MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) - Darrell Wallace Jr. has won a trucks race at Martinsville Speedway, becoming the first black driver in a half century to win on NASCAR's national level.
Wallace captured a Camping World Truck Series race Saturday, beating Jeb Burton into Turn 1 off a restart with five laps to go.
Wendell Scott won in Jacksonville, Fla., in 1964 in what is now known as the Sprint Cup Series, the highest of NASCAR's three national levels.
Wallace picks up the victory for Kyle Busch Motorsports. He was never below sixth place and led a race-high 96 laps but needed to survive a final restart. Wallace chose the inside line for the reset and quickly pulled away from Burton.
Brendan Gaughan finished second, followed by Burton. Championship leader Matt Crafton finished 17th and leads James Buescher by 51 points with three races remaining.
