Busch wins at truck series race Chicagoland

Kyle Busch held off two late challenges for the lead from Todd Bodine and won Friday night’s Camping World Truck Series race at Chicagoland Speedway.

After coming off a remarkable weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway, where he swept all three races, he continued winning even during the rare Sprint Cup off-weekend.   Busch led three times for 121 (of 154) laps en route to his fifth victory of the season, the second straight truck series race and the 20th of his career.  

Bodine finished second, Ron Hornaday Jr. third, Johnny Sauter fourth and Justin Lofton finished fifth.

“It was really fun out there tonight. This Toyota Tundra was awesome tonight. It was so fun racing Todd (Bodine) like that. He had enough to hang with us, he just didn’t have enough to get by us there.” Busch said.  

Bodine holds a 236-point lead in the series standings over Aric Almirola, who finished in sixth place.  

“It was good racing with him (Busch). It’s fun to race with a guy you can trust. Of course, he was having to trust me because I was one the behind. It was a good night. I can’t complain.” Bodine said.  

“I built the points lead back up to where it was before Bristol.   Another good run. You hate to run second, especially to Kyle (Busch), but we’ll take it and we’ll go to the next one.” Bodine said.
