AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Stewart Friesen held off Brandon Jones in the last two laps at ISM Raceway on Friday night to earn a spot in the four-man fight for the season title next week in the NASCAR Gander Outdoor Truck Series playoffs finale.
Friesen was penalized at the start of the race for crossing the line ahead of pole-sitter Hill. Friesen had to go to the back of the line, but reached the ninth position by the end of the first stage. He led 44 laps.
''It was a great race car,'' Friesen said. ''We were able to pass 'em all, pass 'em all clean. Great race car, great race team. We'll all celebrate tomorrow, and then it's game on.''
