Sauter Looking To Add To Truck Series Legacy, His Teammate Justin Haley Eyeing 2018 Championship

The 2018 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship goes through GMS Racing. That’s just my opinion, but one that I feel is justified. They’ve been the most dominant team throughout the course of the season and have half of the field in the Championship 4. Out of them, I honestly feel this is Johnny Sauter’s title to lose. If he does win the championship, we have to start looking at him like a future Hall of Famer. I mean this would be championship No. 2 for the Wisconsin native. Both…

Johnny Sauter Dominates At Martinsville Trip To Championship 4 At Homestead

MARTINSVILLE, VA – The lack of on track activity didn’t slow Johnny Sauter down this weekend at the Martinsville Speedway. The GMS Racing driver dominated Saturday’s Texas Roadhouse 200 en route to his sixth NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victory of the season. Friday’s practice sessions were washed out, so the only time the drivers had on the .526-mile Virginia oval this weekend was qualifying on Saturday morning and the race a few hours later. That didn’t faze the crafty veteran of Sauter though. He led 148 of 200 laps and…

Grant Enfinger Wins Friday Night’s Truck Series Race In Vegas, Main Takeaways From The Race

Grant Enfinger’s call to not take tires on the Lap 82 caution paid off in a big way on Friday night. Enfinger, the leader at the time, stayed out on old tires which hurt his short run speed on the ensuing restart. He’d fall back but luck out for some late race caution. He’d come down later than everyone else to get new Goodyear Tires and due to more cautions and a red flag period, he’d have fresher rubber to pass everyone back to win his second career NASCAR Camping…
