NEWTON, Iowa (AP) Ross Chastain cruised to a win in the rain-delayed NASCAR Truck Series race on Sunday at Iowa Speedway, his second victory of 2019.
Chastain led the final 141 laps to clinch his second win in four races - but his first since he switched his championship aspirations from the Xfinity Series to the trucks a few weeks ago.
Sunday's win will be the first one to count toward Chastain's playoff hopes, which improved greatly after a dominant run on Iowa's short oval. Chastain also moved within 14 points of 20th place in the standings, the bar drivers who've won a race need to clear for a postseason spot.
