BRISTOL, Tenn. — Johnny Sauter snagged his fifth career win of the season and emerged Bristol Motor Speedway victorious in the UNOH 200. Sauter was also awarded with the regular season championship.

Sauter led the final 5 laps after swiping the lead from John Hunter Nemechek. Stewart Friessen was the runner-up for the third time this season.

Nemechek, who won both Stages and led the most laps at 104, experienced an issue while leading. He would go on to finish in the third position. Parker Kligerman finished fourth, followed by Todd Gilliland in fifth.

The Camping World Truck Series heads north of the border to the Canadian Tire Motorsports Park next Sunday, August 26th (FS1, 2:30 p.m. EDT).
