NASCAR Truck Series Champion drives the E-Z Line Toyota to victory lane in the Pro Late Model division
BRISTOL, Tenn. (June 2, 2019) –NASCAR Truck Series Champion Mike Skinner won the Short Track U.S. Nationals at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway on Saturday night. In a dramatic drive in the No. 5 E-Z Line Toyota, Skinner had to recover from a lap three accident to race through the field and visit victory lane in the Pro Late Model division. It was Skinner’s first win at the half-mile since his 2005 NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series victory.
“Winning at Bristol is amazing,” said Skinner. “The coolest part about the win tonight is overcoming adversity. We had an uphill battle when we sustained damage from debris on lap three, but the boys did an amazing job fixing the car and allowing us to come from the back of the pack twice to race through the field. Bristol is a special place—it will always be one of my favorite tracks. To be able to come here at 62-years-old and win with my two sons, Jamie and Dustin, and our devoted crew members, Richie Penn and Clint Jack, is something I’ll never forget. I’d also like to give a big thank you to one of my best friends Howard Palmer of E-Z Line who made sure that I could fulfill my bucket list to return to victory lane at one of my favorite race tracks.”
