CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Kyle Busch snapped a seven-race drought on the NASCAR Truck Series by winning Friday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Busch dominated the early, but had to overcome a penalty that sent him to the back of the pack midway through the race. However, he battled back from 19th place in the No. 51 Toyota for his first Truck victory since since Sept. 24, 2011, at Loudon, N.H.
The 28-year-old Busch took the lead for good on lap 123 after a four-car wreck brought out the caution flag and held on for his 31st career Truck Series win, fifth at Charlotte and 112th win in NASCAR's top three series.
Brendan Gaughan finished second, and Max Gresham had his best finish ever, taking third. Series points leader Matt Crafton was fourth, followed by Ty Dillon.
