Harvick wins the NCWTS WinStar World Casino 350K at Texas

Kevin Harvick led a race-high of 61 laps and won Friday night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) WinStar World Casino 350K race at Texas Motor Speedway. Harvick also captured the owner’s title for his No. 2 truck.

[media-credit name=”CIA Stock Photo” align=”alignright” width=”256″][/media-credit]“We’ve worked hard over the past several years to win as many races as we can. We’ve been fortunate to win some championships and have come up short on the manufacturers’ end of it. To be able to win the Owner’s Championship, win the race and win the Manufacturers’ Championship in the same night is pretty cool because Chevrolet has been a huge part of KHI (Kevin Harvick, Inc.) since the beginning. To go out and score a bunch of points this year and win the Owner’s Championship and the Manufacturers’ championship says a lot about everybody who’s involved and Chevrolet has been a huge part of providing the assets to make that happen.” Harvick said.

But the fireworks were between Kyle Busch and Ron Hornaday Jr.

Both drivers made contact while trying to pass a slower truck. They went 3-wide with Hornaday in the middle. They both made contact with the wall. Busch retaliated by pushing the No. 33 truck into the wall on just the 14th lap of the race.

NASCAR parked Busch for the race with more penalties possible. NASCAR did meet with both drivers after the race.

“This is just stupid! He knew I was there. He just drove me into the fence.” Hornaday said. “Let’s have at it, so I can go in there and beat him. He lives too close to me. We’ll see what NASCAR does. If they don’t handle it right, I’ll be at his house Monday morning.”

“I lost my cool, no doubt about it. I’ve been wrecked four weeks in a row, and I’ve had enough of it, and I retaliated,” Busch said.

Hornaday dropped to fourth in the series points standings, 48 behind Austin Dillon with only one race remaining.

“Well, if you consider Ron (Hornaday Jr.) was in the championship, maybe Ron could have played it a little smarter on lap 15 and checked up a little and given room to everybody around. Obviously, if you make it a three-wide situation — I can’t go up in the dirt, you know?” Busch said. “So if I just lay over and give up everything for Ron Hornaday, that’s not Kyle Busch’s fashion. I’m out here to win a race just as much as anybody else is and when he races up on my inside, gets loose and takes me up to the fence, I ended up losing my cool.”

Dillon has to finish 16th or better at Homestand-Miami Speedway on Nov. 18 to win the series title.
