Brandon Jones kicked off NASCAR's tripleheader on Sunday by passing Sheldon Creed on the final lap to win the Gander RV Outdoors Truck Series race at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pa.

Creed captured the lead on the penultimate lap off a restart after squeezing between Jones and Austin Hill. Jones and Creed battled on the final lap and entered the Tunnel Turn before the 23-year-old Jones pulled out his first series win.

The Pocono Organics 150 initially was scheduled for Saturday before being pushed back a day due to rain.

The 60-lap race featured a track record-tying nine cautions that set up the final two-lap shootout.

The Pocono Green 225 NASCAR Xfinity Series race will follow at 12:30 p.m. ET Sunday, with the Pocono 350 NASCAR Cup Series race scheduled to start at 4 p.m.

Hill secured his seventh consecutive top-10 result after finishing in second place, 0.864 seconds behind Jones.

Creed finished third to record his first top-10 finish in the past three races. Todd Gilliland and Ben Rhodes wrapped up the top five.

Matt Crafton finished in last place after he was involved in Codie Rohrbaugh's crash on the first corner of the first lap. Rohrbaugh finished 39th.
