The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series heads to Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, Kentucky for the UNOH 225. One of the newer tracks, Kentucky Speedway was opened in 2000 and is a tri-oval, 1.5 mile layout that seats 66,000 racing fans. If this year is anything like last year, then those fans will be in for a real treat. Kyle Busch won an improbable 29th time, and third in a row, after missing the driver's meeting and starting from the back row. What followed was a set of wild and crazy circumstances leading him to the winners circle. Busch had been working his way up in the standings when Ron Hornaday and Cole Whitt hit the wall after a restart on lap 76 taking a number of trucks with them. Then with a restart on lap 83, Busch led the field with Johnny Sauter beside him. Sauter passed for the lead on lap 103, but a broken axle during a pit stop on lap 124 ended his chances. Nelson Piquet Jr. overshot his stall on a pit stop during the same round and when that cycle was compete, Busch held a two-truck-length lead over Austin Dillon. As Dillon was making a late charge, the hood of his truck came unpinned and covered the windshield to take him out of contention. When all was said and done, Busch took the title with Parker Kligerman hanging on for second. Tune in all summer long for top flight racing action with NASCAR's Camping World Truck Series.

Sometimes the best saves are the ones that go all but unnoticed.
That was the case two weeks ago at Pocono, where crew chief Brian Pattie's timely reaction saved a top-10 finish for driver Clint Bowyer.
The engine in Bowyer's No. 15 Toyota suffered the same issue that knocked fellow Camry driver Kyle Busch out of the race —- metal flaking that disrupted the oil flow...
