A year after picking up his first Camping World Truck Series victory at Martinsville Speedway, Darrell Wallace Jr. did it again, topping the Kroger 200 field on Saturday afternoon for his third victory of the season.

Wallace led a race-high 97 laps in his No. 34 Toyota Tundra, the number and paint scheme of which is honoring the late NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee Wendell Scott.

Pulling in behind Wallace was Toyota stablemate Timothy Peters for second place, followed by another two Toyotas in points leader Matt Crafton and teammate Erik Jones.Ryan Blaney rounded out the top five.

German Quiroga took the field four-wide with 13 laps to go looking for the lead, but wound up spinning coming around the corner. He finished 10th.

With 50 laps to go, the race was red-flagged after John Wes Townley and Brandon Jones got into each other on a restart. Wesley’s No. 05 ride hit the outside wall especially hard, ending his day. Jones’ No. 33 was also damaged beyond repair.

The series now heads to Texas Motor Speedway next weekend for Friday’s Winstar World Casino and Resort 350 (8:30 p.m. ET, FS1).
