Johnny Sauter has won the NASCAR Truck Series race at Michigan International Speedway on Saturday, holding off Matt Crafton by about a half-second.

Sauter also took over the points lead. Previous leader Ryan Blaney finished 21st after winning the pole.

Sauter won for the first time this season, and it was the sixth top-five finish for Crafton.

Crafton gave up the lead with a late pit stop but was still within striking distance when Sauter held him off in the final stretch.

Ron Hornaday Jr. finished third, followed by Tayler Malsam and Kyle Busch.

Joey Logano was second in qualifying but finished 18th.
