Michigan: Truck results

James Buescher got the jump on Kyle Busch in the final restart at Michigan to clinch his first win of 2013 in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
James Buescher claimed victory in the Saturday afternoon Michigan National Guard 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Michigan International Speedway, his fifth win in 106 races in the series and his first of what had been to date a somewhat fallow 2013 after having previously clinched the 2012 Truck title.

Buescher took the lead at the final restart of the race six laps from the finish, when he got the jump on long-time leaders Kyle Busch and Miguel Paludo at the restart. While Busch was able to take back second spot in the time reaming there was no catching Buescher, who finished over half a second clear of the rest of the field at the chequered flag.

After setting a new series qualifying track record, rookie Jeb Burton had claimed his fourth pole position of the year for the start alongside Brendan Gaughan. He led for all but three of the first 44 laps of the 100-lap race, but then Busch was pushed to the front by Ty Dillon and the #4 never found its way back to the front again. Busch and Miguel Paludo spent the rest of the day trading the lead between themselves until the final caution allowed Buescher to take to the front for the first time and get away from them both at the crucial moment. Busch ended the race with 33 laps in the lead and Paludo with 20.

There were seven cautions for a total of 29 laps, the first coming on the opening lap of the race when Ryan Blaney hit the wall in turn 2. A slow Jennifer Jo Cobb brought out the second on lap 16, and turn 4 contact between Johnny Sauter and Max Gresham resulted in the third on lap 27. A debris caution on lap 56 and a yellow for John Wes Townley hitting the wall on lap 66 together with a backstretch spin for German Quiroga on lap 76 and a tyre blowout for Brett Moffitt on lap 90 rounded out the day.

In the championship, Matt Crafton continues to leads the point standings with his margin now 51 points over Jeb Burton.
