“Man, this is unbelievable. I’ve been waiting for an opportunity like this,” Majeski said during the post-race celebrations. post-race. “We came out guns blazing for this race and brought our best truck.”

It was excellent timing for the driver of a ThorSport Toyota Tundra.  He is now qualified for the final four at Phoenix Raceway in November where he will run for the truck championship. 

Smith won the first two stages and pulled off the win to dominate the event, making him an early favorite for winning the championship for 2022. 

Following Majeski, Zane Smith, and Parker Klingerman, Grant Enfinger  three-time truck series champion Matt Crafton,  rounded up the top 5.
