James Buescher captured the checkered flag Friday night in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race, to make his latest visit to victory lane.
Buescher went on to win the Kentucky 201 at Kentucky Speedway after he captured the lead exiting pit road during the race’s seventh caution. Pit road strategy was a key Friday night for Buescher’s fourth win of the 2012 season as well as his fourth trucks career win. The win at Kentucky Friday night gave Buescher the sweep of both Kentucky races in 2012.
Parker Kligerman who brought out the final caution of the night went on to finish right behind Buescher in second. Points leader Ty Dillon finished in third followed by his team mate and race pole sitter Joey Coulter and Brian Scott.
With his second place finish in the Kentucky 201, Kligerman gained his fifth career second place finish.
By the end of the race about half of the field was out of the race. Several cautions and wrecks later 18 trucks remained on the track.
After a wreck on lap 21 involving Johnny Sauter, Todd Bodine, and Tim George Jr, it would go on to end the night for Bodine. George would go on to make his way back onto the track, finishing laps behind the leader. Sauter would go on to recover and capture a top ten finish.
Closing out the top ten in the Kentucky 201 were Sauter, Justin Lofton, Miguel Paludo, Matt Crafton, and John Wes Townsley.
Leaving Kentucky Dillon remains as the truck series points leader. Dillon remains in the lead four points ahead of Buescher.
