Elliott wins Alpha Energy Solutions 250 at Martinsville
SHOP: Elliott gear RELATED: Race results " Standings " Detailed breakdown MARTINSVILLE, Va. -- Polesitter Chase Elliott held off defending NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion Johnny Sauter after a restart with 12 laps left and pulled away to win Saturday’s Alpha Energy Solutions 250 at Martinsville Speedway by 1.865 seconds. Elliott grabbed the lead from third-place finisher Christopher Bell on Lap 234, when Bell’s Toyota tangled with Austin Cindric's Ford through Turns 1 and 2. Bell lost the top spot, and Sauter charged past into the second position before NASCAR threw the 10th and final caution of the race. MORE: Bell: It's miserable to lead all day and not win " Bell, Cindric collect The decisive move, however, came after the final restart on Lap 239, when Elliott blocked Sauter's crossover move in Turn 3 and kept the lead. "It was fun today," Elliott said. "I had some help there with Christopher's misfortune. I was trying all I could to get by him. He was doing a really good job of maintaining my bumper, a good job with me hitting him … His bumper was getting progressively more blue (the color of Elliott's car) as the day went. "It was a hard-fought battle, for sure." And then came the battle with Sauter, who said he would have made the same blocking move on the final restart, had the roles been reversed. "Chase did what he needed to do with the old block," Sauter said. "I saw him coming in the mirror with a big run, and I knew I had to block him," Elliott said. "Fortunately, it worked out." Bell led a race-high 96 laps, 90 in the final 110-lap stage. Before that, GMS Racing teammates Elliott and Sauter dominated the action. Elliott, a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series regular getting extra track time in preparation for Sunday's STP 500 (2 p.m. ET on FS1, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio), won the first stage. SEE: Every Camping World Truck Series winner of '17 Sauter took the second stage but had to come through the field from 13th following the restart for the third stage after pitting for tires in a contrarian strategy to that of Elliott, who got fresh rubber before the end of Stage 2. Elliott (92 laps), Sauter (62 laps) and Bell were the only drivers to lead the 250 -lap event at the .526-mile track, but the action behind them was ferocious, producing 10 cautions for 63 laps. Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender Noah Gragson recovered from a spin off Chase Briscoe's bumper to finish fourth, one spot behind his Kyle Busch Motorsports teammate. Ty Dillon and Brett Moffitt ran fifth and sixth, respectively.

Most notably among the day's festivities, Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR XFINITY Series cars from participating teams JR Motorsports, Roush Fenway Racing and Richard Childress Racing will be taking over the city streets during the midday hours, making a pit stop in front of Philadelphia City Hall and putting on a show for fans along the way.

A large cast of drivers from the NASCAR XFINITY Series will be spread across the city throughout the day, visiting the Franklin Institute, Reading Terminal Market, Thomas Edison High School and Philadelphia Phillies game that evening.
