At the end of the first segment of Wednesday’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series MudSummer Classic at Eldora Speedway, it’s Darrell Wallace Jr. in the lead.

The first of two competition cautions was supposed to occur at Lap 60, but did not actually come out until Lap 62. The track has hardened and is very slippery, causing a number of trucks to spin out.

Ty Dillon is running second after putting series veteran Ron Hornaday Jr. into the wall, followed by Jeb Burton, Hornaday and Tyler Reddick.

Sixth through 10th were Kyle Larson, Johnny Sauter, Ken Schrader, Ryan Blaney and Timothy Peters.

Pole sitter Erik Jones spun after holding the early lead and was scored 15th after the first segment. Defending race winner Austin Dillon is scored 14th.

Points leader Matt Crafton is 16th but stayed out and did not pit during the pit-optional stop after the first caution.

There will be two more segments – a 50-lap middle section and a 40-lap final sprint – separated by a second competition caution after the 50-lap mid-section.
