Chase Elliott sprinted away from the field after a restart with 12 laps to go to easily win Saturday’s Camping World Truck Series race at Martinsville Speedway.

Defending Series champion Johnny Sauter finished second, 1.865 seconds back.

“It was fun today,” Elliott said.

“It was a hard-fought battle, for sure.”

Elliott’s big move after the restart was a block he put on Sauter.

“Chase did what he needed to do with the old block,” Sauter said.

“I saw him coming in the mirror with a big run, and I knew I had to block him,” Elliott said. “Fortunately, it worked out.”

Christopher Bell led a race-high 96 laps, 90 in the final 110-lap stage. He finished third.
