AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Erik Jones became the youngest winner in Truck Series history with his first career NASCAR national victory, and Matt Crafton finished fifth to make the season championship a formality next week.
Crafton needs only to start in the season finale at Homestead to seal his first series title after eliminating all other contenders Friday night.
Jones won at 17 years, 4 months to break the record set this year by Chase Elliott, who was five months older when he won in Bowmanville, Ontario.
Jones got his win in his fifth start for Kyle Busch Motorsports. He got a shot to drive the Toyota when he caught Busch's eye by beating him in the Snowball Derby last December.
Ross Chastain finished second driving for Brad Keselowski. Jones passed Chastain with nine laps remaining.
