When the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series returned to Richmond Raceway for the first time in 15 years Thursday night (Sept. 10), Codie Rohrbaugh made the most of it.
Rohrbaugh, who also has experience in the ARCA Menards Series and K&N Pro Series East, drove his No. 9 Chevrolet to a sixth-place finish at the D-oval-shaped circuit, the second-best finish of his career and his first top 10 since Daytona in February.
The West Virginia native quietly ran mid-pack most of the night and was not in the top 10 at the end of either stage, but used strategy to work his way towards the front of the field during the final green-flag run.
As leader and eventual winner Grant Enfinger worked his way through lapped traffic, Rohrbaugh stayed ahead of the No. 98 and finished sixth, the last truck on the lead lap.
It was Rohrbaugh’s third career top 10, his first coming at Martinsville last October. He finished third at Daytona in February, a half-truck-length behind Enfinger and Jordan Anderson as those two battled side-by-side to the checkered flag.
Rohrbaugh and the rest of the Truck Series field will head east to Bristol Motor Speedway to kick off the 2020 playoffs. The postseason opener is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 17 at 7:30 p.m. ET.
