DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) - Kasey Kahne made the right choice in giving up a week off, running up front the final 51 laps to win Camping World Truck series event at Darlington Raceway on Saturday night.
The Sprint Cup star could've powered down like his Cancun-bound truck owner Kyle Busch as NASCAR's top series took off. Instead, Kahne hopped into the No. 18 Toyota to win his second Darlington Trucks race in two starts.
Kahne held off defending series champ and Darlington winner Todd Bodine on a restart with three laps remaining.
Ron Hornaday Jr. finished second, and Bodine was third. Series points leader Matt Crafton took fourth and James Buuescher finished fifth.
Kahne has three victories and a second in four career Trucks starts.
