Truck Series - Charlotte - Race results

21 May 2011

One way or another, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway was all about Kyle Busch this week. If it wasn't his own race performance capturing fans' attention, it was the second driver in the Kyle Busch Motorsports team - former F1 world champion Kimi Raikkonen.

Kyle inadvertently played a critical role in helping Raikkonen finish on the lead lap in a very creditable 15th place. Raikkonen had missed a call to come into the pits under an early caution and looked resigned to a green flag pit stop when his team boss spun the #18 and brought out a highly fortuitous yellow at just the right time.

Kyle went on to time a charge for the lead to perfection, forcing his way past Clint Bowyer on lap 128 six laps before the end. Kimi also made the most of his lucky break and kept the car running to the chequered flag despite a couple of hits against the wall and a truck spinning in front of him.
