2013 Kansas NASCAR: Truck results

Matt Crafton won the SFP 250 Truck race at Kansas Speedway on Saturday, in a race that saw half the field eliminated over the course of 11 cautions.
Matt Crafton claimed victory in Saturday afternoon's NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race by 0.168s over Joey Coulter, his third win in 298 series starts. It was Crafton's first win of 2013 and his first Truck win at Kansas.

Heading into the SFP 250, James Buescher had been the definite favourite having dominated both practice sessions before clinching his fourth pole in 98 Truck Series starts with a lap of 30.285s (178.306 mph) on the 1.5-mile Kansas Speedway. Crafton meanwhile started from sixth place.

Beuscher led for 49 of the first 61 laps, with Bryan Silas, Miguel Paludo and Jeb Burton having brief stints in front around cautions, pit stops and restarts. Crafton's own first appearance at the front came between lap 36 and 39 after Buescher had become involved in an accident with Paludo that put the #32 out of the race. It was already the fourth caution of after race after Kyle Busch had spin on lap 14, Spencer Gallagher on lap 23 and John Wes Townley had wrecked in turn 4 on lap 28.

Buescher's grip on the lead finally faltered with an 11-lap stint at the front for Kyle Busch, but Busch was eliminated from further contention by a spinning German Quiroga on lap 90. Other potential winners also started to fall by the way side: Joey Logano and Ryan Sieg both exited with engine problems mid-race and then a serious accident on lap 120 forced a 13 minute red flag stoppage while the debris was cleared up, after Brennan Newberry got loose and knocked Todd Bodine into the wall, whose truck then slid down the track into a second hard impact with Bryan Silas that destroyed the front of the #13 and knocked it back into the wall all over again.

After the race resumed there were two final cautions during the remaining 42 laps - Justin Jennings spun on lap 132 and Jeb Burton crashed on lap 139 - but it wasn't until just before this final caution that Crafton resurfaced at the front at the culmination of a record 18 lead changes. Once ahead, Crafton held onto it at the restart and ran the remainder of the race in the lead to clinch the win ahead of Joey Coulter and Ryan Blaney, becoming the 13th different winner in 13 races at Kansas.

As a result of his win at Kansas, Crafton moves into second place in the Truck Series standings, 12 points behind Johnny Sauter.
