KANSAS CITY, Kansas—James Buescher passed Brad Keselowski with 10 laps remaining Saturday and pulled away to win his first career Trucks series race at Kansas Speedway.
Buescher had the fastest truck most of the afternoon but lost the lead on the final round of pit stops. He elected to take four tires while Keselowski took only two, and that allowed him to power by the Sprint Cup regular and wrap up his first series win.
The 22-year-old Buescher won his first NASCAR race in the Nationwide series at Daytona earlier this season but had been winless in 75 starts in the Trucks series over four-plus years.
Points leader Timothy Peters also got around Keselowski and finished second in the SFP 250. Nelson Piquet Jr. finished fourth and Todd Bodine was fifth.
