MANSFIELD, Ohio (AP) Donny Lia became the first rookie in five years to win a Craftsman Truck Series race Saturday, using a last-lap pass to take the Ohio 250.
Lia got by leader David Starr in the second turn of the 0.5-mile oval. He, Starr and 2006 series champion Todd Bodine ran side-by-side down the backstretch before Lia pulled his Chevrolet ahead to edge Starr by 0.241 seconds for his first victory in his eighth series start.
Starr, who had his Toyota in front since the 80th lap, was bidding to end a 52-race winless streak that dates to 2006.
All but two drivers in the 36-truck field finished the race 29 of them on the lead lap.
