Though the results of tonight’s Pro Truck final weren’t what was expected after watching three rounds of qualifying on Thursday, it wasn’t really a surprise either: Ty Tessman repeated as Pro Truck champion by methodically driving through the field, hanging tough as pit stops cycled through, and keeping it together when it mattered.
