Darrell Wallace Jr. wins NASCAR Truck race
MADISON, Ill. (AP) Darrell Wallace Jr. raced to his second career NASCAR Camping World Truck victory Saturday night, holding off German Quiroga at Gateway Motorsports Park.
Wallace took the lead from Quiroga on a late restart after Quiroga tangled with Erik Jones, Wallace’s Kyle Busch Motorsports teammate. Jones bobbled while leading, and Quiroga slammed into the back of Jones’ truck, sending it spinning hard into the inside wall.
Wallace won last year at Martinsville to join Wendell Scott as the only black winners on NASCAR’s national level.
Quiroga, from Mexico, finished a career-high second.
Timothy Peters was third.
