first_imgIn a race that saw Playoff driver John Hunter Nemechek crash out after 37 laps because of a brake failure, Gragson held off Sauter during a 38-lap green-flag run that preceded the final caution. Though Sauter tattooed the rear bumper of the rookie throughout the run, Gragson held the position. RELATED: Nemechek exits Martinsville race early A good points day was little consolation to the driver of the No. 88 Toyota. “It just sucks to finish second,” Crafton said. “Just salt in the wound.” Harrison Burton ran fourth, scoring his first top five in the series 19 days after his 17th birthday. KBM teammate Todd Gilliland was fifth, followed by Stewart Friesen and Kaz Grala. Playoff drivers Christopher Bell, Ben Rhodes and Austin Cindric were eighth, ninth and 10th, respectively. “We got that caution there at the end, and you can’t pass on the outside in Martinsville – and I did it,” Gragson said. “To be racing here in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, it’s a privilege, and all those hours of hard work… The Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender frustrated Playoff competitors Crafton and Johnny Sauter, who finished second and third behind him. After talking the checkered flag, Gragson parked his No. 51 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota near the flag stand and climbed to the top of the frontstretch catchfence in celebration. “Those last like 40 laps with Johnny Sauter being off my back bumper, he did that earlier to us in the spring, and I wasn’t going to let him pass me again like that,” Gragson said. RELATED: Results | Series standings | Playoff standings | Detailed breakdownMARTINSVILLE, Va. – Blowing around two-time NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion Matt Crafton after a restart with 10 laps left, 19-year-old Noah Gragson scored his first victory in Saturday’s Texas Roadhouse 200 at Martinsville Speedway. The Las Vegas native pulled away to win by 1.486 seconds.center_img “I knew to myself this morning, I knew I could get it done. I’ve known it this whole year, and I told myself I’m going to get that trophy today, and that’s what we did.” That proved decisive, as it put Gragson on the front row for the final restart. Though the bottom at Martinsville historically has been the preferred lane for a restart, Crafton had his doubts as he came to the green flag on Lap 191. After Bayley Currey spun in his No. 50 Chevrolet to bring out the final caution on Lap 182, Crafton, then the race leader, chose the inside lane for the restart on Lap 191. But Gragson got a perfect drive through Turns 1 and 2, pulled ahead of Crafton on the backstretch and cleared him off Turn 4. Crafton won the first 50-lap stage of the race and Sauter the second stage as both drivers chipped away at Bell’s series lead, which stands at three points over Sauter and 15 over Crafton with two races left in the Playoffs Round of 6. “I told (crew chief) Junior (Joiner) I might be crazy, but I thought the top was going to be the place to go on the restart,” Crafton said. “There was no rubber up there where the right-side tires were. I knew we were going to have our hands full… “He had a perfect restart there – and I sucked.” Rhodes currently holds the fourth and final Playoff transfer position, with Cindric in fifth 11 points back of Rhodes, and Nemechek in sixth trailing Rhodes by 32 points after his 30th-place finish on Saturday.last_img read more

first_imgVermont Business Magazine On Wednesday, the Green Mountain Care Board (GMCB) voted to approve the experimental all-payer waiver agreement. Gov. Shumlin will sign the All-Payer Model (APM) into law on Thursday, once again overhauling the state’s healthcare system. Expressing a lack of confidence in the Shumlin Administration, House Republican Leader Don Turner asked GMCB Chair Al Gobeille to provide a letter before the vote, assuring that the APM complies with all the benchmarks (including the requirements for any Medicare waiver agreement made between Vermont and the federal government), as specified under Act 113 of Vermont law.Rep. Turner said, “I am disappointed that Mr. Gobeille chose not to honor the reasonable request to provide a written assurance. Given the gross mismanagement of healthcare reform projects over the past six years by the Shumlin Administration, and the numerous unanswered questions regarding the risks and outcomes of the All-Payer Model, I would have liked to see the head of the independent GMCB offer a measure of certainty to Vermonters, at the very least.”“I find the haste with which the Shumlin Administration has sought to enact APM, coupled with the glaring lack of civic participation and media coverage leading to the GMCB vote today, deeply regrettable,” Rep. Turner added.“Robust democracy requires that those in power not shirk the heavy lifting of persuasion and public dialogue. While elected officials are accountable to the voters, the same is not true for state appointed bureaucrats. To ensure that all future decision-making follows a more transparent and inclusive process, I call that we seriously consider the possibility of eliminating the Green Mountain Care Board, and reinstating the State Legislature’s authority in dealing with the healthcare needs of Vermonters,” Rep. Turner concluded.last_img read more
