Defending champion James Buescher
raced to his first NASCAR Trucks Series victory of the season Saturday, passing Kyle Busch
to take the lead with three laps remaining at Michigan International Speedway
Busch led out of a restart with six laps to go in the 200-mile, 100-lap race. Brendan Gaughan
was pressuring Busch at the front when Buescher was able to pass to the inside of both. Buescher, the Trucks Series champion last year, hadn't finished higher than third this season.
When Buescher crossed the finish in his No. 31 Chevrolet, he was a half-second ahead of Busch, who barely held off Ty Dillon for second.
It was Busch's fourth second-place finish in seven Trucks Series starts at MIS, where he's never won on this circuit.
