MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) - Ron Hornaday Jr. passed Kyle Busch with three laps to go and then held him off in overtime to win a NASCAR Truck race at Martinsville Speedway on Saturday.
The victory was the first for the four-time Truck series champion in 17 career starts on the 0.526-mile oval, and left him with tears in his eyes when he climbed from his truck.
Busch held on for second. Points leader Todd Bodine finished third, racing hours after the death of his mother.
Bodine led for most of the second half of the race before Busch and Hornaday got by him with 25 laps remaining. Bodine was never able to get back in the mix, even through three restarts - the last a 2-lap dash in overtime.
