It was another dominate performance in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) for Kyle Busch at Kentucky Speedway, as Busch starts from the pole and finishes in victory lane Thursday night in the UNOH 225.
Busch, who led the most laps – 91 out of 150, received his fifth series win of the season, his fortieth series career win and his second series win at Kentucky Speedway. This also makes the 10th consecutive win for Toyota – the longest win streak by a manufacturer in the series.
Outside pole-sitter and fellow Kyle Busch Motorsports driver, Darrell Wallace, Jr., finished 1.844 seconds behind Busch, and they were followed by Ryan Blaney finishing third, Timothy Peters fourth and Brad Keselowski was fifth.
Rounding out the top-ten finishing positions were Matt Crafton claiming sixth-place, Austin Dillon seventh, Ron Hornaday, Jr. eighth, Johnny Sauter ninth and series Rookie of the Year (ROTY) candidate, Ben Kennedy finishing tenth.
Ninth-place finisher, Johnny Sauter, continues to lead the points and leaves Kentucky with a 8-point lead over his fellow ThorSport Racing teammate, Matt Crafton.
