Hornaday Gets Big Win at TMS

Victory Gets Him Closer to Points leader Benson

Ron Hornaday Jr. won at Texas again.

He came from a lap down early for a dominating NASCAR Truck Series victory that got him within six points of points leader Johnny Benson with two races to go.

Hornaday was caught in the pit on an early stop because of a caution. He regained the lead from Kyle Busch on lap 108 of the 147-lap race at Fort Worth's 1½-mile high-banked Texas Motor Speedway.

Hornaday finished 0.958 seconds ahead of Busch, who led 87 laps in a backup truck salvaged this week from a hauler fire.

Benson finished third, nearly 9 seconds behind. But by passing two trucks in the final five laps to get that close, Benson retained the points lead in the close championship race. But his margin was trimmed from 31.
