Sauter Wins in Texas, Triad Scores 1-2 Finish
FT WORTH, Texas -- One year removed from a black-flag penalty that cost him a Camping World Truck Series win at Texas Motor Speedway, Johnny Sauter belatedly pulled into Victory Lane on Friday night.
Sauter passed ThorSport Racing teammate Matt Crafton on Lap 146 of 167 and rolled to victory by a margin of 2.101 seconds in the 16th annual WinStar World Casino 400. Sauter, who hadn't led a race since the season opener at Daytona International Speedway in February, decisively snapped a string of three consecutive finishes of 24th or worse.
