Johnny Sauter won his fifth race at Texas Motor Speedway and for the third time in 2018 by conserving both his fuel and tires in a 55-lap run at the end of the PPG 400.
Stewart Friesen seesawed throughout the night after leading the field to green from the pole. He finished second following a late-race charge through the field.
Sauter’s win padded his lead to 77 points over Noah Gragson, who finished 10th at Texas.
Brett Moffit was involved in two incidents during the night and lost 30 points to the leader, but maintained his position third in the standings.
Grant Enfinger (96 points behind Sauter) and Matt Crafton (-99) round out the top five.
