Kyle Busch Wins Careers for Veterans 200 at Michigan International Speedway
Kyle Busch hasn’t started in all of the 2015 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races, but he’s undefeated in his only two starts. Busch came back from a pit road penalty early in the race, to go on and win the Careers for Veterans 200 at Michigan International Speedway.
Busch led for a total of 44 laps on Saturday and took the lead for a final time on Lap 97, edging out Ryan Blaney.
Blaney finished second followed by Erik Jones, Johnny Sauter and Austin Dillon.
The win at Michigan is Busch’s first Truck Series win and the first win at the track for Kyle Busch Motorsports.
“First win for me, first win for KBM here,” said Busch after the race.
Although it is Busch’s first Truck Series win at Michigan, he had won at the track previously in the XFINITY Series and Sprint Cup Series.
“Just cool to finally get that monkey off my back here in the Truck Series and notch another race track where I’ve won in all three divisions here at Michigan,” said Busch.
Heading out of Michigan, Tyler Reddick remains with the points lead. Matt Crafton remains in second followed by Erik Jones in third.
Crafton -- who finished the race in sixth—managed to come back with a top 10 finish after receiving a pit road penalty, battling a bucking windshield and a late race spin after contact with John Wes Townley.
The next race for the Truck Series will be on Wednesday night at Bristol Motor Speedway.
