The NASCAR Playoffs are just around the corner and two young Toyota standouts are set to compete for this year’s Truck Series title.
Another Toyota driver, Christopher Bell, also finished second over the weekend in the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. This was Bell’s fifth straight result of second or better. His JGR teammate Brandon Jones also earned his 10th top-10 result of the season.“Really thankful to be able to drive for this Rheem group,” said Bell. “They bring really fast Supras to the race track every single time. They make me look good, that’s for sure.”
Aasbo continues to lead the series point standings. Toyota driver, Ryan Tuerck, finished fourth after being eliminated by his Toyota teammate, Aasbø, in the semifinals.
The Greaves – son CJ on Saturday and father Johnny on Sunday – won both PRO4 Lucas Oil Midwest Short Course League events at Bark River International Raceway over the weekend.
