FORT WORTH — Jesse Little finished seventh in the JAG Metals 350, but he wanted more.
The 21-year-old driver picked up his fifth top-10 finish in eight starts this season Friday in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Texas Motor Speedway, running as high as second-place in his JJL Motorsports No. 97 Trucks.
“I’m glad to be disappointed with a strong, top-10 finish,” Little said. “It shows were determined and tenacious enough to try to grab one of these checkered flags.”
It was a night of learning for Little, he said, in terms of running in traffic and aerodynamics.
“I did personally, stuff I’ll be able to take to more mile-and-a-half’s,” Little said.
Little said his final Truck series start of the year will be in two weeks at Homestead-Miami Speedway, a 1.5-mile track where Little finished 14th and 18th respectively in 2015 and 2016.
