Congratulations, Justin Lofton

Is it just me or do you all find it ironic that Justin Lofton, driver of the No. 6 Chevrolet for Eddie Sharp Racing won the Camping World Truck Series North Carolina Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Friday night?  I mean, it was like fate:  Justin's sponsor is College Complete and the name of the race was the North Carolina Education Lottery 200.  Am I the only one that finds that cool?

Lofton, who started second, fell back to seventh within three laps and that's what it took for him to learn what to do to make the truck better for the rest of the race.  Leading for a total of forty-four laps, including the last ten, he crossed the Start/Finish Line 0.261 seconds before Brad Keselowski. 

This win at Charlotte Motor Speedway was the first one in the Camping World Truck Series for both Lofton and Eddie Sharp Racing; in his fifty-five starts, Lofton's best finish was third.  In addition to the win, Lofton took over first place in the Camping World Truck Series point standings, leading by one point over Timothy Peters. 

I just wanted to say a massive congratulations to Justin Lofton, Eddie Sharp Racing, College Complete, and the whole No. 6 team on their first win - you all put an immense amount of dedication and work into the team!
