Trucks: Mid-week domination for Peters

That finish meant that the points deadlock between Peters and Dillon at the top of the championship standings coming out of last week's race at Michigan has now been comprehensively broken. Peters leads by 17pts with James Buescher now in second place front of Dillon, who drops down to third.

Nelson Piquet Jr. followed up his maiden series win last weekend with a slightly lacklustre 18th place finish at Bristol, showing that he still has a little to learn on short ovals despite his breakthrough success with wins in Truck, Nationwide and K&N Pro Series East so far in 2012.

It's the first race at Bristol Motor Speedway since the track was changed to grind down the top groove of the progressive banking in order to make the racing closer. How that change will impact this weekend's Nationwide and Sprint Cup events remains to be seen.

Full race results, qualifying and practice times and Truck Series championship standings are all available.
