BOWMANVILLE, Ontario (AP) -- Erik Jones won the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race Sunday at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park to take the series points lead. The 19-year-old Jones beat Canadian road racer Alex Tagliani to the first turn off a restart with two laps left on the 2.459-mile road course and easily held off two-time defending series champion Matt Crafton. Tagliani lost a gear and slipped to fifth. Jones raced to his second series victory of the year and fifth in 32 career starts. He also won at Iowa in June and has two Xfinity Series victories this year. The Kyle Busch Motorsports driver took a three-point lead over Crafton. Tyler Reddick, the leader entering the race, dropped to third -- 15 points back. He finished two laps down in 19th after running into the back of Gray Gaulding's truck with 10 laps left. Ben Kennedy was third, followed by Daniel Hemric, Tagliani, Johnny Sauter, Cameron Hayley, Spencer Gallagher, John Hunter Nemechek and Cole Custer.
