Daytona Was a Dream Come True for Underdog Jordan Anderson

O

ne of the most remarkable and inspiring stories of Speedweeks was that of independent NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series driver Jordan Anderson, who finished second to Grant Enfinger in a three-wide, fender-banging conclusion to the opening race of the truck season. On the final lap, it came down to Anderson, Enfinger and Codie Rohrbaugh, with the three drivers crossing the finish line three-wide and Enfinger edging Anderson by only 0.010 seconds. Afterward, Anderson — a 28-year-old Forest Acres, South Carolina native looking to run the full season with sponsorship from K-Seal — might have been the happiest second-place finisher in NASCAR history. “I’m almost speechless for words,” an exuberant Anderson said. “I came here in 2015 and emptied my bank account to try to come down here and run, and to be in the position to even go for a win at Daytona, man … I’m usually not speechless, but God is good. The journey isn’t easy, but it’s worth it.”
