GLADEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Sprint Cup star Kyle Busch raced to his second NASCAR Trucks Series victory of the season, passing Ron Hornaday Jr. on a late restart and easily holding off Nelson Piquet Jr. on Friday night at Nashville Superspeedway.
Busch, also the Nashville winner last spring, led 140 of 150 laps on the 1.333-mile concrete oval. He also won the Trucks race in Phoenix in February and has 26 series victories in 89 starts. In addition to Busch's two victories, Kasey Kahne won the March race at Darlington in Busch's No. 18 Toyota.
Hornaday slipped in front of Busch in Turn 3 with nine laps to go. A caution for Max Papis' spin allowed Hornaday to stay in the lead for the restart with three laps to go. Hornaday opened a lead off the restart, but Busch rebounded quickly and nosed past Hornaday before they completed a lap.
Timothy Peters was third, followed by Hornaday and James Buescher.
