Kyle "Rowdy" Busch held off a fierce late-race challenge from Ron Hornaday, Jr. to win Friday night's Bully Hill Vineyards NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Nashville Superspeedway.
Hornaday, Jr., known as the restart king, passed Busch on a restart with nine laps remaining. Busch had dominated the race until that point leading 140 of the 150-lap event.
The four-time NASCAR Truck Series champion led the field to the green on the final restart with three laps to go after Max Papis brought out the last caution of the night. Busch pulled to the inside of Hornaday, Jr. as they entered turn one and completed the pass for the lead on the exit of turn four. Busch held on the final two laps as Hornaday, Jr. fell to fourth with handling problems on the KHI Silverado.
"That old man still gets after it," Busch said of Hornaday, Jr.
Hornaday, Jr. was disappointed with the outcome. "We gave that one away," said Hornaday.
Nelson Piquet, Jr. finished second followed by Timothy Peters, Hornaday and James Buescher.
Johnny Sauter retains the Truck Series point lead with five races completed. The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series return to action in the Lucas Oil 200 at Dover on Saturday, May 13, 2011.
