Busch wins truck race at Texas

Fort Worth, TX (SportsNetwork.com) – Kyle Busch led 80 of 152 laps but had to
rally in the closing laps to win Friday night’s WinStar World Casino and
Resort 350 Camping World Truck Series race at Texas Motor Speedway.

After a late-race caution for an accident involving Tayler Malsam, John Wes
Townley and Justin Jennings, Busch gave up the lead when he pitted for four
tires. German Quiroga opted not to pit and took over the top spot. Busch ran
in ninth for the restart but quickly moved to the front and was attempting to
pass Quiroga for the lead before the sixth and final caution came for an
incident involving ThorSport Racing teammates Jeb Burton and Johnny Sauter.

The caution set up a green-white-checkered finish. Busch immediately passed
Quiroga for the lead following the last restart. On the final lap, Quiroga
spun out and backed it hard into the wall after his Red Horse Racing teammate,
Timothy Peters, bumped into him.

The race ended under caution, with Busch winning a Truck Series race at Texas
for the third time. He also claimed his seventh win of the season in the
series and the 42nd of his career.

Burton finished second, followed by Peters, Tyler Reddick, the pole sitter,
and Matt Crafton, the defending series champion and current points leader.
Quiroga ended up finishing 17th.

With two races to go — Phoenix next Friday and Homestead on Nov. 14 —
Crafton holds a 23-point lead over Ryan Blaney, who placed ninth.

Darrell Wallace Jr., who is Busch’s teammate and last weekend’s race winner at
Martinsville, suffered engine failure in the late going and finished 26th.
Wallace is now 43 points behind.
