Dion wins Sport Truck Triple Crown!
Scott Dion picked up his first win of the 2013 season, holding off some hard charges from Rick Martin, Rob Murphy, and finally points leader John Paiva, clinching the Phil’s Propane Triple Crown Championship for the Sport Trucks.
Dion jumped out front from his front row starting position, with Murphy in tow. Murphy held on to second until the half-way point when Martin finally squeezed through for second. A lap 17 caution put Martin aside Dion, and it appeared that the 5 time champion would be on the way to his second win in a row, edging Dion out front for a pair of laps, but it wasn’t to be, as Dion powered back past.
One final caution with five laps remaining put Paiva on the outside, and he also was able to edge Dion for a pair of laps, but it wasn’t enough to overtake the Taunton driver, as Scott held on for the Triple Crown win.
