*In a Nutshell:* Kyle Busch took the checkered flag 0.302 seconds ahead of rookie Parker Kligerman to win the UNOH 225 Thursday Night at Kentucky Speedway. Busch drove from the back of the pack after missing the drivers’ meeting to score his 29th career Truck Series victory. Brendan Gaughan, Todd Bodine and Jason White rounded out the top 5.
*Who Should Have Won:* *Kyle Busch* Busch posted the sixth quickest time in the first practice session and fifth quickest in final practice before qualifying his No. 18 Dollar General Toyota in eighth. However, because he missed the drivers’ meeting, he was forced to start from the rear of the field, and in typical Kyle Busch fashion, he drove right on up to the front, leading his first lap after winning the race off of pit road under the third caution. Though polesitter Johnny Sauter and rookie Nelson Piquet, Jr. both managed to drive past the No. 18 under green, it was Busch whose truck held on until the end (Sauter broke an axle and Piquet found himself involved in the seventh caution with five laps remaining).
