Despite finishing 31st, Frankie Muniz had “a lot of fun” in his Truck Series debut at Nashville Superspeedway

It was not the best result, but Frankie Muniz leaves Nashville Superspeedway with a smile on his face after the NASCAR Truck Series race on Friday night.

After a disappointing performance in Portland in an attempt to compete in the Xfinity Series, Muniz’s future in NASCAR was in the balance. It seemed the former television star had had enough of his on-track performance and was wondering if it was time to hang up his helmet.

Although Muniz only finished 31st, he told FOX’s Bob Pockrass that Nashville was a step in the right direction for him and his NASCAR career and gave him new momentum.

“I honestly had a blast. I know on paper it might not look like the result we wanted to get, but I just wanted to get as many laps in as possible and get comfortable in the truck,” Muniz explained. “I’ve raced with other people, I’ve been in some battles, and that’s what I needed to do. I’m super thankful to the team and Ford Performance for giving me this opportunity, and I don’t know, I honestly had a good time, and this is the first time this year that I feel like I can get out of a race car and say I had a good time, even though we still had a few little issues here and there, but I don’t know. I’m really excited for the next race, and I can definitely take things from what I’ve learned here in the truck, and how it handles in the air and all that stuff, and apply them.

“You know, when I came here I kind of thought, ‘I don’t really know what to expect,’ but I definitely feel a lot better next time.”

In the future, Frankie Muniz will return to the Truck Series when the campaign moves to Bristol and Kansas, he told Bob Pockrass.

We’ll see if he performs better then, but it’s obvious that he’s using the experience he’s gained to improve every time he gets behind the wheel, and he’s got a lot of people cheering him on.

Christian Eckes leads every lap in dominant win at Nashville Superspeedway

Meanwhile, Christian Eckes led every lap of the Rackley Roofing 200 and took a commanding win at Nashville Superspeedway. Eckes has three victories in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series this season.

Christian Eckes was fantastic all night long. When the 19s team is at full speed, it’s something to behold. When you talk about dominant wins, there’s nothing more dominant than what we saw from Eckes tonight.

Right now it looks like Corey Heim and Eckes are battling for the title. Neither of them can really get the upper hand on the other. However, on Friday Eckes was ahead.

While everyone likes to talk about other drivers when it comes to future Cup Series drives, Eckes is mentioned far too rarely. He is the real deal. This was the first time since 2012 that a driver has led every lap of a national series race.
