Sport: Grant Enfinger powers to dramatic Truck Series victory at IRP

Braves outfielder Adam Duvall to have season-ending wrist surgery

  Braves outfielder Adam Duvall to have season-ending wrist surgery Duvall, 33, exited in the third inning of a Saturday game against the Los Angeles Angels with wrist soreness. On Sunday morning, the Braves placed Duvall on the 10-day injured list with what the team called a sprained wrist. The injury leaves the Braves thin in the outfield even after the team got Eddie Rosario back from an eye injury earlier in July. Rosario is batting .132 this season and Atlanta moved Guillermo Heredia and Michael Harris II into the starting lineup with Ronald Acuña Jr. on Sunday.

With nine laps remaining, an on-track spin left the most important decision of the night up to the No. 23 ThorSport Racing crew chief Jeff Hensley with nine laps remaining — and pitting for four fresh Goodyear tires was the call.

That late caution mixed up the field with a majority of the leaders pitting. John Hunter Nemechek rolled the dice and decided to stay out, leading the field on the restart with three laps remaining. After starting on the outside of the front row, Taylor Gray drove into the lead before Nemechek made contact with his left-rear quarter panel, spinning him in front of the field and triggering NASCAR Overtime.

Pirates CF Bryan Reynolds expects to return from IL Monday or Tuesday against Cubs

  Pirates CF Bryan Reynolds expects to return from IL Monday or Tuesday against Cubs While the Pirates find themselves 16 games under .500 after the All-Star break, they may soon get a boost with the return of starting centerfielder Bryan Reynolds. The 27-year-old has been on the injured list since July 11 with a right oblique strain. On Sunday, Reynolds told Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Gazette that he plans to return during the Pirates' upcoming series against the Chicago Cubs, either on Monday or Tuesday. Bryan Reynolds told me he expects to return for the Cubs series. “That’s the goal,” Reynolds said. Side had been bothering him for a few series. Tried to play through it.

Starting second on the inside row, Enfinger squeezed past Zane Smith after Smith battled with Nemechek for the lead. Never looking back, Enfinger raced off into the night to secure his first Truck Series victory since 2020. He led 13 laps.

Behind him, defending champion Ben Rhodes rallied for a runner-up finish, followed by Zane Smith, Stewart Friesen and Corey Heim. Zane Smith suffered heavy damage earlier in the race after contact with Chandler Smith, but bounced back with tremendous late-race strategy. Chandler Smith finished 18th after finishing in the top 10 in both stages.

Tyler Ankrum, Layne Riggs, Ty Majeski, Matt Crafton and Nemechek rounded out the top 10. Majeski led the second-most laps of the field with 71. Nemechek led with 76.

The dramatic win secures Enfinger’s place in the Round of 8.

The penultimate race in the Round of 10 is Saturday, August 13 at Richmond Raceway (8 p.m. ET, FS1, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio). Nemechek won at Richmond in 2021.
