World of Westgate 200 Results 

World of Westgate 200 Notes…

  • Cory Roper and the No. 04 Preferred Industrial Contractors, Inc. Ford F-150 team were relegated to a 25th-place finish after contact with another truck ended the Roper Racing team’s night in Friday’s World of Westgate 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
  • Roper started the race from the 19th position and ran inside the top-20 for most of the event.
  • At lap 119, the No. 51 truck slowed unexpectedly to make an unscheduled visit to pit road. Roper’s truck made contact with the right-rear corner of the No. 51 truck, causing significant damage to the left-front of the No. 04 Preferred Industrial Contractors, Inc. Ford F-150. After assessing the truck, the team determined it had sustained too much damage to continue. As a result, after running as high as 13th in Friday night’s race, Roper was credited with a 25th-place finish.
  • Grant Enfinger scored the win in the World of Westgate 200. Johnny Sauter, Justin Haley, Ben Rhodes and Matt Crafton completed the top five.
