Busch wins big in the Trucks at Texas

Kyle Busch, who piloted the No. 7 Chevy Silverado Friday night in the SpeedyCash.com 250, won his 66th race in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, and his 20th win at Texas Motor Speedway. 

“It got a little dicey there,” Busch stated in the media center after his win. “Corey (Heim) had been making that move for the last couple of restarts on whoever he was behind, and I kind of thought to myself and was like, ‘I don’t think he’s going to do it to me’ (referring to Heim making it three wide into turn one on the final restart). He did, so don’t think anybody’s going to cut you any slack because of what your name is. So, certainly, we ran hard though. 

“That kind of worried me though with that situation, because it lost us the opportunity to control the race on the restart for the next one. We were able to fight hard as well as work through the next restart to get around the No. 19 (Eckes) and was able to make a good move into turn one. I thought I’d be able to gap away like I had all night long and be able to build the gap, but that was just over the course of more laps and we just didn’t have enough laps to be able to stretch out.”

The 2024 SpeedyCash.com 250 at Texas Motor Speedway had four different leaders throughout the 167 lap event with seven different lead changes, as well as seven cautions to make the event 2:09:35 hours long. 

The next race the NASCAR Craftsman Trucks Series will compete in is the Heart of America 200 at Kansas Speedway, on Saturday night, May 4th. That race will be carried live by FS1, MRN, and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.
