Corey Heim made headlines as he drove the No. 11 TRICON Garage Toyota, positioning himself as one of the top contenders for the Truck Series title last Friday.
The race took a dramatic turn when Heim cleanly overtook Carson Hocevar, only to have Hocevar retaliate and make contact, causing Heim to spin out. This turn of events shook up the championship battle, with Grant Enfinger and Ben Rhodes emerging as the new frontrunners while Heim struggled to recover.
With just three laps remaining, Heim and Hocevar collided once again, resulting in a chaotic sequence of events that forced the race into overtime.
In the midst of the chaos, Ben Rhodes seized the opportunity to snatch the title from Enfinger, as the race endured multiple accidents and restarts, extending nearly 30 laps past the scheduled distance.
In the aftermath, Heim refuted claims that he intentionally caused the wrecks. However, NASCAR’s review of radio transmissions resulted in a $12,500 fine and the loss of 25 driver points for Heim, relegating him to fourth place in the final standings.
