Rhodes Edges Anderson For Daytona Truck Victory

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Friday night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season opener at Daytona Int’l Speedway was nearly an exact repeat of the finish from one year ago. As the field crashed behind them, Rhodes took the checkered flag in front by a nose for his first win at Daytona, with Anderson sneaking through all the chaos on the bottom to finish second once again. It marked Rhodes’ fourth career Truck Series win and also gave ThorSport a win in the team’s first race since moving back to Toyota from Ford during the offseason. “I don’t even know,” answered Rhodes after being asked how he won the race. “We came back to Toyota and we won in our first race with them back with ThorSport,” Rhodes added. At that point, as Creed lost momentum, Roper slid down to the bottom in front of Rhodes and received a big push from Rhodes exiting turn two that got him roughly two truck lengths clear of the field.
