NASCAR truck racing offers (sorry) "change of pace"

I know what you're thinking, because I have thought the same thing. NASCAR TRUCK RACING would be better with three additions:
1. Dogs in the back.
2. Gun racks.
3. Pulling trailers.
I decided to watch the NASCAR truck race on television last night for a (no pun intended) change of pace from my usual activities.
I'm pleased to report it was thoroughly enjoyable.
Limited fuel capacity in the modified trucks and limits on tire changes mean pit stops occasionally occur while the remainder of the field continues racing. These variables and a few others create a highly competitive format for the truck racers. There seems to be more action than when the big NASCAR stars race -- more surprises.
Last night's race ultimately belonged to RYAN BLANEY. The 18-year-old son of Sprint Cup series driver Dave Blaney managed to keep ahead of his rivals during a series of late-race restarts to win the NEWTON, IOWA event, becoming the youngest winner in what is known for sponsorship reasons as the "Camping World Truck Series."
I thoroughly enjoyed watching, even without the dogs and gun racks.
