SPARTA, Ky. (AP) - Kyle Busch picked up his fifth NASCAR Camping World Truck Series win on Thursday night, roaring from the back row to win the 225-mile race at Kentucky Speedway.
The NASCAR star was ordered to the rear of the field at the start of the race for missing driver introductions, but had little trouble picking his way through traffic. He held off Parker Kligerman during a green-white-checkered finish to win by 0.302 seconds.
Brendan Gaughan was third, followed by Todd Bodine and Jason White.
Busch celebrated his 29th win in the series by doing a lengthy burnout before grabbing the checkered flag.
Points leader Johnny Sauter dominated long stretches of the 150-lap race but went to the garage with less than 25 laps remaining after his truck broke its rear axle.
