TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) - Mike Wallace proved to be a suitable substitute for Elliott Sadler at Talladega Superspeedway on Saturday.
Wallace picked up his first victory in the Truck Series since 2000 when Ron Hornaday Jr. pushed him to the win. Wallace was making his 115th career start in the series, but only second this year.
He drove a Kevin Harvick Inc. Chevrolet in place of Sadler, who stayed home awaiting the birth of his second child.
Hornaday finished second and was followed by championship contender James Buescher.
Austin Dillon finished seventh and had his lead over Buescher sliced to three points. Dillon was in position to race for the win until NASCAR ordered him back to 17th for failing to maintain reasonable speed during the last caution.
