For the second week in a row, Johnny Benson is king of the Trucks!
Taking the lead on the last restart from a race dominated by Ron Hornaday, Jr., Benson was able to hold off a last ditch effort by Mike Bliss to win the Toyota Tundra Milwaukee 200. Bliss finished a season best second when he passed Hornaday on the final lap.
Jack Sprague, who had been fast all day long, from practice through qualifying and on to the checkers, finished fourth.
David Reutimann, Timothy Peters, Dennis Setzer, David Starr, Rick Crawford and Terry Cook, who ironically started 10th, drives the No. 10, and finished 10th, rounded out the Top 10.
When asked about how he did it on that last restart, Benson replied, "I tried to be as smoothly aggressive as I could!"

Yeah! I like that.
And then I think, ‘It’s only going to get better next season’.
I must be waayyy outta shape! I don’t think I can handle all the excitement all at once. I gotta work back up to that level of
Fan-O-Rama – Super Deluxe, stamina
Johnny’s first win plum tuckered me out from all the excitement and bantering from my friend. She’s yellin’ “Go Johnny!!”
Not to be out done, I decided to better that cheer,...——“”GO MARK!!!””
Whud I yell?
And I did it several more times—lost count actually.
That was a rough call!
I like Johnny and wanted him to win, but—Mark is my favorite and has been for a long time.
Too much stuff like that’ll getcha crazy—quick.
Take Johnny’s driving to the win AND
Throw the excitement from David Gilliland’s outstanding performance in the Busch race, the same week end, into the mix and stir it up, and ….....
Now, When Johnny Comes Marching Home Again, he wins another race.
That’s two in a row.
Wouldn’t surprise me if he wins a third race.
Is it my imagination?,Or is Johnny looking younger? Winning races can do that to a driver, donchknow.
