It was clear from early in the day when Kyle Busch dominated practice and then went on to claim pole position for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series night race at Charlotte Motor Speedway that it was going to take something special to prise him out of victory lane by the end of the night.

That didn't happen, and instead the rest of the field was given a masterclass in driving by the 29-year-old Las Vegan as he led for 130 of the 134 laps of the North Carolina Education Lottery 200 on his way to picking up his 38th victory in 118 Truck starts - a winning percentage of 32.2 - and his third win of the season. That's a perfect record, as he's only entered three of the four races so far in 2014 after skipping Martinsville. It's the sixth time he's won in the series on the 1.5-mile Charlotte oval.

"It was a fun race for us. We were really strong, especially on the long runs; it seems guys would fall off," said Busch, who was driving for the Truck team that he owns and operates in the series, Kyle Busch Motorsports, which has won five of the last six races. "Can't say enough for these guys in the effort that they put in.

"We certainly had a dominant piece," he admitted. "We were just really, really strong, especially on the long runs. I beat 'em a little bit here or there, but it seemed like in traffic, I didn't lose as much as most of the other guys."

The only concern for Busch was something happening to the truck during the race: "Some of those cautions left us with a lot of debris, and you are never sure if you're going to get a flat tyre," he noted.

Kyle Busch started on pole alongside Matt Crafton, who was nearly as consistent upfront all night as Busch was one step ahead of him, the pair recording their second consecutive 1-2 after last week at Kansas yielded the same result. "I'm getting tired of it [coming second to Busch] but my guys did a great job tonight. We had enough fuel to get the track position back and I thought I could run with him but it got real tight. But like I said, it was a great race."

"I think Kyle is probably in a class of his own," conceded Brad Keselowski, who came across the line in third place ahead of John Wes Townley, Timothy Peters and Johnny Sauter. "It would have been a great race if Kyle wasn't here."

The only laps Busch was out of position was after a round of pit stops on lap 88 when Joe Nemechek briefly stayed out to lead; otherwise there was simply no matching Busch in a night that saw a lot of contenders crash out, in a race that saw 47 laps run under nine different cautions.

The first yellow was on lap 20 when Justin Jennings hit the wall with a flat tyre, and the next was on lap 29 when Ryan Ellis and Jake Crum got loose. Tyler Young blew and engine on lap 68 and Ron Hornaday Jr. spun out onto the grass on lap 73. Crum got some reprisal in on Ellis for their earlier incident to bring out the fifth caution on lap 86 when Ellis spun out into the wall after contact between the two.

The next yellow on lap 93 started with contact between Darrell Wallace Jr an Scott Riggs which sent Wallace hard into the wall in the second KBM truck and also left Tayler Malsam with some damage, while the next caution on lap 105 was triggered by John Wes Townley making contact with Ryan Blaney: that sent the latter man into the grass and then back across the track to collect Brian Ickler against the outside wall, setting the #7 on fire with broken fuel lines.

"We had a run on the #5 and I was inside the #5 and he just pushed me in the dirt," Blaney complained afterwards. "We were side-by-side for a long time and he just turned dead left so not sure what he was thinking there. Felt like I had a truck to catch the #51 and the #88 and shit happens."

The penultimate caution on lap 114 saw Hornaday hit the wall after getting turned across the nose of Turner Scott Motorsports teammate Ben Kennedy, with Mason Mingus and Crum also involved and sustaining damage. Hornaday took the blame for the multi-vehicle wreck, explaining: "I had a good run, and I thought I cleared Ben, and I didn't."

After that the race ran to the final lap, where it finished under a final yellow for Jeb Burton spun out of the top five through the in-field grass as he got together with German Quiroga as they raced around the lapped truck of Norm Benning. The incident happened after the white flag had been shown to Busch, meaning that the race ended then under caution.

In the championship standings, a strong second place for Matt Crafton means that he extends his lead to 11 points over Timothy Peters, with German Quiroga and Johnny Sauter close behind.
