FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- Sheldon Creed got a little bump from a friend who was already in the final four for the NASCAR Truck Series.

Now Creed has a spot alongside teammate Brett Moffitt after winning in Texas on Sunday.

Creed qualified for the championship round by taking the two-lap overtime finish created when playoff contender Ben Rhodes clipped noncontending Christian Eckes with both in the top five with two laps to go, leaving several drivers angry.

With Creed running alongside Austin Hill on the backstretch on the first lap of the restart, Moffitt moved down the track to give Creed the nudge he needed to go in front.

"That made my life a little easier when they did that," Creed said. "Let the race come to you , drive what you have and you'll always end up better.

A good day and executed well."
