The Camping World Truck Series made its stop in Kentucky for a Thursday night showdown. With this being a NASCAR triple weekend, this race had a few cup regulars in the driver’s seat including Brad Keselowski, Austin Dillon, and Kyle Busch.
The UNOH 250 had Kyle Busch starting on the pole with teammate Bubba Wallace next to him on the front row. And on the first lap Wallace took the lead from Busch and a caution came out for debris as John Wes Townley got into the wall in a backup truck. But in actuality the debris was from Matt Crafton’s ride.
The race continues with Busch and Wallace leading and Townley into the wall again and another caution. This time Keselowski stays out due to earlier pit strategy and we restart with him and Max Gresham on the first row. Could this be the call that nets Keselowski his first truck victory?
With Keselowski still leading and Busch on his tail, our next caution is caused by Jeb Burton getting into the wall. And everyone comes down pit road for what is the last pit stop of the night. The race gets set to green once again however Keselowski has to restart at the back of the field as he had a wrench sticking out of the back of his truck as he left pit road.
Once again Busch was on point with Ryan Blaney next to him. And once again Busch gets himself a nice, comfortable lead. That is until a late race caution comes out and bunches up the field for the final 8 laps. It’s Busch and Blaney again that lead us to the green flag. But as they take the first turn Wallace makes a furious push to pass Busch for the lead. But it’s not meant to be as Busch pulls out to an insurmountable lead.
And we finish how we started, with Kyle Busch winning and Bubba Wallace second. Rounding out the top 5 are Ryan Blaney, Timothy Peters and Keselowski, who clawed his way back after his pit road penalty.
