It was the Kyle and Kevin show most of the day during TheRaceDayRaffleSeries.com 175, but it was Kyle Busch who took the checkered flag for the second straight year in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
“It wasn’t an easy win,” said Busch. “It was a tough hard fought battle and it took us a little while to get there. With 15 laps to go it got ugly. I got to put a left rear quarter panel on the truck because he [Kevin Harvick] was racing me so hard, in the end you got to do what you got to do to win these races and it’s really neat to get the Toyota truck to victory lane.”
TheRaceDayRaffleSeries.com 175 was Kyle’s 21st victory in 80 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races. It was also his 80th NASCAR victory in all three top series.
Camping World Truck Series regular James Buescher took advantage of the side-by-side racing that Busch and Harvick provided for most of the afternoon, but lost the lead after a late-race caution and wound up second. Buescher posted his first top-10 finish in five races at “The Magic Mile,” behind the wheel of his No. 31 Wolf Pack Rentals Chevrolet.
After battling Busch for the entire race, Kevin Harvick driver of the No. 2 JEGS.com Chevrolet ended up third notching his fourth top-10 finish in five races at NHMS.
Todd Bodine will leave New Hampshire Motor Speedway leading the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series points standings 257 points over Aric Almirola.
