LAS VEGAS -- Nelson Piquet Jr. converted a last-ditch, last-lap pass for the lead Saturday night at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, prevailing in the Smith's 350 to seal his second NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victory of the season.
Piquet dove low to the inside of Matt Crafton in the first turn and made the winning move stick on the backstretch of the 1.5-mile track. Crafton, whose winless streak stretched to 30 races, settled for second for the third time in the last four races at Las Vegas.
Joey Coulter, who made a bold, three-wide move to lead the final pit stop, settled for third. Brendan Gaughan took fourth and Todd Bodine rallied from a first-lap spin to finish fifth.
Ty Dillon finished 10th to keep his lead in the standings by one point over James Buescher, who wound up sixth. Timothy Peters finished eighth and ranks third, 24 points off the top.
