BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) -- Brett Moffitt passed Timothy Peters and William Byron on the final lap to win the NASCAR Truck Series race at Michigan International Speedway on Saturday.

Peters was two laps away from what would have been his first victory of the season, but Byron nosed ahead with a lap to go, and Moffitt was then able to move to the outside and take over the lead.

Moffitt, the Sprint Cup rookie of the year last season, was making his fourth Trucks start this year in the No. 11 Toyota. His victory denied Peters a win that could have solidified a spot in the season-ending Chase.

Peters did finish second, giving Red Horse Racing a 1-2 showing. Daniel Hemric was third and Byron finished fourth.
