Start: 17th
Finish: 4th

Notes:

– Sheldon Creed went off course and into the tire barrier during final practice on Saturday and the team was forced to pull out their backup Chevy Silverado. As a result, Creed started at the rear of the field for Sunday’s Chevrolet Silverado 250 despite a 17th-place qualifying effort.

– The No. 2 team short pitted with six laps to go in stage one in an effort to get off sequence and gain track position Creed ultimately battled his way into the top five and finished fourth.

– This is Creed’s third top-five finish of the season and his fourth consecutive top-10 finish.

Quote:

“There was a lot of really good racing through the field. We had some fast trucks behind us, the 16 and 45 were battling back there. This is a good finish for how our weekend started. I wrecked the primary in second practice and that forced us to put the backup together last night. We started in the back and I just tried to learn as much as I could. It’s tough here to fight and finish in fourth place. I battled my teammate pretty good there at the end which was fun. I want to thank my guys, Chevy, GMS and everyone that helps me out. Can’t wait to come back to Canada next year.”
