Anderson takes truck feature at Desoto

Not even the largest field of Pro Trucks in the state of Florida this season could slow down Bradenton’s Danny Anderson on Saturday night at Desoto Speedway.
Anderson, who had already won a pair of Q Auto and Injury Attorneys Pro Truck features at Desoto earlier this season, took the lead at the halfway point of Saturday’s 50-lap main event and survived a late-race duel with Chad Chastain through heavy traffic to take his third victory of the season.
Stuart Vandevender led the 26-truck field to the green and would lead a six-truck breakaway of Chad Chastain, Danny Anderson, Blake Haddock, J.R. Garcia and Becca Monopoli around the 3/8-mile oval. The lead pack was working through heavy traffic when the caution flew for a spin on lap 17.
Anderson got by Chastain on the restart and was battling Vandevender for the lead when the caution flew for Cody Martel’s spin on lap 19. Chastain got back around Anderson on lap 22 and quickly closed Vandevender to battle for the lead.
Chastain dove under Vandevender going into the first turn two laps later and grabbed the top spot. Anderson would move to second on the same lap and was pressuring Chastain for the lead when the field stacked up in turn four. Vandevender came to a stop at the top of the track, bringing out the caution.
Anderson passed Chastain for the lead on the restart and appeared on his way to a comfortable victory until he caught a pack of lapped trucks five laps from the finish. That allowed Chastain to close directly on Anderson’s rear bumper, but Anderson fought off a challenge from Chastain with two laps to go and went on to the win.
?I can’t say enough about this truck,? Anderson said in victory lane. ?This truck was really hooked up tonight and it would go anywhere we wanted it to. Hat’s off to Chad Chastain. He’s probably the toughest competitor here.
Chastain, who’s truck suffered a front suspension failure immediately after taking the checkered flag, finished second.
?That was some great racing out there tonight with some really fast trucks,? Chastain said.
Haddock, Garcia and Monopoli rounded out the top five.
