Hornaday Extends Lead In NASCAR Truck Series Standings

sportslocalRon Hornaday Jr. finished fourth in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Martinsville Speedway in Virginia on Saturday and extended his lead in the Truck Series standings.

Hornaday leads second place Matt Crafton by 224 points with four races remaining in the Truck Series season.

Hornaday, driver of the No.33 Chevrolet Silverado for Kevin Harvick Inc., has won three Truck Series championships. It was his 13th top-five finish of the season.

 

Timothy Peters won the Truck Series race, the first of his career. Todd Bodine was second, followed by Colin Braun in third.

"That wasn't points racing today," Hornaday said. "Todd was a little slower right in the center. I went up after the race and told him I didn't mean to run in to him every time, just burned my brakes up behind Todd and Colin got by me. I am sure glad Colin ran in to the side of my door, it straightened me back up. Awesome day for the VFW Chevrolet. This is one hurdle we had to jump and we jumped it."
