Busch wins truck series race Texas; Toyota clinches manufacturer’s title

Kyle Busch led three times for 80 of the 147 laps ran on Friday night and won the NASCAR Camping World Trucks Series WinStar World Casino 350K at Texas Motor Speedway.

“This Tundra was awesome tonight. Once I got out front, that last restart saved me. I can’t thank all the guys on this KBM team enough. They did an awesome job. It’s fun to be able to have the success we’ve had and hopefully we can continue to get some more for next year.” Busch said.  

This was the Busch’s seventh win for Busch at Texas Motor Speedway, making him the winningest driver at the track.   This was Busch’s 23rd career series victory and 7th win of the season in 14 starts. Busch could win the owner’s title with good finishes in the next two and final series races. Busch currently holds a 72 point lead over owner Steve Germain, No. 30 truck driven by Todd Bodine.

“The cool thing about it is it’s our first year and we’re in the running for it. We’ve got a great opportunity to go to Phoenix and to go to Homestead and score enough points to win this deal. We also can give it up, too. We’ve got to be careful in what we do and make sure the preparation is there.” Busch said.  

This race also clinched Toyota’s fifth consecutive manufacturer’s title.  

“To earn a fifth consecutive manufacturer’s championship is an accomplishment we are very proud of, and is a testament to the commitment Toyota has now and in the future to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and to our race teams participating in the series,” said Ed Laukes, Toyota’s corporate motorsports marketing manager. “We have been fortunate to partner ourselves with championship-caliber teams and exceptional drivers. Our Tundra teams continue to prove their excellence on the track.”  

“It’s an honor to be associated with Toyota and to be a part of five straight manufacturer’s championships,” says Bodine. “Over the last seven years, Toyota and Germain Racing have formed a great partnership and we constantly work together to improve our on-track performance each and every year.”   Johnny Sauter finished second, Matt Crafton third, Todd Bodine fourth and Elliott Sadler finished fifth.
