Trucks: Nelson Piquet Jr. wins at Vegas

"Coming off pit road, I really don't know what happened," admitted the rookie, frustrated at having sequandered the race-winning opportunity of "an awesome truck tonight" as he described the #3's handling at Vegas. "I'm proud of my team because we battled back. It hurts a little bit, but we still have the points lead."

Full race results, plus qualifying and practice speeds and full Truck Series championship standings are available.
