HAMPTON, Ga. (AP) - Ron Hornaday Jr. raced to his record 49th NASCAR Truck Series victory, pulling it out on pit strategy after Clint Bowyer led much of the race Friday night at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Bowyer and Kyle Busch were the only drivers to lead until the last round of stops brought the leaders onto pit road for fuel and tires.
Hornaday stayed out, knowing he had enough fuel to make it and hoping his worn-out tires would hold out. They did, even though Bowyer was knocking off nearly 2 seconds a lap.
Hornaday won by 1.596 seconds over Bowyer, while Busch settled for third.
