Johnny Sauter on Friday’s Race at Texas Motor Speedway: “I had a blast tonight,” said Sauter. “We were looking pretty good there towards the second stage running in 10th, and I felt like we were one adjustment away from getting into the nitty gritty and running in the top-five, but the track tightened up and lost front turn and couldn’t make up more from there. Thank you to Niece Motorsports and Phil Gould for bringing another great truck.”

Race Recap: Johnny Sauter returned to the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series with Niece Motorsports for his second start of the season. Sauter took to the track on Friday afternoon for a brief practice and qualifying session, netting an 18th-place starting position for the night’s race. With a one-groove race track for much of the race, passing proved to be tough. Sauter methodically moved his way forward, breaking into the top-10 by the end of the second stage. Late contact with the wall and an ending filled with caution flags halted Sauter’s progress to the front of the field, leaving the No. 45 with a 17th-place result.
