Defending race winner Matt Crafton probably not be going back-to-back at Michigan, after being involved in a multi-truck melay on lap 51.

The accident began when Stewart Friesen and Christian Eckes made contact, sending the Halmar Friesen Racing Toyota Tundra into the outside wall hard, while collecting Matt Crafton, as well as Niece Motorsports teammates Ty Majeski and Ryan Truex.

Stewart Friesen would be out of the event, finishing 39th-place, while Matt Crafton, Ty Majeski and Ryan Truex were able to make repairs to their respective trucks and continue racing.
