Sheldon Creed admits that the start of his 2021 Truck Series campaign has not lived up to his expectations so far.
6 races into the 2021 NACSAR Truck Series season, the reigning champion Sheldon Creed has had 2 top 5s and 3 top 10s with the best result of 2nd at the Daytona road course. However, the no.2 GMS Racing truck driver is not quite content with how the season is going so far.
“We’ve been pretty quiet honestly,” Creed said. “We’ve been struggling. The only track that I felt we had capable of racing for the win was at the Daytona road course. Everywhere else we’ve been okay.”
“(…) On 1.5-miles it’s pretty close. I’m optimistic for this weekend.”
“I felt we were going to be really good at Bristol dirt. On practice day I didn’t feel we were bad and then we were just really bad in the race. The track was quite different from practice day. That was kind of a bummer.”
Creed admitted that the Richmond race was “the place he struggled at” and said that he would pay more attention to get better on such race tracks.
In the end, the current champion stated that despite a challenging start of the season, “we have speed coming”, which would bring a lot of optimism for the Kansas race.
Sheldon Creed will try to get his first win in 2021 at Kansas from the 8th starting position.
