2004: Kasey Kahne prevails to go 2-for-2 in his first two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts while Bobby Hamilton finishes 16th to wrap up his only championship at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Kahne led 54 of 134 laps of the Ford 200 and took the checkered flag 1.016 seconds ahead of teammate Ted Musgrave in a 1-2 sweep by Jim Smith-owned Dodges. David Starr, pole-starter David Reutimann and Matt Crafton completed the top five. Hamilton, who edged Dennis Setzer by 46 points in the final standings, remains the most recent driver-owner champion in the truck series.
