Truck - Texas - Race results

Ron Hornaday Jr. won a dramatic and controversial finish to the Truck Series race at Texas Motor Speedway, when the points leader was blackflagged on the final lap.
Long-time Truck Series regular Ron Hornaday Jr. earned his 48th Truck Series win in his 284th start on Friday in the WinStar World Casino 400k, when Johnny Sauter was shown the black flag for changing lanes for the final green-white-chequered restart and was dramatically demoted to the back of the lead lap - putting him in 22nd place.

"Soon as the green dropped he turned in my lane, and I was yelling, 'He's in my lane!'" said Hornaday. He admitted: "At that time we had a second-place truck."

Series director Wayne Auton has specifically briefed drivers on this situation before the race: "He said, 'This is your last warning.' I think he said it three times," Hornaday said. "'You go into another guy's lane, better give it back before you get to Turn 1.' Sticky call. But you can't change lanes until you pass the start/finish line. And I hate that rule."

Todd Bodine wrecked on lap 68 with contact with David Starr in turn 2, while Matt Crafton hit the wall after getting spun by Austin Dillon. He marched toward turn 4 to give Dillon a "What the hell?" gesture next time around but after seeing replays admitted that he had contributed by getting a bit loose.

The Truck Series is doing an unusual double-header at Texas Motor Speedway with the IndyCar Series Firestone Twin 275s. There is no Nationwide Series event this week; the next Nationwide race is at Michigan on June 18.

Qualifying times

James Buescher was the only driver to top 179mph at Texas Motor Speedway during qualifying, as he earned his first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series career pole position for the WinStar World Casino 400k.

With the Cup drivers absent for once driving over at Pocono Raceway, the Truck regulars were given a proper chance to shine: rookie Joey Coulter (fresh from his headline-grabbing bump with Kyle Busch at Kansas last week) took second place while Austin Dillon was third at a track that saw him take pole in 2010.

Brian Ickler, driving the Kyle Busch Motorsports #18, started seventh alongside six-time Texas winner Todd Bodine.
