BROOKLYN, Mich. — Defending champion James Buescher raced to his first NASCAR Truck Series victory of the season Saturday, passing Kyle Busch to take the lead with three laps remaining at Michigan International Speedway.

Busch led out of a restart with six laps to go in the 200-mile, 100-lap race.

Brendan Gaughan was pressuring Busch at the front when Buescher was able to pass to the inside of both.

Buescher, the Trucks Series champion last year, hadn’t finished higher  than third this season.
