Harvick Dominates Martinsville

MARTINSVILLE, Va. - Kevin Harvick won the Kroger 250 at Martinsville Speedway from the pole and was followed across the finish line by teammate Ron Hornaday Jr. to make it a Kevin Harvick Inc. 1-2 finish.

Harvick turned in a dominating performance to win his fourth straight race he's entered in the truck series and took back-to-back victories at Martinsville.

"It was a lot of fun for me, just for the fact that the thing was so dominant to drive," Harvick said. "I didn't really have to do a whole lot different. I just drove my line every lap, and we were able to make our way through traffic when we needed to."

"When we passed the 17 for the lead there, it looked like his truck started to get a little loose getting into the corner, and we were able to capitalize on that."

Hornaday trailed his team owner across the finish line but some fireworks broke out on pit lane when Johnny Sauter parked his truck directly in front of the defending series champion.

Sauter jumped from his truck and the two exchanged words before being separated by their crews and NASCAR officials.

Brian Ickler, Timothy Peters and Johnny Benson rounded out the top five.

Aric Almirola, Matt Crafton, Max Papis, Mario Gosselin and Ricky Carmichael completed the first ten finishers.

Todd Bodine came into the weekend as the series point leader nut mechanical problems sidelined him late in the going and he wound up 30th.

The Camping World Truck Series now heads to Nashville Superspeedway next Friday night.
