Harrison Burton: Wins Truck Series Pole at Iowa

Brett Moffitt Moffitt led a race-high 76 laps

Burton won the pole for the M&M's 200 Camping World Truck Series race at Iowa Speedway Saturday afternoon. Gilliland (who finished 28th) remained within one lap of the leaders until lap 101 when he spun into the wall and did heavy damage.

By the end of Stage Two on lap 120 he was in eighth place. Within 10 laps he was up to 12th and got back into the top 10 by lap 91.

Because Moffitt - who grew up on Iowa dirt tracks before climbing NASCAR's ranks - had to hold off a hard-charging Noah Gragson in a furious finish that featured sparks from Gragson's No. 18 after a failed last-gasp slingshot attempt sent him into the wall as the Iowan sailed under the checkered flag.

His lead was short-lived as Friesen passed him on Lap 77, claiming control of the race. Iowa has been a pretty good track for him as well. He managed to cross the finish line second despite the contact. His previous top five was a fourth at Dover.

Sauter, who entered the night victor of the past two truck races, was battling an ill-handling truck throughout the segment and was able to finish eighth in the segment.

Burton started the final 80-lap stage in third place.

On lap 134, Stewart Friesen and Matt Crafton made contact battling for eighth, pushing the left front tire in on Crafton's truck.

Gragson dove into turn 4 and overshot the exit, making heavy contact with the wall. "To win here and on Father's Day weekend means everything to me".

Thanks to Moffitt's stirring win at Atlanta Motor Speedway in February and tonight's visit to Casey's General Store's Victory Lane, he has a virtually guaranteed spot in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoffs.

Gragson earned his best Iowa finish of second while his teammate Harrison Burton finished third from pole.

Moffitt prevailed, though, earning his second win of the season.

"To win here, in the truck series on a national level, it's huge", Moffitt said.

Coughlin survived his incident to finish seventh.
