NASCAR NEWS & NOTES

    NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Chase Hits Home Stretch

    Only three races remain in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Chase heading into Friday’s Striping Technology 350 at Texas Motor Speedway. With his win at Martinsville, Johnny Sauter captured the first berth in the Championship 4 race slated for Homestead-Miami Speedway on Nov. 18.

    Sauter is trailed on the Chase Grid by Christopher Bell (13 points above Matt Crafton on the cutoff line), Timothy Peters (+12), William Byron (+9), Matt Crafton (-9) and Ben Kennedy (-10).

    Byron won at Texas in the spring and will attempt the track sweep on Friday. Crafton (spring 2014 and spring 2015) and Sauter (2012 sweep) are the only other Chase drivers who have won at Texas.

    Sauter Secures Spot In Championship 4 With Win At Martinsville

    Johnny Sauter led 50 laps on the way to victory in last Saturday’s Texas Roadhouse 200 at Martinsville Speedway. The win was Sauter’s second of the season and the 12th of his career, but more importantly earned him a berth in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Chase Championship 4 race at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Nov. 18.

    “The key deal is liking a race track, and I can’t think of a better race track to decide a championship than Homestead,” Sauter said. “It’s a very racy place - you can run all over the race track. I feel like we are peaking at the right time. I feel like we’ve kind of saved some of our best bullets, so to speak, for the end, and we can go and really work hard on our Homestead piece for these next couple weeks.”

    In nine career starts at Homestead, Sauter owns one win, two top fives, six top 10s and an average finish of 11.7.

    Byron Hopes For Texas Sweep

    William Byron earned his first career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series win at Kansas, but Texas Motor Speedway was really where his dream season took off. Byron pulled off a late-race pass of Matt Crafton at the 1.5-mile track and led the final five laps to secure his secure his second victory. He’d go on to win two of the next three races (Iowa and Kentucky).

    On the season, he leads the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in wins (6), top fives (10), average running position (8.1), laps led (572) and driver rating (105.0).

    One of the six drivers remaining in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Chase, Byron is trying to join Erik Jones as the second consecutive Kyle Busch Motorsports driver to win the Sunoco Rookie of the Year award and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship in the same season. Byron won the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East championship last year in his first and only season on the circuit.

    Bell Is Ringin’ Heading Toward Texas

    When talking about potential NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champions, the names William Byron and Matt Crafton keep coming up. Christopher Bell’s name should be added to that list. Quietly, Bell has tallied 10 top-10 finishes in his last 12 races, including no finish worse than sixth in his last six starts. The No.  4 Toyota driver has posted the best average finish in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Chase (4.5).
