Sauter wins trucks race

MARTINSVILLE, Va. — Johnny Sauter passed Jeb Burton for the lead on a restart with 234 laps to go Saturday and won the NASCAR truck race at Martinsville Speedway, his second victory in as many races in the series this season.


Sauter earned his eighth career victory in the series, and second at Martinsville.


“Two for two starting out. This is unbelievable,” Sauter said in Victory Lane.


He got there by passing Burton, the pole-sitting rookie making just his seventh start in the series, on the outside following a restart with 17 laps to go, and then holding on as the field behind him shuffled.
