Kyle Busch played the role of Rambo at today’s Camping World Truck Series Race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Taking the Pole position this morning, Kyle Busch then dominated the field leading all but 10 of the 175 laps in the race. The only time Busch did not lead the race was during green flag pit stops.
Though Kevin Harvick started alongside of Kyle Busch, it was Austin Dillion in the 3 truck who was right behind the 18 truck most of the race and at the checker flag. Austin could get up to the rear of Kyle Busch and to the rear quarter panel, but could just not get alongside of the 18 truck or around it.
There were a few minor cautions in the race, but several strong drivers received speeding penalties like Joey Coulter who qualified 3rd and ended up well back in the field after running in the top 5 most of the day.
In the end, Kyle Busch simply too powerful a truck and driver for the rest of the field. In victory lane, Kyle gave the credit to his team and the truck for their success. While Kyle was being toasted in victory lane, however, his fellow drivers 2nd through 4th were telling how the 18 truck blew them all away and Kyle Busch did not even wear a headband. Can not wait till the cup race tomorrow.
