Todd Gilliland Sweeps Stage 1 and 2 at Gateway, Leads Every Lap in Dominating Performance in Stage 2

Todd Gilliland did not have a Stage Win in 2020 heading into Sunday’s NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series CarShield 200 at Gateway, but that didn’t stop the driver of the No. 38 Front Row Motorsports Ford F-150 from sweeping Stages 1 and 2 on Sunday.

Gilliland snuck up and passed Zane Smith with 10 laps left in Stage 1, but in Stage 2, Gilliland put on a clinic of domination as he led all 55 laps in Stage 2.

Christian Eckes, who is still in search of his first Truck Series win, finished second in Stage 2.

Zane Smith, who has won two of the last three races in the Series finished third.

17-year old Sam Mayer, who ran the ARCA race at Gateway on Saturday, is in fourth and he’s been one of the fastest trucks in the race in GMS Racing’s No. 24 truck.

Sheldon Creed capped off the top-five finishers.

Brett Moffitt, Tyler Ankrum, Ben Rhodes, Raphael Lessard and Stewart Friesen rounded out the top-10 finishers in Stage 2.
