Johnny Sauter wins at Bristol, clinches regular-season title: Passing John Hunter Nemecheck for the lead on Lap 196 of 200 at Bristol Motor Speedway, Johnny Sauter picked up his series-best fifth victory of the season, along with the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series regular-season championship, but fellow two-time champion Matt Crafton wasn’t about to begrudge Sauter his success. Thanks to Sauter’s win, Crafton grabbed the eighth and final spot in the NCWTS Playoff on points. Also advancing to the Playoff in Thursday night’s UNOH 200 were race runner-up Stewart Friesen and Grant Enfinger, who clinched the sixth Playoff berth when he took the green flag to start the race. Those three join race winners Sauter, Brett Moffitt, Noah Gragson, Ben Rhodes and Justin Haley in the NCWTS postseason, which starts Aug. 26 at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park. [More](8-16-2018)
Sauter wins Bristol: #21-Johnny Sauter won the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway on Thursday night, holding off a hungry #52-Stewart Friesen. Sauter was second but with just a handful of laps remaining in the UNOH 200, then-leader #8-John Hunter Nemechek slowed, giving Sauter the position. He picked up two trophies when it was said and done; one for the race win, and the other for claiming the regular season championship.
Nemechek finished third. #75-Parker Kligerman, #4-Todd Gilliland, #24-Justin Haley, #41-Ben Rhodes, #88-Matt Crafton, #18-Noah Gragson, and #98-Grant Enfinger were the remainder of the top-10.
