Trucks - Homestead - Race results

Johnny Sauter won a rain-shortened Ford 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Friday night, but Austin Dillon clinched his first title.
Johnny Sauter did everything possible to wrest the 2011 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series on Friday night by winning the race, but in the end Austin Dillon fought back to finish in tenth place despite tyre and engine problems, which was enough for him to clinch the championship by just six points over Sauter.

Dillon becomes the youngest Truck Series champion at 21, ahead of his move to full-time Nationwide Series competition in 2012. He's the first driver in the series to follow his rookie year with a championship win.

In a race shortened by 15 laps because of rain, Denny Hamlin came second ahead of the two Kevin Harvick, Inc. trucks, with Harvick himself in third ahead of Nelson Piquet Jr. in fourth. Piquet announced he would be moving to Turner Motorsports in 2012 following the closure of KHI after this weekend.
