Darrell “Bubba” Wallace Jr. took the field school on dirt Wednesday night leading 97 of 150 laps and holding off a hard charging Kyle Larson to score the win in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series 1-800 Car Cash Mudsummer Classic at the half mile dirt track at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg Oh. Wallace, driving a Kyle Busch Motorsports truck continued the domination for KBM; the team has now won eight of the 10 NASCAR Camping World Truck series races in 2014 and 11 of the last 15 dating back to last year.
Wallace took the lead from Larson with 19 to go. The duo battled for several laps, but Larson’s truck bounced off the wall several times, the final one with four laps to go finally slowed the truck and left Larson slowly rolling down the backstretch smoking; he finished 26th. Ron Hornaday who had run second much of the night retook that position, but Wallace was able to nearly coast across the line winning by just over five seconds.
The win was the second for Wallace in 2014 and the third of his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series career. MORE>>>
