On any other day, the news would be Parker Kligerman upset win at the NASCAR Truck Series race at Talladega. Ir it might be John Hunter Nemechek’s sixth-place finish that allowed him to continue on.
Instead, it was wrecks. And the end of Talladega it was no different.
As Kligerman passed the finish line, several other trucks wrecked out.
Here’s what one of the trucks looked like:
The same thing happened to Kaz Galara earlier in the race, who wrecked and ruined his playoff chances in the process.[protected-iframe id="277584ed263f70b8ae1fe461720f48fa-117130527-6992927" info="http://player.foxfdm.com/sports/embed-iframe.html?videourl=http://link.theplatform.com/s/BKQ29B/Gm_3tJlNfBXD?mbr=true&assetTypes=Video&feed=Fox%20Sports%20All&iu=/fscom/nascar/video&auto=true&policy=68249219" width="640" height="360" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" allowfullscreen=""]
How unusual is the win? Kligerman, 27, has won two races in the series among his 68 starts. And, he works part-time as an announcer for NBC.
“This is incredible,” Kligerman said in Victory Lane, as reported by Motorsports.com. “I’m out of breath, I guess I’m out of shape racing all these kids. It was just crazy that every move I tried, worked.
“Those last 10 laps, no matter if I went high and separated a pack or was trying get the bump and run, every move just worked. Sometimes, it just goes your way. We did that but it starts with having a fast truck.
“It’s an honor to be racing with this team, it’s one of the oldest in NASCAR, but to win with them is incredible.”
