Timothy Peters takes NASCAR truck series win at Talladega

TALLADEGA, Ala. — Timothy Peters won the NASCAR truck series race at Talladega Superspeedway for the second consecutive year.

Peters was second on the final restart in Saturday's Fred's 150 after a multi-truck accident caused a stoppage of 15 minutes for the track to be cleaned. Brandon Jones got a terrific jump as the leader but he pulled too far away from the line of trucks behind him in the bottom lane.

That let Peters, in the top lane, catch Jones and pull past for the lead. Then Spencer Gallagher tried to go low to pass Peters, but he was hooked by John Wes Townley to bring out a race-ending caution.

NASCAR said last week it would only make one attempt to finish both the truck race and today's Sprint Cup race under green.

"It was really was no different with one (green-white-checkered flag) attempt versus three. Everybody was maybe a tad more aggressive," Peters said.

Jones finished second, followed by Mason Mingus, Erik Jones and Tyler Reddick.

Formula One: Qualifying was rained out for today's U.S. Grand Prix in Austin, Texas, and was rescheduled for 10 this morning (CNBC).

  5. Jameis Winston as 2017 NFL MVP? 66-to-1 odds from Vegas

    Blogs

    Could Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston be an NFL MVP in 2017? It's certainly unlikely, but the sports book at Bovada has opening lines with Winston getting 66-to-1 odds, worse than 22 other players across the league.

    Bucs fans would be very happy if quarterback Jameis WInston can put himself into consideration for the NFL MVP award during the 2017 season.
