Trucks: Sauter wins in Texas

He'd been leading up until the final caution of the race, but some jostling which started with Cale Gale spinning his tyres forcing Piquet to check up ended with Buescher getting hit from behind by Matt Crafton which bumped him into the back of Piquet's truck during the second restart on lap 70, leaving Buescher complaining of some vibration for the rest of the race.

"It was bumper cars from there and got too much damage," said Buescher. "The truck got really tight and couldn't turn and couldn't run the bottom.

"I thought we were controlling our own destiny tonight," he sighed. "We were in some close quarters racing at times and led some laps and had a fast track, so you can control your own destiny but you can't control what everybody else is doing."

"It could have been worse," he pointed out. "We didn't want to put ourselves in any bad spots but we got put in bad spots and we came out with the lead [in the championship], so I don't think you can blame that kind of stuff for what happened. We had a bunch of damage and never caught a caution the rest of the night to fix it, and never caught a break."

Parker Kligerman pulls up to just 2pts off third-placed Timothy Peters with just two more races remaining in the season.

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