Hornaday sets NASCAR Camping World Truck Series record with four wins in a row

Ron Hornaday Jr. set a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series record by winning his fourth race in row. It is another in a long list of Truck Series records Hornaday holds.
He won the race at O’Reilly Raceway Park in Indianapolis on Friday night. It was his third career Truck Series win at the track and the 44th career Truck Series win.
His 44 Truck Series win are the most of any driver in the series.
Hornaday led the most laps in the race at O’Reilly Raceway Park, but he didn’t take the lead from Mike Skinner until lap 62. Hornaday ended up leading 67 of the 200 laps. With the win, Hornaday, a three-time Truck Series champion, extended his lead in the Truck Series standings to 174 points over Skinner.
“We were just really tight on those long runs and I just kept playing with the rear brake,” said Hornaday, a former Saugus Speedway champ and driver for Kevin Harvick Inc. “Then Skinner put those tires on and I thought he had us; although, I had searched and found a groove that worked. If you miss it by a half inch, you are going to get loose up off. I concentrated every time and when Skinner got that good run off of there, he could have put me up against the fence, but he didn’t. We haven’t got a mark on this truck. I have to thank Mike for that. Colin Braun ran one heck of a race. Man this is what the Truck Series is all about, this is a lot of fun.”
