LAS VEGAS (AP) - Timothy Peters raced to his second NASCAR Truck Series victory of the year and seventh overall Saturday night, pulling away on a late restart at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

           

Jennifer Jo Cobb forced the final caution, hitting the wall in the second turn on the 1½-mile track. Series victory leader Ron Hornaday had the lead on the restart with two laps to go, but quickly dropped to fifth and finished sixth.

           

Johnny Sauter was second, followed by Miguel Paludo, pole-sitter Ty Dillon and Darrell Wallace Jr.

           

Points leader Matt Crafton was 11th. With five races left, Crafton has a 41-point lead over James Buescher and 53-point advantage over third-place Dillon. Buescher was ninth in the race.

           

Peters also won at Iowa Speedway in July and has 10 top-10 finishes this year. He's sixth in the season standings, 85 points behind Crafton.

           

The 146-lap race was slowed by nine caution periods.
