Sadler wins his first ever truck race Elliott Sadler held off Kasey Kahne in a green-white-checkered finish to win the inaugural Camping World Truck Series race at Pocono on Saturday.
Sadler was the beneficiary after a flurry of late mishaps sent the race into NASCAR's version of overtime. He cut off Matt Crafton's pass attempt inside, then pulled away from Kahne on the final lap to take victory.
It was Sadler's first Trucks win, giving him victories in all three NASCAR racing series.
Sadler started from the pole and led for much of the first half of the afternoon before being challenged by points leader Todd Bodine and Cup stars Kahne and Denny Hamlin.
Each took turns near the front before Sadler closed with his late dash to the checkered flag. Kahne finished second, Crafton was third and Bodine wound up 12th.
Sadler was in his first Trucks race since a ninth-place finish last month at Michigan. He'll remember his afternoon at Pocono for more than just the raceway's first trucks race.
