The Truck Series Buckle Up Mobile 225 night race at Kentucky Speedway started with Raymond Casteel capturing the pole and Robert Vining #6 Pool Boys setting the fastest lap of the race. Doug Murray gained 15 spots for the most positions gained bonus. The race produced many close battles for position through the field with many position changes. Kevin Rupert led the most laps with 59, with Thomas Ogle going on to capture the win. This week the drivers showed good race-craft, which resulted in 1 caution with 6 lead changes and there were no disqualifications and 4 disconnects in a 26 truck field. The race ended with Thomas Ogle capturing his 3rd win of the season with Kevin Rupert finishing 2nd, Ken Schulz nabbing 3rd and Raymond Casteel finishing 4th.
This week the Truck Series moves to the Kroger 200 night race at Eldora Speedway with the current points leader Brian Glass looking to maintain the lead in the series. The question is … can he hold off the charging Old Bastards?
We shall see when the green flag drops at 9:05 pm Eastern time.
The Eldora race will be intense, and expect to see close battles all over the track.
