Kyle Busch won Friday night’s Gander Outdoors Truck Series race at Texas Motor Speedway, giving him wins in the last four Truck Series races.

Busch held off Stewart Friesen over the last 20 laps to score the win as Friesen settled for his fifth runner-up finish in 53 starts.

Busch has now won four of the season’s first five races. He has won his last five Truck Series starts and six of his last eight starts. He finished second in the other two.

The top five was completed by Johnny Sauter, Grant Enfinger and Matt Crafton.

Busch led 97 of the race’s 147 laps.

Defending series champion Brett Moffitt led 33 laps but finished 19th. He suffered damaged late after contact with Ben Rhodes while racing among the leaders.

“The 24 (Moffitt) was who I was really worried about,” Busch told Fox Sports 1. "(Friesen) put up a good fight. About got to me there a couple of times. Fortunately, I was able to hold out.”
