Kyle Busch wins truck race at Kentucky

Posted Thursday, June 26th 2014 @ 10pm

Nobody’s perfect – except Kyle Busch.

Busch has started five NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races this year and after Thursday night’s UNOH 225 at Kentucky Speedway, he has also won all five of those starts.

Busch won from the pole, leading 91 laps to win the sixth race overall for Kyle Busch Motorsports on the Truck series this season (teammate Darrell Wallace Jr. won the other one, two weeks ago at Gateway Motorsports Park in suburban St. Louis).

Busch has now won 40 NCWTS races in 120 starts, and Thursday’s win actually makes it six triumphs in a row, dating back to the 2013 season-ending race at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Wallace started and finished second, the first time a Kyle Busch Motorsports has started on the front row and finished together.

Busch had a nearly four-second lead before the caution flag fell with 12 laps left when Caleb Holman lost power, perhaps for running out of fuel.

On the ensuing restart, Wallace tried to challenge his boss for the first few laps before Busch pulled away and never looked back.

Ryan Blaney had a strong run and finished third, followed by Timothy Peters and Sprint Cup regular Brad Keselowski.

Sixth through 10th were Mat Crafton, Austin Dillon, Ron Hornaday Jr., Johnny Sauter and Ben Kennedy.
