Associated Press
LOUDON, N.H. ó Ron Hornaday Jr. put aside the questions and distractions from his admission of testosterone use, got in his No. 33 Chevrolet and did what he does best: go out and dominate a trucks race.
Hornaday took the lead on a restart with 42 laps to go and was out front most of the way en route to a victory Saturday in the Craftsman Truck Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
“I’ve got to thank all the race fans. They are so unbelievable (with) the support they’ve given me this week,” Hornaday said.
Hornaday, who has a record 38 career truck victories, told ESPN The Magazine earlier this week that he used a testosterone cream during 2004 and 2005 to treat a medical issue. NASCAR met with the reigning series champion on Friday and found no reason to punish Hornaday for the admission.
