Texas Motor Speedway Race Report 11.2.18


Johnny Sauter, No. 21 ISM Connect Chevrolet
Texas  Motor Speedway

START: 1st

FINISH: 11th


– Sauter earned his seventh career NCWTS pole award and the first since 2016.


“We had a really fast truck in practice yesterday and in qualifying, but that didn’t carry over into the race. We were way too loose and had issues with our tires, and then getting caught up in someone else’s mess didn’t make it any easier. Joe (Shear, crew chief) and the guys tried a lot of things to help tighten it up but we just couldn’t get the handling quite right. But with that being said, to come out of it with an 11th-place finish after the day we had is good. We’ll go on to Phoenix and try to build up some good momentum before Miami.”
