Sauter passes Kyle Busch for Trucks win

BY foxsports • April 2, 2011

Johnny Sauter passed Kyle Busch one lap before the finish to win the Trucks Series race at Martinsville Speedway.

Busch had the race wrapped up until a caution with nine laps to go set up one final restart. He had a good start, but Sauter reeled him in and passed Busch right before the white flag.

Sauter then pulled away for his first win of the season.

Sauter's win Saturday was the first for a non-Sprint Cup Series driver this season. Cup drivers had won every race in the Nationwide and Trucks Series this season.

Busch finished second and was followed by Ron Hornaday Jr., Kevin Harvick and Timothy Peters.
