CONCORD, N.C. (AP) – Johnny Sauter raced to his third NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victory of the season Friday night, winning for the first time in his career at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Sauter led a restart with 10 to go, quickly built a large lead and cruised to his 20th career victory. Brett Moffitt and Justin Haley were battling for second, but made contact that nearly sent Haley into the wall.

“We won at Charlotte!” Sauter said on the radio. “This is the biggest of my life.”

(AP Photo/Terry Renna) Sauter was the pole-setter based on owner points after the qualifying session was canceled due to rain. He led 71 of the 134 laps.

“This is a tough place,” Sauter said. “Everyone wants to win here. I never thought I’d win here. To win this race is just super special.

I never thought 40 (years old) would be so good. “This is the biggest race of my career, and I’ve won a lot of big races. We kept making adjustments on the truck all night and made it better and better.”

Sauter increased his series lead to 59 points over second-place Noah Gragson, who finished the race in eighth. Cup Series star Kyle Busch, who was slowed by a couple of pit-road penalties, finished second, 1.340 seconds back. Kyle Busch Motorsports teammate Brandon Jones was third, getting passed with a lap remaining.

Moffitt and Ben Rhodes rounded out the top five.

Moffitt picked up his first career stage win, and John Hunter Nemechek took the second stage.

There are grave fears for children after a truck dumped a load of asbestos at a children’s playground.

The truck was driving on Shakespeare Drive, St Clair, in Sydney’s west, and dumped the load of building waste just before 10pm on Thursday night.

Street footage shows the truck leaving about two minutes later with its tipper still raised and headlights switched off.

Local residents called police and fire crews to contain the asbestos.

This comes after twenty tonnes of asbestos was illegally dumped in a carpark in Strathfield South, on Monday.

In a twist of events, police had pulled over the driver before he dumped the waste.

Police gave the driver’s details to the Environment Protection Authority.

Regional Director of the Environment Protection Authority, Giselle Howard, told Seven News[2] that dumpers will not get away with this crime.

‘If dumpers think they will getaway with this crime, they won’t.

They will get caught,’ she said.

Fines for illegally dumping asbestos can reach £250,000 for individuals.

The playground is now closed indefinitely while it’s being monitored for airborne asbestos which could be harmful to anyone who comes near it.

Merging in busy traffic can be stressful at the best of times, but when both motorists wish to stand their ground it can become frightfully dangerous.

In this dashcam footage two vehicles are determined to not lose their space in a hectic lane but this leads to one truck trying to push a car off the road.

The video shows two rows of traffic driving at a steady speed before needing to merge into one lane.

With the truck picking up the pace in order to merge ahead of the smaller vehicle, the driver of the car decides it doesn’t want to let the motorist go in front.

The stubborn motorist starts to speed up hoping to force the truck behind.

Not wanting to slow down the determined truck veers to the left pushing the car towards the slip road.

It narrowly misses another car while the truck takes a spot in the designated lane.

Not happy from the near miss, the driver races forward and tries to slip back in front of the truck.

But this is futile and the grey car has to slow down and drive behind the larger vehicle

The clip was posted to Facebook with the caption: ‘Caught this earlier, road rage with two vehicles trying to merge.

‘Neither give way to one another and the van tries to ram the car off the road.

Excuse my language, I was shocked at what just happened.’

It is not clear when the footage was filmed but it is believed it was captured somewhere in the UK.
