DARLINGTON, S.C. – John Hunter Nemechek led the final 27 laps to score his first Camping World Truck Series win of the season Friday night at Darlington Raceway.

Nemechek, who led a race-high 69 of 149 laps, held off Carson Hocevar on an overtime restart. Hocevear said his truck suffered electrical issues after the restart, and could not challenge Nemechek on the final lap. Hocevear, who seeks his first career series win, finished second for the second race in a row. He did win the second stage Friday.

Grant Enfinger finished third and was followed by Ty Majeski and Matt Crafton. NASCAR on NBC analyst Parker Kligerman finished sixth after winning the opening stage. Ryan Preece placed seventh.
