CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Ross Chastain, who led for just four laps, got an assist from Grant Enfinger on the final lap to win the North Carolina Education Lottery 200 in double overtime on Friday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway for his fourth career NASCAR Trucks Series victory.
Chastain, Christian Eckes and John Hunter Nemechek were running about even up high, in the middle and down low, respectively, before Eckes fell back as Enfinger came up on the outside and gave Chastain - whose truck appeared somewhat unstable down the stretch - a push into the lead, which he held down the stretch to take the checkered flag.
"I hate it so much for Carson," said Chastain, Hocevar's teammate with Niece Motorsport. "I didn't give him the push he needed to win (on the first attempt at overtime). Man, I'm so proud of Carson Hocevar.
