Kyle Busch makes it two in a row at Chicagoland Speedway
Friday night the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series would take center stage at Chicagoland Speedway.
Friday afternoon during qualifying Todd Bodine earned the pole and would be looking to pad his points lead.
Early on it was Bodine, Austin Dillon and Kyle Busch pulling the field but early on it was Matt Crafton who worked his way from 18th to ninth in five laps.
Dillon took the lead by lap five and Busch followed Dillon for second.
Busch then took the lead from Dillon while they were battling lapped traffic. Dillon settled in second and the consensus was very tight conditions early on.
Busch would pace the field until lap 31, Shelby Howard in the No. 2 truck would slow on the track after running in the top 10 early in the race.
Busch would lead the field to green on the restart but it was Dillon who lost the most on pit road. He slid through his pits and was forced to back up.
He would restart seventh and would have to battle his way back to the front.
Ron Hornday who would restart fifth would rocket to second and try to run down Busch.
Caution waved on lap 79, when the No. 47 engine blew. This caution was right outside the fuel window. The leaders would hit pit road for fuel, tires and adjustments.
Busch had a slow stop that would cost him the lead. He would restart fifth; meanwhile Bodine would take the lead with Hornaday in second.
Hornaday took the lead on the restart but Ricky Carmichael, Jr. would have his engine blow up and the caution waved once again.
On the next restart, Hornaday could pull away and Bodine took advantage of a loose Hornaday and took the lead back.
Busch who would restart fourth would take back the lead on lap 98. The teams would begin to set up for the final pit stop. Would it be two tires? Fuel only? Would it be under green?
All those questions would be unanswered as caution waved for James Buescher. The field hit pit road with Hornaday taking two tires, Busch took four and others taking fuel only. This would be setting up for a interesting dash for the finish.
Busch would take the lead back with 19 laps to go and Bodine would try to reel in Bodine. With three laps to go Timothy Peters would lose an engine and would send the race to green, white checkered finish.
Busch and Bodine would line up side by side with Johnny Sauter in third.
Busch and Bodine would pull away from Sauter and Hornaday. Bodine was unable to run down Busch who in the end would win his second straight CWTS race at Chicagoland.
The rest of the top 10 were Bodine, Hornaday, Sauter, Justin Lofton, Aric Almirola, Matt Crafton, Rick Crawford, Dillon and David Starr.
Next week the series heads to Kentucky Speedway on Friday night at 7:30 ET on SPEED.
