Bell Rings In As Truck Series Champion

** PLEASE DESCRIBE THIS IMAGE **

Christopher Bell easily sailed to the championship by 13 seconds over Johnny Sauter.



Matt Minnich crowned winner and champion at Homestead



The Championship four battle was going to be a close race since the picks by all four were pretty similar. All four of them ended up in the top 10 but of course one had to come out ahead. Just like last year, it came down to winning the race to win the championship. Matt Minnich and Jose Rodriguez both had the same picks but Matt had Bell as his segment Truck while Jose had Sauter. Bell finished one spot ahead and won the championship and gave Matt Minnich the win and championship over Jose.

Matt becomes the 2017 Truck series champion which is his first ever title in Lucky Dog Racing. It comes in his 7th season in the Truck series, his previous best finish was 5th place in 2015. This title comes one year after winning the best of the rest title in 2016. Matt ended the season in victory lane giving him three wins for the year, the most of all drivers. Before this season he only had two career wins, both coming at Martinsville.

Matt also was able to win the Truck series money pit and gained $176.00 to go along with his title. He'll also be offered one of the spots to play on the Lucky Dog LROC team. All and all, it was a pretty good year for Matt.

Jose finished 2nd in the race and 2nd to Matt in the standings. Jose won the regular season title but came up one spot short in the playoffs. Still, it was a great year for Jose who won a race and finished with the most top 10s in the league with 11. It's the 2nd straight top 5 for finish in the Truck series for him.

The rest of the top 5 in the race was Leon Baker in 3rd, Joel Blade 4th and Joe Tenpenny 5th.

Matt Minnich's Cup teammate, Brian Blair finished 6th in the race and takes 3rd place in the standings. This is the 5th top 5 finish for Brian who also won the championship back in 2013.

Will Riney finished right behind Brian in 7th and takes 4th in the standings. Will probably wasn't someone that a lot of people picked for a shot at the championship but he surprised a lot of people this year He gets his first ever top 5 finish in the Truck series and 3rd overall in all three series in Lucky Dog Racing.

Thomas Lutz finished 13th in the race and he wins the Truck series rookie of the year after holding off Jakub Smetena. Thomas made the playoffs and finished at the highest rookie in the standings after gaining 2 spots in the final week and moving to 11th place.

So that's it, the 11th season of the Truck series comes to an end. We'll return in Daytona at February. We'll have some new rookies in the field and who knows what surprises we'll see. Enjoy the holidays and once again congratulations to Matt Minnich, the 2017 Truck Series Champion!
