MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) -- Pole-sitter Kevin Harvick led all but two laps and won the spring NASCAR Truck Series race at Martinsville Speedway for the third time in the past four years Saturday.

The former truck team owner yielded the top spot to teammate Ty Dillon for the fourth and fifth laps, but left no doubt which truck was best in leading a series-record 248 laps.

Dillon, in his fourth start, ran second almost all day, but had to hold off James Buescher on a restart with six laps to go. He did that easily, and followed Harvick to a comfortable second-place finish.

There were seven cautions for 49 laps, but there was little drama.
