The NASCAR season has finally come to its end with three new champions on top of the sport. We will go through all three series, and shed light on our new champions.
Camping World Truck Series
Brett Moffitt won the championship in style. Moffitt was the underdog going into homestead, but faced the challenge head on. Moffitt was very impressive all race long and led a majority of the race. In total he led 59 of the 134 laps, which includes the final 28 laps when he ran away from the field. Moffitt won by two seconds and the next closest championship contender was in third place. Brett Moffitt is your new champion in the Camping World Truck Series.
Tyler Reddick raced his way to a victory, and to a championship. This champion is a special one, because the young kid is a rookie. Tyler Reddick was the underdog coming into the race, but he didn’t let the expectation keep him from taking home the hardware. Cole Custer had the best car early on but some questionable management by his crew chief gave the upper hand to Tyler Reddick and he took full advantage of the opportunity. Tyler Reddick raced a perfect race and he did it by running the high line about a foot from the wall, and Dale Earhart Jr himself said, “it was a gutsy decision, but it payed off.”
Reddick now has his name in the history of champions, and we will see where his career goes from here.
Monster Energy Cup Series
Joey Logano was also an underdog, but it is no surprise he was the one to take home the championship. Logano has been one of the best racers in recent memory, but he never could seem to chase down the championship. Sunday he was the best one on the track when it mattered most. Kevin Harvick led early on and Martin Truex Jr was near the front the entire race, but Joey Logano and his team continued to battle and his persistence took him to victory lane.
Joey Logano will remember this for a long time, and now he finally has the championship he has wanted so desperately. He will enjoy this as long as he can, but make no mistake, Joey Logano already has his sights set on another chance next season.
