SAUTER TAKES TEXAS CHECKERS 6.8.18

Johnny Sauter holds off Stewart Friesen for victory in PPG 400.

Johnny Sauter dominated the final stage, but had to negotiate two late-race restarts and outlast Stewart Friesen to win the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series PPG 400 at Texas Motor Speedway. The win was his fourth of the season and comes on the heels of his win three weeks ago at Charlotte.

The 40-year-old Wisconsin native has now won three of the last four races at Texas and further lengthened his lead in the point standings to 77 over Noah Gragson. The win is his 21st career win in the Truck Series.
