Ryan Newman made his first career start in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series memorable when he edged Ron Hornaday to win Saturday's E-Z-Go 200 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Newman got around his Kevin Harvick Inc. teammate Hornaday on the final lap to score his first win in the truck series.

"He raced me clean and I have to say thanks for that first and foremost," Newman said of Hornaday. "I didn't really know what to expect. It was a lot of fun.

"Ron raced me like a gentleman. Obviously, he is racing for a championship and we were racing for the win and we were well aware of that. But he was racing for the win, too."

Hornaday was disappointed with the runner-up finish but tipped his cap to his new teammate.

"Second stinks," he said. "We ran good all day and that just showed what KHI's got, two great teams."

Denny Hamlin, Todd Bodine and Scott Speed rounded out the top five.

Erik Darnell, Johnny Benson, Kyle Busch, T.J. Bell and Bryan Scott completed the first ten finishers.

Benson was able to hold on to the series point lead but is now only 31 ahead of Hornaday.

Only 33 trucks started the race with the field lined up based on points after qualifying was rained out. Twenty nine were running at the finish.

The race was slowed by four cautions for 15 laps.

The Craftsman Truck Series now heads to texas Motor Speedway next Friday night for the Chevy Silverado 350k.
