Sauter said “It’s not just me, it’s the whole team, everybody at GMS Racing. “We qualified bad today, and really, I was kind of worried about it. But it felt pretty good in race trim.” “To be a champion, five years ago my old man was down here when I won the race. This is for him and for Joe Shear’s dad great Midwest racers. My family’s here, my kids are here, my wife’s here. It’s just an awesome night. Proud to be champion, and we’ll do everything within our power to represent NASCAR and Camping World as best we can.”
