NASCAR Trucks: Hornaday wins fifth straight
GLADEVILLE, Tenn. ó Ron Hornaday Jr. raced to his record fifth straight NASCAR Camping World Trucks victory, easily holding off Brian Scott in a green-white-checker finish Saturday night at Nashville Superspeedway.
“Five! Can you believe that?” the 51-year-old Hornaday said.
The Kevin Harvick Inc. driver has six wins this year to push his series-record total to 44. He also has a record three season titles.
Rick Ren also set a series record for victories by a crew chief with 27. He broke the record he shared with Dennis Connor.
Hornaday passed first-time pole-sitter Timothy Peters on the 34th lap of the 150-lap event on the 1.333-mile oval, then dodged the rain the rest of the night.
Terry Cook spun and hit the wall in turn two with two laps to go, forcing the green-white-checker finish.
There were six caution period in the race. Rain forced a yellow from lap 102 to 105, but the storms held off long enough for Hornaday to claim the victory.
Colin Braun was third.
