Neither NASCAR, nor Mother Nature could keep Ryan Blaney from victory lane Wednesday night at Bristol Motor Speedway.  Blaney passed Matt Crafton on a green white checkered flag finish to drive to victory in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series UNOH 200.

Blaney led the first 37 laps and looked to be the truck to beat but on a restart NASCAR ruled that Blaney jumped the start and sent him to the back of the field and he went one lap down.  Cole Custer took the lead shortly after and was in control, leading a race high111 laps, but on lap 161 of 200, Spencer Gallagher spun and Custer was unable to avoid him. Crafton took the lead but during the caution rain fell and the race was red flagged.

After a forty-five minute delay the racing resumed with 25 laps to go. John Hunter Nemechek fought his way to second and was working his way towards Crafton, but with seven laps to go, Blaney was suddenly back in second and looking for the lead. His progress was halted with six laps to go when Ty Dillon spun bringing out the races final caution and setting up the sixth green-white-checkered flag finish for the Truck Series at Bristol.
