Scott Riggs scored his 3rd last-place finish of his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series career in Friday’s NextEra Energy Resources 250 at the Daytona International Speedway when his #92 FleetHQ.com / BTS Tire & Wheel Distributors Chevrolet fell out with engine problems after 25 of the race’s 100 laps.
The finish was Riggs’ first last-place finish since last year at Kentucky, fifteen races ago.
Riggs qualified 18th for the 36-truck field, turning in a lap of 174.517 mph.
In the race itself, Jennifer Jo Cobb’s #10 Chevrolet seemed to be the race’s first retiree as she started last, lost the draft early, then pulled behind the wall. Riggs, meanwhile, was running in the Top 10, apparently headed for a strong run. However, when Riggs’ engine expired on the backstretch, bringing out the first caution of the night, Cobb returned to the track briefly, putting Riggs in the last spot.
*This was the first Truck Series last-place finish for the #92.
*Riggs’ three last-place finishes in this series have come in consecutive years.
