MARTINSVILLE, Va.—Ron Hornaday Jr. powered away from Kyle Busch on a green-white-checkered-flag restart and claimed his first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victory at Martinsville Speedway in Saturday’s Kroger 200.
 
The win was the four-time truck series champion’s second of the year and the 47th of his career. Busch ran second, followed by series points leader Todd Bodine, Jason White and Aric Almirola. Mike Skinner, David Starr, Stacy Compton, Ricky Carmichael and Matt Crafton completed the top 10.
 
The race went six laps beyond its scheduled distance of 200 laps after a succession of cautions slowed the action three times in the last 20 laps. The 11th and final caution of the race, caused by Cody Cambensy’s spin on Lap 197, forced the race to overtime.
 
Notes: Four women—Johanna Long, Jennifer Jo Cobb and twins Amber and Angela Cope—started the race, the most ever in any of NASCAR’s top three touring series. Long, who came home 22nd, had the best finish of the four. … Bodine raced less than 24 hours after the death of his mother.
