James Buescher Wins at Michigan


Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(BROOKLYN, Mich.) — In a surprise turn of events, James Buescher won the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Michigan.

Buescher narrowly beat out Kyle Busch with about three laps remaining.

Busch was in the lead until Brenden Gaughan put the pressure on Busch to allow Buescher to sneak in and take the lead.

“I figured once I could get out front, I felt like I could hold everybody off because it was hard to pass,” Busch said. “The 62 got a run on me down the backstretch, and I pulled a little low to block, and then I heard that the 31 was on the inside of him. So how the 31 and can get a run on the 62, who’s got a run on me, is beyond me. It blows my mind, but he got a run on all of us.”

Meanwhile, Ty Dillon, Joey Logano, and Miguel Paludo rounded up the top-five.

Matt Krafton, who finished ninth in the race, now holds a 51-point lead over Jeb Burton for the points lead.
