Harvick wins Phoenix Truck race

In fact, Almirola passed Busch for the lead on lap 44 and stretched his advantage to 3.3 seconds by lap 65. Harvick was running third by then, having changed tyres on lap 35, under caution for Brad Sweet's spin in turn three.

Hornaday drew a penalty for improper fueling under caution on lap 35, when the fuel-filler can was inserted into the receptacle on the car before the catch can was in place. Faced with restarting from the rear of the field, Hornaday returned to pit road for tyres and gradually worked his way through the field.

By lap 81, Hornaday was twelfth, seven positions behind Crafton, who had not stopped for tyres. Hornaday passed Crafton in the pits on lap 92 - under caution called when Wheeler Boys slowed on the backstretch - after Crafton was forced to retrieve a dropped lug nut.

Hornaday restarted seventh on lap 96 and quickly gained two positions, while Crafton remained mired in ninth place until he slipped past David Starr for eighth on lap 107.
