Starting Position & Results: P28 | P27 | P27 | P24


Stage 1

  • With the field virtually staying in place, Holmes found himself shuffling between P20 and P28 throughout the first stage. The race saw the first of eleven cautions when Thad Moffit, driver of the No.46 truck, spun out on turn 3.


Stage 2

  • Holmes found himself right outside the top 20 throughout the stage but had trouble advancing further due to the excess of cautions. Using the cautions to their advantage, Mike Shiplett and the crew brought Holmes into the pit and worked to get the truck's handling down for the final stretch of the race.

Final Stage

  • With four fresh tires and the truck adjusted, Holmes climbed the field into P15 early in the stage before exiting for, what the team planned to be, the final pit stop of the race.

  • Shortly after exiting pit road, Kaden Honeycutt of the No.45 truck, slammed into the bumper of Bret Holmes, sending the Best Value Carries No.32 truck spinning.
