Iowa: Truck results

James Buescher snatched victory from the hands of Ross Chastain after two green-white-chequered restart attempts in Sunday afternoon's Truck Series race at Iowa Speedway.
Turner Scott Motorsports' James Buescher led for only nine laps, but they included the only one that really counted as he stole victory in the Fan Appreciation 200 race at Iowa Speedway from longtime leader Ross Chastain. It's Buescher's sixth NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victory in 109 starts and his second of 2013.

With the Cup and Nationwide drivers in Richmond for the weekend, Chastain had been able to clinch pole position for the race on the seven-eighths of a mile oval in Saturday qualifying, his first pole in 36 Truck races. Chastain, 20, is also the sixth different driver under the age of 21 this year to win pole in the series (the others being Ryan Blaney, Jeb Burton, Chase Elliott, Brennan Newberry and Darrell Wallace Jr.) Once the race got underway, Chastain quickly pulled out a gap of two seconds over James Buescher during the opening laps, but that margin evaporated on lap 37 when Elliott spun out of the race at turn 2.

Ty Dillon stayed out of the pits to assume the lead while Buescher and Jeb Burton both beat Chastain off pit road for the restart on lap 45. Chastain quickly moved back up to second, but Dillon proved a different matter despite the #3 suffering low voltage problems, and the Richard Childress Racing driver continued to hold the lead until he came in for his deferred pit stop on lap 80, which handed control of the race back to Chastain and dropped Dillon out of the top 20.

A debris caution on lap 135 just after a round of green flag pit stops saw Chastain once again lead the field to the green flag on lap 141, but this time he was jumped by Timothy Peters on the backstretch while Dillon was meanwhile preoccupied with a fight with Erik Jones over ninth place, which ended up with the #3 making contact with the lapped car of Dakoda Armstrong that left Dillon's car with front right wheel rub even though it was able to maintain speed.

A debris caution on lap 169 gave Chastain a new opportunity to pass Peters for the lead, and this time it worked as Peters was left struggling to keep the #17 off the wall. A fourth caution materialised when Brandon Jones and Jeb Burton both spun out in turn 4 on lap 188 which set up a new restart with five to go, and this time Chastain lost out to a new challenger Ryan Blaney while behind them Buescher made contact with Peters who spun into Dillon, putting the race back under yellow and forcing the event into green-white-chequered overtime.

Chastain didn't have to wait for the restart before being handed the lead, as fuel pick-up issues sent Blaney onto pit road before the first GWC restart attempt which was quickly aborted after contact between Brendan Gaughan and Joey Coulter, but which was still long enough to allow Buescher to get a nose in front in the brief period of green. That put Buescher in the lead position for the first time in the race, just before the second restart attempt which finally went full distance - and he needed no second invitation to steal the victory from Chastain, despite the latter having led for 116 of the 212 laps of the race.

In the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series standings, Matt Crafton now leads by 37 points over Buescher after a quiet run to seventh place at Iowa.
