AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Brian Scott used a pass on a restart with two laps left to win a wreck-filled NASCAR Truck Series race at Phoenix International Raceway on Friday night that tightened up the season championship.
James Buescher appeared to well on his way to padding his points lead, running in the top 10 late in the race, but slammed into the wall with three laps left to finish 17th.
He's11 points ahead of Timothy Peters, who avoided the wrecks to finish fourth.
Ty Dillon, second in the points entering the race, couldn't avoid a crash with about 40 laps left and finished 15th, putting him 12 points behind Buescher.
That sets up what could be a wild finish in the season finale at Homestead next weekend.
