As the laps wind down for the Bucked Up 200 in Las Vegas, the number of wrecks and the intensity continues to climb.
Another hard hit for a Camping World Truck Series driver, this time for GMS Racing’s Tyler Ankrum.
Coming off turn two, Jordan Anderson and Brett Moffitt bumped doors, which sent Anderson down into Ankrum.

The 20-year-old driver met the inside retaining wall head-on, while a spinning Anderson came to rest a few feet away. Driver No. 3 is one of the ten Truck Series drivers adorning the Camping World colors after Marcus Lemonis went on Twitter, to help fund a number of drivers for this weekend’s race.
Ankrum’s No. 26 will DNF, his second of the season in just three races.
John Hunter Nemechek would go on to win the Bucked Up 200, his first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series win, his first national touring series win since 2018.
