Hemric, Crafton move up in standings after last-lap chaos
RELATED: Race results " Updated standings KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- It was a night that an 18-year-old scored his first career in NASCAR's Camping World Truck Series. A two-time champion went from first to 10th to second. And the first- and second-place trucks on the final lap wrecked before they got to the finish line. In other words, Friday night's Toyota Tundra 250 at Kansas Speedway was your typical Truck Series race. "It got pretty exciting there; obviously all you hope for at the end of a deal like this, especially with all the cautions we had in the race, was to have an opportunity," said third-place finisher Daniel Hemric ( Brad Keselowski Racing). William Byron seized the opportunity, picking up the win for Kyle Busch Motorsports after getting nearly overwhelmed on a green, white, checkered restart. But contact between Johnny Sauter (GMS Racing) and Ben Rhodes (ThorSport Racing) while battling for the lead shot their chances and opened the door for Byron. RELATED: Rhodes makes contact with Sauter "It was very interesting," runnerup Matt Crafton (ThorSport), the two-time series champ said, pausing to watch a replay of the final lap play out and the leaders spin. "Wow. He smoked her down in there, didn't he? "I shoved it three wide in the middle and I'm like 'Yeah, this probably isn't the way to go.' I lifted just a little bit, got it back to the bottom and got a decent run. The bottom had been terrible all night and I got a decent run, everybody got loose and checked up … it worked out for me." MORE: Relive the day in photos Hemric and Crafton each improved five positions in the points standings -- Hemric vaulted from seventh to fifth and Crafton returned to the top-10 after sitting on the outside following the season's second and third races. He now sits sixth as the series prepares for to head to Dover International Speedway next week. It will be the first back-to-back race weekends for the series this season. Crafton led 57 laps, tops in a 170-lap race that was slowed by 11 cautions. The leader on a restart on Lap 135, Crafton quickly fell back through the field after contact with the second-place truck of Timothy Peters (Red Horse Racing). Gathering it back in after falling to 10th, he slowly began working his way back toward the front. "I was like, 'OK, we'll probably be all right, probably drive back by here in a minute'" Crafton said of the initial setback. But advancing through the field proved to be a handful and the final restart saw his No. 88 Toyota seventh in the running order. And then? "That last restart was just chaos," he said.

William Byron earns first Truck Series win at Kansas
RELATED: Race results " Series standings KANSAS CITY, Kan. – William Byron remembers watching NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races when he was six years old. Now 18, Byron has a win in the series he watched as a child. But it took a strong truck and a stroke of good luck for Byron to win Friday night’s Toyota Tundra 250 and reach Victory Lane at Kansas Speedway for the first time in five series starts. Driving the No. 9 Toyota for Kyle Busch Motorsports, Byron was third when frontrunner Johnny Sauter led Ben Rhodes into Turn 3 on the final lap of overtime. Rhodes drove his No. 41 Tundra hard to the inside of Sauter's No. 21 Chevrolet, clipped the left rear quarter panel of Sauter’s truck and sent both vehicles spinning toward the outside wall. When NASCAR threw the 11th caution of the race, Byron had the lead, and two-time series champion Matt Crafton was running second. "I just got ran over by a bozo ... I guess he's just brain dead," an irate Sauter said after the incident. "It's just unfortunate that sometimes you can't race the way you want to." For Byron, who became the ninth NASCAR Next driver to win a national series race, there was only joy. "It was crazy the last couple of restarts, and I had the lead there on the green-flag run (before the caution that forced overtime), and I was really just praying for no cautions, but you have to earn it," Byron said. "And my crew chief, Rudy Fugle, really told me about that on all the restarts. He's like, 'This is how you earn it,' so I just can’t thank (sponsor) Liberty University enough. This is a dream come true. I was six years old watching Truck races. Didn't start racing until I was 14, and just to be in a Toyota Tundra like this is amazing." The last lap wreck wasn't the first time in the race Byron benefitted from contact between two trucks in front of him. Moments after a restart on Lap 135, the Toyotas of Crafton and Timothy Peters collided, breaking the momentum of both trucks and shuffling them out of the top 10. Byron inherited the lead, shed eventual fourth-place finisher Christopher Bell after a brief battle and streaked away to a lead of 4.5 seconds before caution for Tyler Reddick 's spin on Lap 164 of a scheduled 167 forced the overtime and bunched the field. Sauter took full advantage of the restart in overtime, diving to the inside and surging into the lead with Rhodes passing Byron for second in the process. Sauter appeared to have the race in hand until Rhodes made his kamikaze move and wrecked the leader in the final pair of corners. Notes: With the victory, Byron is all but assured of qualifying for the first Camping World Truck Series Chase. ... Peters finished eighth and holds an eight-point lead in the series standings over Daniel Hemric , who ran third on Friday night.
Sauter: 'I got ran over by a bozo'
Johnny Sauter was leading on the final lap of the Toyota Tundra 250 at Kansas Speedway and looked to be closing in on his second win of the 2016 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season. But contact from Ben Rhodes , who was running second at the time, sent Sauter out of the lead and allowed William Byron to get to the lead before the caution came out to end the race in NASCAR overtime. See what Sauter had to say about the finish in the video above.
Erik Jones pockets second Dash 4 Cash win of season
RELATED: Race results " Standings " Dash 4 Cash hub DOVER, Del. -- Erik Jones has a few extra bucks in his pocket after a weekend of racing at the "Monster Mile." The Joe Gibbs Racing driver locked up his second Dash 4 Cash win of the season Saturday at Dover International Speedway , topping an eligible field that also included his teammate, Daniel Suarez , Richard Childress Racing 's Ty Dillon and JR Motorsports' Justin Allgaier . Oh, by the way, he won the Ollie's Bargain Outlet 200 race outright, to boot. By virtue of his two Dash 4 Cash wins (the other came in April at Bristol, a race he also won) along with two said race victories, Jones now sits atop the XFINITY Series Chase Grid with three wins. He's fifth overall in the points standings and would be higher had he not wrecked from the pole in the Dash 4 Cash race last month at Richmond. RELATED: Dash 4 Cash 101 -- What you need to know "It's pretty cool to get another win here ... at Dover and another Dash 4 Cash race," Jones said. "I wouldn't say (the new format plays to my strengths), I'd say that it's more the tracks; that they're at tracks that I've had historically good runs at. They just kind of work out that way. ... "I think our ability to adjust and maintain and get better throughout the day and throughout the race is just one of the best in the garage, and having the opportunity to do it after the heat race just gives us that little bit of an edge." With three Dash 4 Cash races in the books, only Saturday's Heat 2 winner, Dillon (winner of the second event at Richmond), still has a shot at earning a Chase berth by acquiring a pair of D4C wins. The RCR driver finished fifth, while Heat 1 winner Allgaier landed a spot ahead in fourth. Suarez was ninth. Drivers will have one last chance at the $100,000 check on July 23 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Lilly Diabetes 250 (3:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN). Jones is just hoping he's allowed to spend some of his Bristol winnings by then. "I'm still waiting to get my cut of the last check," the JGR driver said. "I haven't gotten a chance to spend any of it yet." While the 19-year-old isn't quite sure how he'll splurge yet, don't expect any exotic pet monkeys a la Tony Stewart coming his way. "It's hard to say. I'm not one to buy too many extravagant things, I guess," Jones said. "You never know. Maybe I'll find something I come across that I may want. I guess we'll see when that day comes around."
