It was a classic Kyle Busch show Friday night in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series Strat 200 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Busch, a Las Vegas native, won Stage 1 and Stage 2 and went on to take the overall race win in an utterly dominating performance.
This marks Busch’s seventh-consecutive victory in the Truck Series. This streak dates back to 2018.
Busch led an incredible 106 laps in the 134 lap contest and he beat polesitter Johnny Sauter to the finish line by nearly six-seconds. Austin Hill followed Sauter to the finish in third, while Matt Crafton and Ben Rhodes finished out the top-five finishers in the race.
A fun battle to watch toward the end of the race was the race for sixth as Zane Smith, Todd Gilliland and Tanner Gray put on a heck of a show for the position.
In the end, it was Smith that ended up sixth, Gilliland was seventh and Gray was eighth.
Stewart Friesen and Sheldon Creed capped the top-10 finishers on the night.
