Slippery When Wet: Heim, Hocevar and the Unfortunate Spin.

Phoenix Raceway: The Heim-Hocevar Collision Fallout.

Corey Heim held his championship steady at the Craftsman Truck Series race at Phoenix Raceway before a twist of fate interceded. With 30 laps remaining, Carson Hocevar’s reputation slid when he spun Heim out of the championship trajectory. Authors report that Heim robustly climbed from the pole position to finish amongst the top two, notching his eighth victory of the season.

Heim’s late-stage strategy did not mirror that of competitor Hocevar, the only Championship 4 driver to pit, securing him an initial advantageous position. Nevertheless, Heim was not deterred and diligently raced ahead, momentarily holding fifth position before an unfortunate encounter with Hocevar resulted in a spin, collecting Stewart Friesen in its wake.

Immediately expressing remorse, Hocevar owned up to his driving error, expressing more concern for TriCon’s lost championship than for repercussions to his reputation. After the calamity, Heim pitted for fresh tires, managing to claw his way back up to the sixth position before another setback befalls him. In the race’s frantic finish, Hocevar spun yet again, ending the No. 42’s participation and damaging the No. 11.

Past encounters between the two drivers have hinted at the season’s dramatic culmination, Heim was candid about his expectation of such an event. Ben Rhodes celebrated becoming a two-time series championship, showing resilience during the final laps’ intense drama.
