 HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) - James Buescher won NASCAR's Truck Series championship by avoiding trouble in the season finale Friday night.
Cale Gale won the 200-mile race at Homestead-Miami Speedway, edging Kyle Busch at the line as both trucks seemed glued together after hard contact.
The more significant celebration in Victory Lane, though, was saved for Buescher.
Ty Dillon was in position to pull off an upset with three laps remaining - he was running second and just a point behind - but made contact with Kyle Larson.
Buescher was far enough behind Dillon and Larson that he was able to drive around the wreckage that also collected Ryan Blaney. Buescher had a comfortable points lead over Timothy Peters when racing resumed with two laps remaining.
Buescher ended up 13th after the green-white-checkered finish, crossing the line five spots behind of Peters.
Peters finished second in the points race.
