NCWTS: Busch Wins Race, Crafton Claims First NASCAR Championship

Kyle Busch drove to a victory tonight at the Homestead-Miami Speedway after holding onto the lead in three G-W-C attempts to finish the final race of the 2013 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season. He led a total of 62 of the 148 laps that made up the total distance in the wild action packed race. Tonight was Kyle’s fifth win of the season for his ninth top-10 finish to go on and capture the owner points championship by tying Rhonda Thorson with the No. 88.

Ryan Blaney posted a second place finish to earn the 2013 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Sunoco Rookie of the Year award. He became the youngest driver to win that title. Blaney led a total of 67 laps this evening to lead the most laps of the event tonight. He finished out the year earning one win, eight top-fives, 13 top-10s and two poles.

Jeb Burton came home in the third spot this evening after an up and down run all race long. Jeb will finish out the year earning one win, five top-fives, 11 top-10s, and seven poles.

Matt Crafton seals his first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship after earning one win, seven top-fives and 19 top-10s this year. Though, Crafton did not get the finish he wanted this evening after he was involved in a wreck late in the race to finish in the 21st position to lose the owner championship. Crafton did go on to complete 100% of the total laps this year.

Next race for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will be in late February of 2014 at Daytona International Speedway.
