The NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series heads to Texas Motor Speedway for some Sunday afternoon action in the Lone Star State.

The Gander Trucks will be the first of two races on Sunday, opening for the Cup Series later in the afternoon.

Last weekend, the series took on Kansas Speedway, where Brett Moffitt was victorious for the first time this season and punched his ticket to the Championship 4 in Phoenix.

Moffitt’s GMS Racing teammate and fellow Playoff driver Sheldon Creed finished in second and Austin Hill, another Playoff driver, finished in third. Grant Enfinger finished fourth and Chandler Smith rounded out the top five.

Creed swept both stages and led 61 laps, but Moffitt was able to hold on for the most important ones at the end.

The race had four cautions for 24 laps and 13 lead changes among nine different drivers.

This weekend, the 400 will be at 12 p.m. ET on FS1, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio and is one of two chances left for the Playoff drivers to secure their place in the Championship 4. With only three spaces left, more and more is at stake.

Kyle Busch won the Gander Trucks race earlier this season at Texas. Christian Eckes, who was eliminated in the first round of the Playoffs, finished second and Playoff driver Matt Crafton finished third, the highest-finishing driver still fighting for the championship.

The race at Texas in July had five cautions for 26 laps and 15 lead changes. The Margin of Victory was .777 seconds.

Crafton is the only current Playoff driver with a previous win at the track. Crafton and his ThorSport Racing teammate and veteran Johnny Sauter are the only two active drivers with any win at the track.

Sunday’s race will be 220.5 miles and 147 laps. Stage 1 will end on Lap 35 and Stage 2 will end on Lap 70.

Creed will start on the pole on Sunday with Moffitt joining him on the front row. Hill, Enfinger, Chandler Smith, Zane Smith, Crafton, Rhodes, Ankrum and Eckes will start in the top 10.
