(Mooresville, N.C., November 14, 2014–) Mason Mitchell’s goal in the Ford EcoBoost 200 at the Homestead-Miami Speedway was simple, run all of the laps and keep his fenders clean. The 2014 ARCA Racing Series champion who made his Camping World Truck Series debut Friday night exceeded all of his expectations by finishing an impressive 16th.

“I’m very happy with how everything went this weekend” Mitchell said after the finish of the Ford EcoBoost 200. “I learned a lot every single lap, we finished the race in one piece which was my main objective. I felt that we were a tenth to twelfth place truck. It was a learning experience and I hope to build from this. I can’t thank Gary Yeoman’s Ford, and the Wild Life Foundation of Florida for making this possible.”

Mitchell qualified his No. 48 Mason Mitchell Motorsports F-150 in the 18th position for the 134 lap event. When the green flag waved on the final NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event for the 2014 season the rookie driver quickly moved into the top 15. Mitchell continued to battle a loose truck and made his first pit-stop under caution at lap 25.

Mitchell continued to battle in the top-15 and movde into the 14th position passing three drivers on lap 43. A late race caution with 30 laps remaining allowed Mitchell to make one final pit-stop and make adjustments.

In the closing laps the West Des Moines native battled with Jeb Burton and Daniel Hemric for the 14th position before crossing the finish line in the 16th position.
