Justin Haley became the 102nd driver in the history of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Saturday night to win a race in the series.
Haley won the Villa Lighting Delivers the Eaton 200 at Gateway, leading the final seven laps. His first victory came in his 37th series start.
“No, and it’s probably not going to,” Haley said of the victory sinking in. “…I’ve dreamt of this my whole life.”
Todd Gilliland finished second and points leader Johnny Sauter finished third.
The last first-time winner in the series was Chase Briscoe at Homestead-Miami Speedway in November of 2017.
The next stop for the series is next Friday night at Chicagoland Speedway for the Overton’s 225.
