If at first you don’t succeed, try again was Kyle Busch’s mantra Saturday at Texas Motor Speedway.
Having been disqualified after winning the Xfinity Series race earlier in the day due to a car height violation, Busch roared back to dominate and win the evening’s Truck Series event.
Kyle Busch Motorsports teammate Christian Eckes finished a close second. Defending Truck Series champ Matt Crafton equaled his best finish of the season thus far with a third-place outing, followed by Stewart Friesen and Brett Moffitt.
There was some movement in the standings. Crafton moved up to 10th place, the final playoff-eligible spot, 75 points behind series leader Austin Hill. Derek Kraus is 11th, 11 points behind Crafton and below the playoff cut line, while Johnny Sauter dropped from 10th to 12th in the standings, 22 points behind Crafton and below the cut line.
