    MARTINSVILLE, Va. -- Johnny Sauter earned a spot in the Truck Series championship race with a victory Saturday at Martinsville Speedway.The win was the second of the season for Sauter and 12th of his career. He held off Chase Elliott in the closing laps to preserve the win in the Truck Series inaugural Chase.I feel like we are peaking at the right time, said Sauter. I feel like weve kind of saved some of our best bullets, so to speak, for the end, and we can go and really work hard on our Homestead piece for these next couple weeks.But Im a racer -- I think we all are -- and were not just going to hang out these next two weeks. We want to win races, but were in a luxurious spot, I guess youd call it. I want to win a championship. Ive been doing this a long time, and have won races, but a championship is something thats eluded me.Elliott, making his first Truck Series start of the season, was racing only to gain track experience for the Sprint Cup Series race on Sunday. He led a race-high 109 laps.Coming back to the checkered (flag) was probably my best opportunity to get him, but you have to be careful. Those guys are racing for a championship, Elliott said. Some days its not worth wrecking a guy or whatever.I wish we could have got him, but I feel like I learned a lot to help me in Sundays race.Four of the six Chase drivers finished in the top 10. John Hunter Nemecheck, Christopher Bell and Timothy Peters rounded out the top five, while Daniel Suarez was sixth, followed by Cole Custer and William Byron.Daniel Hemric and Austin Hill rounded out the top 10.Sauter now has three career victories at Martinsville in the Truck Series.Chase driver Matt Crafton had issues with about 50 laps remaining when he developed brake problems. It led to a 17th-place finish and hes now fifth in the Chase standings.I smelled it at one point and kept feeling something going on with the brake pedal and finally it went away, Crafton said.Ben Rhodes and Ben Kennedy made contact late in the race and Kennedy wound up 18th. Hes sixth in the Chase standings, and he confronted Rhodes in the garage after the race. Custom Denver Broncos Jerseys .
