Gragson Gets Emotional Victory In Kansas

After breaking down in tears when crashing last weekend at Dover while battling for the lead on the second to last lap, Noah Gragson backed it up with a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victory on Friday night at the Kansas Speedway.

Gragson, earned the pole for the race and dominated in leading 128 of the 167 laps en route to his second career Truck Series victory. The win makes him playoff bound too. 

It was actually a clean sweep of the action at the 1.5-mile track as Gragson won both stages too.

It nearly didn’t happen. On the final green flag pit stop sequence on Lap 134, Gragson took four tires on pit road. Others took two. But, on Lap 157, Gragson passed Stewart Friesen and owner/teammate Kyle Busch and never looked back.

Myatt Snider tried to stretch his fuel but ran out with five laps left and handed the win back to Gragson.

Busch, would finished runner-up in his No. 4 Toyota to give KBM a 1-2 effort. Friesen had to settle for third in his No. 52 Chevrolet while John Hunter Nemechek and Johnny Sauter rounded out the top five.

Toyota, has now won six straight Truck Series race in Kansas as thee last time they didn’t win was 2012.

Sauter, has five top five finishes through the first six races of the season and takes the points lead to Charlotte.
