Default Accelerator stuck, went into neutral then hit 6000 rpm

Hey Everyone

Today my accelerator got stuck, so I popped it in neutral and I continued to Rev until 6000 then went down. This all lasted a couple seconds. Any damage I should be worried about with the engine?

I'm glad I just changed the oil. I think what caused the issue was the rubber mat but still not sure.

If it has not shown any difference in the way it runs so far, you are likely fine. It is not uncommon for the engines to rev to 5k or more when set up for 'track' use.
A better solution, or one more thing to do, would be to turn the ignition key to OFF.

In most cases, the brakes are stronger than the engine. You should be able to brake the truck to a stop, though the engine might try to keep revving.
I would not spend a lot of time worrying about it. Won't help, and you may not have any follow up problems at all.

The engine computer cuts fuel to the injectors at a hair above 6,000 rpms to prevent engine damage. You're fine.
