Sauter gets fourth win of the season in series' closest finish at Texas: Johnny Sauter continued his uncanny mastery of Texas Motor Speedway Friday night, holding off Stewart Friesen on a three-lap shootout to win the 22nd annual PPG 400 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race. The series point-leader, Sauter posted his fifth career win on TMS' 1.5-mile oval and fourth in eight events this season.
