After having a fuel pump issue that cost him a shot at a victory at Dover International Speedway in 2010, this year's trip came out much better for Kyle Busch as was able to take the checkered flag in Friday's NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Lucas Oil 200.

Just like last year, Busch had the dominant truck, leading 128 of the 200 laps. But unlike last year where he ran out of fuel in the closing laps, this time Busch and the Traxxas team were able to seal the deal.

"It was a really good truck," Busch said. "These guys did an awesome job bringing the same truck back from last year."

The win was Busch's third of the season and the 27th of his career.

Busch held off Cole Whitt, who led 28 laps after taking two tires during a caution on lap 156, for the victory when the caution and checkered flag was displayed on the final lap for a crash between Nelson Piquet Jr. and Timothy Peters in Turn 1.

"I was waiting for them a little bit, seeing how the long run would play out and making sure I was saving a little bit of something so I could run him (Whitt) down and try to pass him," Busch said. "He was fast out there, man -- I was working for it. I was reeling him in a little bit at a time. I was kind of coming a little bit there at the end of it.

"I’ll tell you what -- Cole Whitt has something going on. He’s probably got some good talent there and it looked like he did a really nice job. On that last restart, he had me -- he left just with me, I didn’t get away from him at all. We just had a fast enough speed through (turns) one and two where we beat him.”

For Whitt, it was his career-best finish in seven starts.

"Running second to Kyle is a good points day for us - it's like winning the points for us," Whitt said. "We'll take that and move on and go to Charlotte and try to win one there."

Matt Crafton led 13 laps and finished third to take the series points lead away from Johnny Sauter, who finished 11th.

"This Menards Chevrolet was really, really good on long runs," said Crafton, who now leads Sauter by five points. "We just needed longer runs and we just didn't have that there at the end."

Austin Dillon and Kevin Harvick rounded out the top five.

The Camping World Truck Series now heads to Charlotte Motor Speedway for next Friday night's NC Education Lottery 200.
