It was a history-making finish, as Kasey Kahne beat Erik Jones to win Friday’s North Carolina Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

But even though Jones finished second by inches, he managed to slightly close Matt Crafton’s points lead in the Camping World Truck Series standings.

Crafton now leads Jones, who moved up from third to second in the rankings, by 16 points.

Tyler Reddick dropped one position from second to third and trails Crafton by 18 points. Johnny Sauter remains in fourth, 35 points back, while John Wes Townley climbed into the top five and now sits in fifth place, 57 points behind Crafton.

Here’s the unofficial driver standings after Friday’s race:
