DOVER, Del. – Matt Crafton raced to his first Trucks Series victory in 16 career starts at Dover International Speedway.
Crafton held off Daniel Suarez down the stretch Friday for his 12th career series victory. The two-time season champion had been unable to turn 75 career laps led into a victory in his previous starts on the mile concrete track.
Crafton had said he never thought he'd be able to break though and win at a track that had given him fits. Coming off a second-place finish last weekend at Kansas Speedway, Crafton led 78 of the 200 laps.
With truck owner Kyle Busch rooting him on from pit road, Suarez was second. Kyle Busch Motorsports driver William Byron won last week at Kansas.
Christopher Bell, Johnny Sauter, and Cole Custer completed the top five.
