Where they stand: Camping World Truck Series points after Martinsville

See also

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series completed only its second race of the season on Sunday at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway, with the running of the rain-delayed Kroger 250. Matt Crafton won the race that was originally scheduled for a Saturday afternoon start time. The next race on the schedule isn't until May 9 when the circuit visits Kansas Speedway.

Crafton is the only Truck Series regular to visit victory lane, so far, in the young 2014 season, as Sprint Cup regular Kyle Busch won the season opener at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway back in February. Despite being the lone championship-eligible race winner, Crafton isn't the championship points leader. Instead, that honor goes to Timothy Peters Crafton's ThorSport Racing teammate, Johnny Sauter.

Peters finished in the top-five at Daytona and was in the top-10 at Martinsville, enough to give him a total of 82 points, matching that of Sauter, who has two top-fives in two races. Crafton is four points behind them, with his win being his only top-10 finish in the first two races. Ryan Blaney is tied with Crafton, four points back, with two-race stats that include a top-five and two top-10s.

Ron Hornaday rounds out the top-five in the championship standings, another two points back.

Here is the top-10 after Martinsville (driver name, points behind leader):
1. Timothy Peters, leader
1. Johnny Sauter, leader
3. Matt Crafton, -4
3. Ryan Blaney, -4
5. Ron Hornaday, -6
6. Ben Kennedy, -10
7. German Quiroga, -11
8. Darrell Wallace Jr., -21
9. Jeb Burton, -22
9. Tyler Reddick, -22
