At around the eight-minute mark of NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series practice, Rookie of the Year contender Rajah Caruth had a nervous moment. Caruth got a bit loose while running the high lane in Turns 3 and 4, and went for a spin.
Here is a video of Caruth’s spin:

Fortunately, Caruth was able to keep his truck off of the wall, and avoided any damage. Toni Breidinger, who is making her NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series debut this weekend in the No. 1 Victoria’s Secret-sponsored TRICON Garage entry, narrowly avoided the spinning Caruth as well.
Caruth ended the practice session seventh on the speed charts. If he can keep the truck under him in Saturday’s race, who knows, we could see a career-best finish for the young racer.
