.
#4-John Hunter Nemechek, #52-Stewart Friesen, #23-Grant Enfinger, #51-Corey Heim, #15-Tanner Gray, #30-Kaden Honeycutt, and #42-Carson Hocevar closed out the top-10.
There were 15 lead changes among seven drivers and seven cautions for 41 yellow flag laps. The average speed of the race was: 89.003mph.
