Kyle Busch Motorsports takes top two spots in Rhino Linings 350 RELATED: Full race results " Updated series standings LAS VEGAS—He isn't old enough to gamble, but Erik Jones played his cards right on Saturday night and won the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Rhino Linings 350 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway . Jones , 18, made a late-race pass on his Kyle Busch Motorsports teammate Darrell Wallace Jr . with 13 laps to go, earning his second victory in nine starts this season. "It was a blast," said Jones , who recovered from an early race hiccup on pit road to win in his debut at Las Vegas. "I learned a ton. To get a win on a mile-and-a-half that's awesome. It drove so good at the end, I couldn't ask for any more than this. I wanted to win out here so bad, I had this marked down as one I was looking forward to. This is really surreal for me right now." Jones , who notched KBM's 10th NCWTS win of 2014 credited crew chief Eric Phillips with the right adjustments on the final stop that earned him his third-career victory in 14 NCWTS starts. "It was perfect," he added. "We were way, way too loose in traffic before it, but we had a strong Tundra. It was a perfect adjustment. We made a big swing at it, it just worked out." For Wallace Jr., after a dominant performance, took the defeat as a huge bust. "Just got beat, flat out," said Wallace Jr., after recording his fifth runner-up performance of the season. "Congrats to the 51 ( Jones ), hate that it's not the 54. We need a win. (It's) frustrating, I hate finishing second so bad. Thanks to my guys though. I thought it was ours. Another KBM dominance for sure. We'll go onto Talladega and try to finish one spot better." Ryan Blaney recorded his second 21 Means 21 Pole Award of the season and led the field to green, but Wallace Jr. used momentum to make the pass for the lead on Lap 1. Blaney, though, reclaimed the top-spot for six laps on Lap 2, before Wallace Jr. retook control on Lap 8 and led for 10 laps, when German Quiroga made a move on the second restart of the night. His Red Horse Racing teammate Timothy Peters flexed his muscles, taking the lead on Lap 19, before Jones muscled ahead for five laps, until the scheduled competition caution on Lap 30. When the leaders hit pit road, Jones barely overshot his pit stall, which cost him the lead, allowing Peters to put his No. 17 Toyota Tundra back on the point. Peters controlled the field for 17 laps, before Wallace Jr. muscled back around him on Lap 51. The fourth and final caution of the race waived on Lap 57 for an accident in Turn 4, which sent the leaders to pit road. Peters' crew won the race off pit lane, but Wallace Jr. soared ahead on the restart, which set the tone for the second half of the event, until green flag pit stops began on Lap 105. Wallace Jr. cycled back through to the lead on Lap 114, but Jones already on the prowl caught him, making the move on the frontstretch on Lap 133, sealing his triumph. With five races remaining, the NCWTS will take a three-week break before returning to action at Talladega Superspeedway on Saturday, October 18.

Tyler Reddick , Brad Keselowski Racing No. 19 Ford (186.827 mph) 2.

Shake-and-bake : "Actually a couple days ago I was talking with some friends in Mexico. I talk very often with them and they asked me where is going to be my race this weekend, and I told them Mexico and Talladega and they told me, 'Hey, Talladega like the movie?' So, definitely there is a lot of history in this race track." -- Daniel Suarez, who is making his first career Camping World Truck Series start this weekend Not as easy as it looks: "It sounds simple -- holding it wide open and being in the draft, but at the end of the day there is a lot of things that you can do with it. I'll just be trying to learn as much as I can in practice and early in the race and be ready for when it matters." -- Erik Jones , who is making his first start at Talladega Keeping your head: "I've never raced at Talladega Superspeedway , but I already know that it's going to be a wild one. Something crazy always happens here. We ran well in Daytona earlier this year and we're bringing back the same truck, but I know Talladega can be a whole different animal. The key is racing smart so that you can make it to the last lap, and then it's game on until you can cross the finish line." -- Ben Kennedy , who is also making his first start at Talladega Relying on fate: "Racing at Talladega is just like going out and buying a lottery ticket -- you're damned if you do and damned if you don't. There's just no telling -- but you've got to play the game." -- Matt Crafton , the defending series champion and current points leader MORE: READ: Latest Chase news PLAY: Monitor your Chase Grid Game picks WATCH: Latest NASCAR video FOLLOW LIVE: Get RaceView FULL SERIES COVERAGE • Latest news • Standings • Schedule
Veteran holds off Malsam, Gallagher for first win of 2014 season RELATED: Full race results " Updated series standings TALLADEGA, Ala.—Holding off all challengers in a race that went four-wide on the final two laps, Timothy Peters won the fred's 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race on Saturday at Talladega Superspeedway . Peters arrived at the finish line .143 seconds ahead of second-place starter and finisher Tayler Malsam . Spencer Gallagher ran third, followed by Tyler Reddick and Ryan Blaney , who trimmed 14th-place finisher Matt Crafton ’s lead in the series standings to 16 points with four races left in the season. The victory was Peters' first of the season, his first at Talladega and the eighth of his career. After ducking onto the apron to ensure a strong flow to the fuel pickup in his No. 17 Toyota, Peters, who had charged forward from the 26th starting position, led the field to a green-white-checkered-flag finish on Lap 94 of 95, after Norm Benning 's spin in Turn 2 slowed the field for the sixth time. With a strong push from Malsam, Peters hugged the inside line into Turn 1 with Ryan Blaney to his outside. As the field spread out over the final two laps to three-wide and even four-wide, Peters doggedly held the lead and took the checkered flag with Malsam in his tow. "Chris Lambert, who spots for me, did a great job from the time the green flag fell till the checkered flag waved," Peters said. "It was system overload, telling me everything, how far apart they were in front of me, how close the guy behind me was, what run was coming on the outside coming to the checkered flag… "We were making our Toyota Tundra as wide as we could (on the final two laps), and so it feels really good to come across the start/finish line and kind of wipe missing the Daytona/Talladega sweep by (16) hundredths of a second (Peters finished second at Daytona by that margin earlier this year). "It just felt really good to go to Victory Lane." On the final restart, Blaney got a push from sixth-place finisher Erik Jones and thought he was in position for the win but acknowledged he didn't expect a third line to develop to his outside as quickly as it did. "I thought we were in the perfect spot, leading the outside line into Turn 2," Blaney said. But the side draft from the outside line separated Jones from Blaney and broke their momentum, dropping them out of contention for the win. A rare engine failure torpedoed Johnny Sauter 's championship hopes. Sauter's Toyota slowed on Lap 24 and coasted onto pit road. His resulting 31st-place finish left him fourth in the standings, 36 points behind Crafton, his ThorSport Racing teammate. "Whatever… the championship's over," a disconsolate Sauter said in the garage as his team worked on his Tundra. "From here on out, we can just race like hell." At a track legendary for wild action, Ben Kennedy sustained the hardest hit on Lap 65, when Joe Nemechek lost control of his truck and knocked Kennedy's Chevrolet into the outside wall. Nemechek's first concern was for Kennedy's safety. After learning he had walked away from the wreck, Nemechek radioed, "Put all of the blame for that one right square on my shoulders," indicating his Toyota had been sucked around in turbulent air. Note: Daniel Suarez finished 15th in his NCWTS debut. On Sunday, he races in his native Mexico in the NASCAR Toyota Mexico Series.
