 FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Championship contender Ron Hornaday Jr. was knocked out of the NASCAR Truck Series race Friday night when Kyle Busch retaliated by pushing the four-time champion into the wall.
Only 15 laps into the race at Texas Motor Speedway, Hornaday and Busch made contact when trying to go three-wide around a slower truck. Both brushed the wall before the caution flag came out.
Busch then got behind Hornaday, and kept pushing until the No. 33 truck wound up in the wall. Busch's truck also was damaged heavily, and NASCAR parked him for the race with possibly more penalties to come afterward.
Hornaday, who started the race only 15 points behind points leader Austin Dillon, described the incident as ``just stupid'' and that Busch knew he was in the championship race.
