Phoenix: Truck results

The penultimate NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race of 2013 proved to be very much a two-handed affair, with 17-year-old Erik Jones finally emerging triumphant over Ross Chastain.
Erik Jones became the youngest winner in NASCAR Camping World Truck Series history by clinching victory in the Friday night Lucas Oil 150 at Phoenix International Raceway, taking his maiden national-level win in only his fifth race appearance after holding out in a race-long battle with Ross Chastain in a race completely dominated by the pair.

It was Chastain who started from the front, having just edged out Jones by 0.046s for his second pole of 2013. He immediately converted pole into the lead of the race which comfortably survived an early caution and restart after Brennan Newberry hit the wall on the first lap, while Jones was looking less happy and lost second place to Brendan Gaughan and was soon also passed by James Buescher. Gaughan picked up the lead after opting for two-tyres in the first round of pit stops (under yellow on lap 37 for Miguel Paludo spinning out in turn 3), but Jones surged ahead in the brief green before the third caution of the night for Chase Elliott spinning out at the restart on lap 41.

Once the race resumed, Jones continued to lead ahead of Gaughan and Ty Dillon and was still out in front on lap 87 when Ron Hornaday Jr. spun out with tyre issues and hit the wall hard in turn 4. This time Chastain won the race off pit road to lead at the restart, but Jones promptly picked it up again when the track went green and was still in the lead when a caution for debris from Jones' Kyle Busch Motorsport team mate Joey Coulter's #18 materialised on lap 112. The restart allowed Chastain to get the upper-hand before another rapid caution materialised on lap 120 for John Wes Townley spinning out and crashing in turn 1.

With just over 20 laps remaining at the restart there was some hard racing at the green flag, and Martinsville winner Darrell Wallace Jr. ended up making contact with Timothy Peters as the two battled for position on lap 133 to trigger the seventh and final caution of the evening. Chastain still had control at the restart on lap 141, but after being blocked on the high line Jones went low to take the lead. With an absence of further cautions to help Chastain reverse the situation in the five minutes remaining it was Jones who built up a 1.616s lead by the chequered flag to become the Truck Series' youngest-ever winner at the age of 17 years and four months - five months younger than Chase Elliott when he claimed his first victory earlier this season.

"On the last restart, we stayed with him through 1 and 2 on the top side," Jones described of the crucial final moments. "He squeezed us up, but that's racing with ten to go, you can't blame him for that ... It makes you more determined than you were before [so] I was really determined after that to go back and get it. I really felt like we had a better truck from the previous restart, and I really felt like it was our race all day and didn't want to let it slip away."

Gaughan and Dillon ended the race in third and fourth respectively, while Matt Crafton all-but mathematically locked down this year's Truck championship title by finishing immediately behind in fifth place to extend his 46 point lead over Dillon and Buescher in the standings going into the final race of the year at Home-stead Miami next weekend. Crafton now has to only start next Friday's race to be crowned the 2013 champion.
