Jordan Anderson grabbed his third straight Top-25 finish in Friday night’s Lucas Oil 150 at Phoenix Raceway to conclude the 2020 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series season. Anderson started the race in 20th position, and would fight hard to remain on the lead lap the first two segments as the race would go green to checkered with no cautions. The third segment would see Anderson keep the truck clean thru two caution flags, and a wild two-lap shootout to finish in the 22nd position.
Stage One Recap:
Anderson started the Lucas Oil 150 in the 20th position after the competition-based performance metrics system once again determined the starting lineup. The system is calculated by the fastest lap and the finishing position from the previous race at Martinsville Speedway, along with ranking in owner points standings.
With the opening stage remaining green the entire distance, Anderson would move up to the 18th position early in the stage, but would fight tire fall off towards the end and hang on to finish in the 25th spot.
Stage Two Recap:
At the stage break, Anderson would come into the pit lane where the over the wall crew would service the Bommarito.com / Capital City Towing No. 3 for fuel, four tires and an adjustment. Anderson would rejoin the field in the 27th position.
Similar to the first stage the second would remain green the entire distance, Anderson would hold his ground finishing the stage in the 27th position.
Under the stage break, Anderson would remain on track and take the “Lucky Dog” wave around to earn a lap back. Anderson would restart the third stage in the 24th position in hopes of an early caution.
Just as Anderson needed the caution would wave on Lap 105, Anderson would come to pit road as the over the wall crew would perform a four tires and fuel stop. Anderson would restart in 21st.
The fourth and final caution would be displayed on Lap-148, with most of the front runners pitting for tires Crew Chief Arthur Haire made the call for Anderson to stay out on track and would restart in 18th.
Similar to last week a green, white checkered two-lap shootout would set up the end to the Lucas Oil 150. The No. 3 Bommarito.com truck of Jordan Anderson would hold his ground, and go on to finish in 22nd position, two laps down.
“It is not very often a short-track truck race does not provide any cautions. Tonight, Stage 1 and Stage 2 went caution free. When that happens, it is only a matter of a few laps before the leaders are in lapped traffic. With no qualifying to set the starting order it really puts a team behind early, and the goal changes to try to be the first truck to get back on the lead lap. Our team fight hard all night to be that first truck each time the caution came out, Said Anderson. “We could have used a few more cautions to help us out in the beginning stages, our truck showed great speed, and to have each of sponsors that partnered with our team throughout the course of the 2020 season displayed on the truck tonight is something special. To have the continued support of everyone around the unknown earlier this year is such a blessing, it is a real honor to have each of these partners be a part of the Jordan Anderson Racing family. I cannot wait to build on what we have accomplished this year, and come back in 2021 even better.”
