Justin Lofton and the No. 6 Weekend Warriors Productions / Lofton Cattle Chevrolet team brought home a top-10 finish in the Kentucky 201 on Friday night. The team worked to fine-tune the handling of their Chevrolet most of the day, but as the laps wound down at the 1.5-mile Kentucky Speedway, the Weekend Warriors Productions/Lofton Cattle crew had their truck handling just as they wanted and had planned the pit strategy needed for a seventh-place finish.

With a prediction for 100% chance of rain, teams throughout the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) garage began working on developing their strategy for the Kentucky 201. Lofton rolled off 14th at Kentucky Speedway, and was one of the first competitors to come down pit road. He brought the Weekend Warriors Productions/Lofton Cattle Chevrolet in for fuel and a chassis adjustment during the lap 16 caution, and made a lone stop again during the lap 35 caution for four tires and fuel. The strategy allowed Lofton to pick up maximum track position as his competitors continued to pit just one caution period after him, and by the lap 51 restart, Lofton was scored in the third position.

With the No. 6 Weekend Warriors Productions/Lofton Cattle Chevrolet pushing the nose a little, Lofton continued to log laps around the 1.5-mile Kentucky Speedway avoiding all the accidents in a caution-filled event. He maintained his position inside the top 10 until returning to pit road during the lap 81 caution when he came in for four tires and a chassis adjustment moving him just outside the top 10.

During the closing laps of the Kentucky 201, crew chief Dan Bormann called Lofton down pit road one last time during the lap 108 caution for right side tires. Lofton restarted the race back in the 14th position, but with newer tires the championship contender was able to pick up seven positions during the final 25 laps to cross the finish line in the seventh position.

“The Weekend Warriors Productions/Lofton Cattle Chevrolet team had a good run at Kentucky,” commented Lofton. “This is a critical time in our run for the championship, and we’re all focused 100% on the task at hand. We hoped to gain more points going into Las Vegas, but we are where we are. I can assure you that in the remaining six races we will be doing everything that we can to be competitive for the win.”

The NCWTS will take on Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Friday, September 29th. Live coverage of the Smith’s 350 will begin at 8:00 p.m. ET on SPEED, MRN Radio and Sirius XM NASCAR Radio, channel 90.
