HOMESTEAD, Fla. – Kyle Busch clinched the 2010 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series owner’s title with his victory in Friday night’s Ford 200 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The race to the finish was set up as a four lap dash when Elliott Sadler spun to bring out the races final caution flag with eight laps to go.

On the restart, Busch outran Ron Hornaday to the checkered flag in Friday night’s season finale to score his seventh win of the season and in the process lock up the year’s owner’s championship for his fledgling Kyle Busch Motorsports team.

While Todd Bodine clinched the series driver’s championship last week in Phoenix it was the first time in series history a different team won the owner’s title by 150 over Germain Racing.

At the finish line it was Busch, Hornaday, Johnny Sauter, Todd Bodine and Aric Almirola the top five.

“It happened quick,” said Busch of his first-year organization’s title. “It shows the determination of this racing team and the hard work of everyone associated with Kyle Busch Motorsports. We worked so hard to put together a solid group of people who all did such a great job and helped us build something that we’re proud of and look forward to next season already.”

“This is so cool to come out here and win in our last race and in the style that we did,” Busch said. “It’s fun to come out here and participate in the Truck races.

“For me, it’s great to race in this series, with guys like Ron Hornaday and Todd Bodine. Congratulations to Todd for winning the driver’s championship.”

Bodine finished fourth to end his 2010 campaign which resulted in his second series title.

“I never thought I’d be a one-time champion, let alone a two-time champion,” Bodine said. “It’s hard in a career to be a part of a group that cares as much as this one and is as good as this one. I count my blessings every day.”

Austin Dillon started the race from the pole but made contact with the wall early in the race and was never in contention. However he finished 30th to clinch the 2010 Rookie of the Year award.

The race was red flagged for nearly twenty minutes when John Jackson crashed off turn four and into the entrance of pit road. Jackson made hard impact with the barrels that line the pit road wall sending more than 1,000 pounds of sand onto the racing surface.
