Colin Braun scored his first career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victory Saturday afternoon when he took the checkered flag in the Michigan 200 at Michigan International Speedway.

Braun got around Kyle Busch with 24 laps to go when the duo came up on the slower truck of Norm Benning. Once he went ahead he drove away to the victory which was the 50th NCWTS win for Roush Fenway Racing.

The victory came in Braun’s 35th career series start.

It was the second time in the last three races that a first time winner went to victory lane in teh truck series.

Two weeks ago Brian Scott notched his first career win at Dover International Speedway.

“It’s awesome to get that 50th Truck Series win for Jack Roush at Michigan,” said Braun, 2008 Truck Series Raybestos Rookie-of-the-Year. “Not only is Michigan Jack’s backyard, it’s Ford’s and our sponsor Con-way Freight’s backyards, as well. Just to get a win for them at Michigan, not to mention it being the 50th, is a dream come true.”

Roush was pleased to celebrate with his young diver and get a win for his manufacturer in the shadows of Detroit.

“It’s important for us to do well for Ford anytime and especially gratifying to do so right here at Michigan,” Roush said. “Colin is a good young driver and will be even better as he learns more as he goes along.”

Polesitter Brian Ickler followed the top two across the finish line with Matt Crafton and Mike Skinner rounding out the top five.

Tayler Malsam, Ron Hornaday, Timithy Peters, Dennis Setzer and Terry Cook completed the top ten finishers.

The race was slowed five times for caution for a total of twenty laps.

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series now heads to The Milwaukee Mile next Friday night.
