Kyle Busch Wins the UNOH 225 at Kentucky Speedway After Starting Last
Kyle Busch had to start tonight's Camping World Truck Series race from dead last after missing the driver's meeting and driver introductions, but that didn't stop Kyle from winning another Truck Series race. Busch was already up to 19th on the track by lap 7, and took the lead for the first time on lap 63. Early in the race Busch felt that he did not have a truck capable of winning, but he proved himself wrong when he held off late charges from Joey Coulter, Parker Kligerman and Elliott Sadler.
Elliott Sadler looked to have the truck to beat early in the race but he got caught a lap down when a caution came out right after he made a green flag pit stop. He had to take the wave-around to get back on the lead lap and never got back into the top five until there was about four laps to go.
Johnny Sauter also had a very strong truck tonight but he broke the rear axle while pitting under green with about 25 laps to go. He was leading at the time of the incident. Sauter came into tonight's race as the points leader, and will leave Kentucky tied for the lead.
Austin Dillon was closing in on Busch for the lead with 15 laps to go when his hood flew up in front of his windshield. He was still able to see around the hood, but could not continue under green with most of the windshield blocked. He had to pit to have the hood removed from the car, which effectively ended his chances at winning the race.
