Matt Crafton wins Truck race

FORT WORTH, Texas — Matt Crafton raced to his second NASCAR Camping World Truck victory of the season Friday night, running the final 61 laps at Texas Motor Speedway on one tank of fuel.

The defending series champion led 118 of 167 laps on the 1 1/2-mile track, and easily held off pole-sitter Justin Lofton. Crafton's truck ran out of fuel on the way to Victory Lane.

Also the winner in March at Martinsville, Crafton regained the lead in the season standings — moving 11 points ahead of Johnny Sauter.

Joe Nemechek finished third.
