Rookie Chase Briscoe was named Monday as the 2017 National Motorsports Press Association's Most Popular Driver in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
The recognition comes 10 days after Briscoe, 22, scored his first career victory in the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The Indiana native finished sixth in the series standings and claimed four pole positions on the way to Sunoco Rookie of the Year honors.
Briscoe was featured alongside Brad Keselowski Racing teammate Austin Cindric in an irreverent social media campaign to drum up balloting support. He becomes the third BKR driver to win the award in the last four years, following Tyler Reddick (2016) and Ryan Blaney (2014).
