Erik Jones won the pole for Wednesday night's Mudsummer Classic Camping World Truck Series race after posting the fastest lap in qualifying at Eldora Speedway, a half-mile dirt track.
Darrell Wallace Jr. put on a dominating performance but had to hold off Kyle Larson in a hard-fought battle during the closing laps to win Wednesday night's MudSummer Classic Camping World Truck Series race at Eldora Speedway.
Last year's truck race at Eldora marked the first time in nearly 43 years a NASCAR national touring series event was held on a dirt track. The last major NASCAR race ran on dirt had been on Sept. 30, 1970 when Richard Petty won the Home State 200 at the one-mile State Fairgrounds Speedway in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Erik Jones continued Kyle Busch Motorsports' dominance this season and kept Toyota's winning streak alive in the Camping World Truck Series by winning Friday night's American Ethanol 200 at Iowa Speedway.
Timothy Peters is the only driver with multiple truck victories at this track, having won the July race the past two years.
Busch, the driver/owner of the No. 51 Toyota, will attempt to set a personal record in trucks with his six consecutive win. He has scored victories in each of his first four starts in the series this season -- Daytona, Kansas, Charlotte and Dover -- as well as a win in last year's season-finale at Homestead. Erik Jones drove the No. 51 at Martinsville (March 30), Texas (June 6) and Gateway (June 14).
Kyle Busch's winning streak in the Camping World Truck Series continued on Thursday night after he put on a dominating performance in the UNOH 225 at Kentucky Speedway.
