CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Justin Lofton raced to his first NASCAR Truck Series victory Friday night, getting the jump on race leader Brad Keselowski on a late restart and holding on at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Lofton, who struggled with restarts earlier in night, became the fifth winner this year on the Truck Series. Keselowski finished second, and Todd Bodine was third.
Lofton, who had 15 top 10s in his previous 55 career Truck races, called the win ``amazing,'' adding that ``it's been a long time coming.''
Keselowski, looking to become the 24th driver to win in all three NASCAR national series, got bumped from behind by Ron Hornaday on one of the restarts and nearly got sideways. After the race Keselowski, had a verbal sparring match with Hornaday.
