Congrats to Austin Dillion for winning the 2011 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Championship.

(Photo Credit: RCR via Email) Note: I replaced the previous photo of the entire field coming to the green with this championship photo. The previous photo was the only one I could find last night when I was writing on Dillion winning the championship. And this photo is perfect for this article.

That’s all she wrote, the Ford 200 at Homestead-Miami Speedway was called due to rain and even though Johnny Sauter did everything he could by leading the most laps and winning the race. Austin Dillion (who was 10th) has just won his first Camping World Truck Series Championship. That is cool to see, he deserves it.

But I do have to give it to Johnny Sauter, he did do everything he could to win the championship today and he was even holding off the hard charging Cup Series drivers of Denny Hamlin and Kevin Harvick. And also good job to James Bouescher as well, he was in the hunt.

* Austin Dillion wins the 2011 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Drivers Championship by 6 points.

* Joey Coulter wins the 2011 Rookie of the Year in the Truck Series.

* The #2 Kevin Harvick Inc. wins the 2011 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Owners Championship. BTW: This truck wll now be owned by RCR, but what a good 10 years for KHI.

What a good season in the Truck Series and I can’t wait until next season.
