FORT WORTH, Texas -- Nearing the home stretch, Johnny Sauter leads the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series WinStar World Casino 400 after 150 laps at Texas Motor Speedway.

Driving the No. 13 Hot Honeys/Curb Records Toyota, Sauter battled up from starting 20th to take the lead from No. 88 Matt Crafton in the 146th lap. Sauter is trying for his first Truck Series win of the year.

Crafton, driving the ThorSport Racing Toyota, was able to take the lead in the 137th lap when No. 3 Ty Dillon nudged No. 31 James Buescher while the two were jockeying for first, causing both cars to spin out. Crafton began tenth and also has yet to win a Truck Series race this year.

Buescher, a Plano native, had just taken his sixth lead of the race when Dillon started to get physical with him. Dillon had already bested Buescher twice coming off pit row, thanks to superb work from his pit crew. Dillon and Buescher currently sit at ninth and 16th respectively.

No. 6 Justin Lofton, who started on the pole, fell back considerably coming off pit row during a caution. The driver of the CollegeComplete.com Chevrolet currently sits in 16th place.

The top five after 150 are Sauter, Crafton, No. 22 Joey Coulter, No. 2 Brendan Gaughan, and No. 18 Jason Leffler.
