The Texas sweep was conducted by Johnny Sauter Friday night at the Texas Motor Speedway. Sauter won the first truck race of the season at Texas and Friday night he won his second race of the season at Texas. Sauter’s truck came alive in the second half of the race and he held off all the championship contenders for the win which they were much in need of. James Buescher didn’t have the greatest run but he managed to keep the points lead heading into the final two races of the season. Nelson Piquet Jr began the race on the pole and he held the lead for much of the first half of the race. The first caution came out on lap 31 for Ryan Blaney who blew a tire and got into the frontstretch wall. Blaney then took his truck behind the wall and ended his day. On the ensuing restart, the trucks were going three wide for the lead and points leader James Buescher came out of the battle with the lead. Lap 66 brought out the second yellow flag of the night when German Quiroga in the No.51 truck lost his engine going into turn three. The engine loss for the No.51 truck worried his teammate in the No.18 truck. Kyle Busch, piloting the No.18 truck, had an extended pit stop so his team could check under the hood to make sure nothing was wrong. The team ended up changing the battery however and Busch remained on the lead lap. Cale Gale was the leader on the restart but James Buescher snatched the lead away on lap seventy. Johnny Sauter took his first lead of the night with 48 laps remaining in the race. The final round of green *** pit stops began with 33 laps to go. A strategy call put Parker Kligerman in the lead after the stops cycled through. The lead switched hands one final time with eleven laps to go when Kligerman was passed by Sauter. Sauter then pulled away and took the checkered flag for the second time this season. A disappointing season for Sauter who thought he had a shot at the championship this season could turn around slightly with a few more wins. Point’s leader James Buescher ended up finishing eleventh but he still remains atop the points standings by fifteen points over Ty Dillon. Dillon finished the race in the fifth position. With only two races remaining in the 2012 Camping World Truck Series season, the championship battle is shaping up to come down to the final race. One mistake by either driver could endanger their championship hopes. Phoenix is up next Friday night and anything could happen out in the desert.
