If history truly does repeat itself, then Johnny Sauter is in prime position to finish the 2014 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) season on a high note.

The Nextant Aerospace/Curb Records driver has made seven NCWTS starts at Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway since 2003, amassing one win (2011), two top-five and four top-10 finishes. In a season that's been highlighted with highs and lows, the ThorSport Racing driver would like nothing more than to capitalize on his south Florida success and finish his sixth full-time season on a high note by revisiting victory lane on Friday night.-ThorSport Racing

In only five NCWTS starts at the one-mile Phoenix tri-oval, Johnny Sauter has one pole (2009), has led 11 laps (2009) and produced three top-five and four top-10 finishes.

After two strong runs in the series last two stops at Martinsville and Texas, in which the ThorSport Racing driver didn't have the finishes to back it up, Sauter couldn't think of a better place to get back on track and into victory lane than Friday night's 150-lap event at PIR. A win this week would be a great tribute to Sauter's dad, Jim, who passed away last week at the age of 71. Jim, a former NASCAR driver, made two career Sprint Cup Series starts at Phoenix (1988, and 1999) and earned a career-best fifth starting position in the 1988 event in the desert.-ThorSport Racing
