Tyler Ankrum took control of the race when leader Brett Moffitt ran out of fuel with less than two laps to go to win his first NASCAR Trucks Series race at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, Kentucky on Thursday night.

The race opened NASCAR Weekend at the race track.

By winning the Buckle Up In Your Truck 225 race on the NASCAR Gander Outdoor Series schedule, Ankrum is the first driver born in 2000 or later to win a NASCAR national series race. His birthdate is March 6, 2001.

Ankrum originally wanted to be a golfer after his father, who also was involved in racing.

The 18-year-old from San Bernardino, California, finished just 7.373 seconds ahead of Stewart Friesen on the 1.5-mile Super Speedway, tri-oval to gain a spot in the upcoming eight-man series playoffs.

Ankrum, had a race-high 40 laps led in his #17 Toyota Truck game DGR Crosley Racing its first team win.
