Truckin’ Thursdays: Memorable Series Moments Part II

Once again this weekend, the Camping World Truck Series sits idle while the Nationwide and Cup series head off to Daytona International Speedway for the 4th of July weekend. With little in the way of news other than Kyle Larson’s announcement that he’ll be running Eldora (who didn’t see that one coming?) and Kyle Busch’s slap on the wrist for his truck being too low following Kentucky Speedway last Thursday, it’s a great time to take a look at more ...

Tracking the Trucks: UNOH 225

Tracking the Trucks: UNOH 225

In a Nutshell: A caution with 12 laps to go couldn’t stop Kyle Busch in route to victory lane as Busch dominated the UNOH 225 at Kentucky Speedway en route to victory. It marks Busch’s fifth victory this season in five NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts this season so far.
