Race Rundown

Matt DiBenedetto Wins At Talladega, His First Career NASCAR National Series Win: It took a lot of last lap gumption on the Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway high banks and an official “race finish review” afterward, but longtime competitor Matt DiBenedetto earned his first NASCAR national series race victory in Saturday’s Chevy Silverado 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race.(Read More)(10-1-2022)

#25-Matt DiBenedetto won the Chevy Silverado 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Talladega Superspeedway. The win is his first at Talladega, his first of the season, and the first of his career. The race went into overtime, setting up a dramatic finish. On the final lap, the lead swapped hands numerous times before a wreck broke out heading toward the finish line. The caution fell, freezing the field. #25-DiBenedetto was pushed below the yellow line, while #32-Bret Holmes rode the high lane. It appeared Holmes narrowly beat DiBenedetto to the line, but NASCAR reviewed video at the time of caution, declaring DiBenedetto the winner.
#99-Ben Rhodes was scored in second with #32-Holmes in third. #17-Ryan Preece, #98-Christian Eckes, #1-Hailie Deegan, #61-Chase Purdy, #91-Colby Howard, #75-Parker Kligerman, and #16-Tyler Ankrum were the remainder top-10.
Playoff drivers not within the top-10: #18-Chandler Smith, 14th, #38-Zane Smith, 17th, #52-Stewart Friesen, 20th, #4-John Hunter Nemechek, 24th, and #23-Grant Enfinger, 29th.
There was a scary accident early in the race, on lap 19, just before the end of stage 1. #3-Jordan Anderson’s Chevrolet burst into flames and slammed the inside wall. He quickly climbed from the burning machine, but  was taken to the infield care center and later airlifted to Birmingham for treatment for burns.
#18-Chandler Smith won stages 1 and 2.
There were 25 lead changes among 11 drivers and nine cautions for 36 yellow flag laps.
The average speed of the race was: 114.286mph.
