Brett Moffitt dominated Sunday’s Chevrolet Silverado 250 at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, leading 45 of the race’s 65 total laps.

The No. 24 GMS Racing Chevrolet picked up his second consecutive NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series victory, and continues to lead the Playoff standings.

CTMP has a reputation of providing close battles for the race win. However, Mofitt went against this and opened up a sizeable gap.

At the finish, he was five seconds clear of Kyle Busch Motorsports’ Alex Tagliani in second place, who earned his best-career Truck Series finish.

The 45-year-old NASCAR Pinty’s Series regular started the race from fourth on the grid but quickly fell back in the opening stage.

After a change in strategy, Tagliani was able to make his way back to the front of the pack as the laps wound down.

Rounding out the top three was ThorSport Racing’s Ben Rhodes. During the race’s third stage, Rhodes challenged Tagliani for second, but was unable to get past.

The race saw just one full-course yellow, after Dan Corcoran spun and put his No. 33 into the wall.

Moffitt Through to Round Two

Only one race remains in the first round of the Truck Series Playoffs. Courtesy of his race win, Brett Moffitt is the only driver currently guaranteed a spot in Round Two.

The next round in Las Vegas will see the seven remaining playoff drivers compete for  five spots up.
