Current NASCAR iRacing.com Class A Champion Nick Ottinger made his move on fellow Pro driver Brandon Buchberger with 13 laps to go to take the victory in the C2C Racing Designs 120 at the Milwaukee Mile. Ottinger, who took two right side tires on his final stop at Lap 93 of the 120 lap event, led the final 12 circuits en route to his first career GSRacing.net Truck Series win. Josh Berry was positioned on Ottinger’s back bumper and poised to make a move on the #05 Gale Force Suspension Chevrolet when the final caution of the evening came-out with two laps to go. Berry was thus credited with second place ahead of Brandon Williamson, Thomas Hazard and Chad Coleman.
Eleven yellow flags slowed an action-packed race, which took one hour, 27 minutes to complete. Byron Daley led the most laps in the race (51) but would finish one lap down in the 17th position when an incident with Buchberger took him out of contention after battling for third with eight laps remaining. Thirty-five drivers started the race with 19 of them on track when the checkered flag flew. Ottinger gained the most positions in the race after starting 28th. Patrick Fogel sat on the pole with a 29.986 second lap around the one-mile track but was relegated to a 25th place finish after a wreck sidelined the TCsCustomDiecast.com Chevrolet seven laps shy of the finish. Berry locked himself into the C2C Racing Designs 120 by putting down the quickest lap in the “Go or Go Home” Qualifying session prior to the race. Alex Ciambrone locked himself into the Trading Paints 150 at Texas by winning the Consolation Race.
Rod Merritts Jr finished sixth after a battle with Coleman and would exit Milwaukee as the GSRacing.net Truck Series co-point leader with Hazard. Jon Adams dropped to third in points with an 11th place finish with Buchberger and Talladega winner Brandon Kettelle completing the top five in points with four events of the GSRacing.net Truck Series in the books.
