Riggs races to truck victory

August 11, 2001


— Scott Riggs raced to his fourth NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series of the season Friday night, leading 131 of 150 laps in the Federated Auto Parts 200.

Riggs, who led the inaugural truck race at Nashville Superspeedway by nine seconds after his final pit stop, saw his margin over teammate Ted Musgrave shrink to a half-dozen truck lengths at the checkered flag.

The winner's Dodge averaged 132.466 mph as just two caution flags none after the 34th lap slowed the pace. The victory was worth $44,635 plus a $10,000 bonus from sponsor Craftsman for winning from the pole position.

Musgrave spent extra time on pit road while his crew made a chassis adjustment.
