Kligerman gets first truck win at Talladega|
Talladega, AL (Sports Network) - Parker Kligerman became the record eighth
different first-time race winner in the Camping World Truck Series this season
by taking Saturday's 250-mile event at Talladega Superspeedway.
Kligerman was pushed to the lead by Johnny Sauter on the final lap just before
a multi-truck crash occurred on the backstretch, ending the race under
caution. Prior to his win, Kligerman had finished in the runner-up position
five times. His maiden victory came in his 44th start.
Sauter finished second, while James Buescher, Ty Dillon and Ryan Blaney
completed the top-five. Buescher and Dillon were running in the top-two before
Kligerman and Sauter moved ahead of them on the last lap.
Dillon entered this race with a one-point lead over Buescher and maintained
that same point margin at the conclusion of the event. Kligerman moved to
within 34 points of the lead.
