Truck Series - Dover - Race results

Kyle Busch set himself on the path for another go at a NASCAR weekend triple crown with victory in the Trucks, but he was hard-pressed to see off the threat of impressive rookie Cole Whitt.
Kyle Busch claimed victory in the Lucas Oil 200 Camping World Truck Series on the Monster Mile at Dover, but had a hard battle with rookie Cole Whitt on the way - which earned Kyle's respect.

"Cole Whitt did a really nice job," Busch said. "I think he's got something going on over there ... He's fast. He's quick week in and week out, and this is the first one he's really contended for, that I've been in, anyway."

Whitt was denied a final chance to battle Busch when the race ended under caution after Nelson Piquet Jr. wrecked with Timothy Peters on the last lap.

Busch had expected his main threat to come from Kevin Harvick, who was a late entry in the race and threatened to reignite the conflict between the two started at last week's Darlington Sprint Cup race. The two battled for the lead at a restart on lap 81 without incident, but a subsequent pit lane speeding penalty for Harvick separated them for the rest of the night and Harvick finished in fifth place.

Busch's victory makes him the first driver to win the Truck race at Dover twice. It's his 27th victory in the Truck Series in his 90th start.

Former F1 world champion Kimi Raikkonen makes his Truck Series debut for Kyle Busch Motorsports next week at Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 20.
