24-year-old Brian Scott took advantage of a restart to pass the leaders with two laps to go and won a wrecked-filled NASCAR Truck Series race at Phoenix that tightened up the season championship standings.

James Buescher appeared well on his way to padding his points lead by running in the top 10 late in the race, but slammed into the wall with three laps to go and ended up in 17th place.

Scott now has two wins in the Truck Series, 23 top tens and 0 poles.

It took James Buescher 76 races to win his first NASCAR Truck Series race when he took the SFP 250 in Kansas back in April.

It did not take him long to earn his second victory. Count it, four attempts!

The 22-year-old from the state of Texas led for 119 of the 150 laps, including the final 43, en route to winning the 2012 Camping World Truck Series UNOH 225 at the Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, Kentucky.

It was his second win at Kentucky Speedway, having been successful at the track in the ARCA race in 2009.

He became the series’ first two-time winner of 2012. Finishing second was Brad Keselowski followed by Ty Dillon, pole-sitter Matt Crafton and Timothy Peters.

At the start of the race, the temperature on the track was 117 degrees, with air temps of 98. It was the hottest air temperature ever for a Kentucky Speedway event, bypassing the 88 degree temperature for the Indy Car race in 2004.

Kyle Busch beats Tony Stewart in Prelude to the Dream charity race

POST-RACE PRESS CONFERENCES

ROSSBURG, OHIO — NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Kyle Busch showed he can win on any surface as he won the eighth annual Prelude to the Dream charity race at Tony Stewart’s dirt-track, Eldora Speedway before a standing-room only crowd of over 20,000.

Kyle Busch meets with the media

Busch started second and ran near the front of the pack during the entire late-model race, which consisted of 40 laps for the first time over the usual 30.

The original field of 26 cars was reduced to 15 cars in the final 16 laps of the Prelude on the half-mile oval track.

Kasey Kahne was the leading the race until he hit Bobby Labonte in Turn 3 after Labonte had spun out. Busch, who always knows how to take advantage of restarts, was in second-palce at the time, and took advantage of Kahne’s misfortune to win his first Prelude charity race after finishing in the top-five, four other trips to the western Ohio track.

Danica Patrick, the only female in the race, did a nice job and finished 15th, completing 37 of 40 laps. She spun out a couple of times, but basically stayed clear of all the accidents on the track. Not bad for a driver, who had never run a car on dirt before. She did say that at the age of 12, she competed in a go-kart race on dirt.

Not everybody in the crowd at Eldora Speedway was happy to see Patrick in the race. She received the same reaction that bad-boy Kurt Busch received, an equal amount of boos. One fan, who talked to me with the understanding I would not use her name, said that Patrick is competing in a man’s sport and can’t be successful. Patrick’s performances since leaving IndyCar to move over to NASCAR doesn’t really merit all the hype she creates. After all, she has not won a race in four years.

As a reporter of motor racing, I will say that Danica Patrick brings several qualities: beauty, always a great interview, determination, confidence, a lucrative name for sponsors and a big draw for TV audiences.

The race benefited Feed The Children with the net proceeds from HBO’s Pay-per-View telecast. Feed The Children agreed to send a truckload of food to the hometown or a city of choice of the top-10 finishers in the race. The event has raised 3.5 million for various charities across the nations since its inaugural season of 2005.

The Prelude race roster had drivers from NASCAR Sprint Cup, NASCAR Truck Series, IndyCar, NHRA and the World of Outlaw Sprint Series.

Busch said that “Tony Stewart has turned the Prelude to the Dream” race into a huge ordeal. It always fun to race this race and help people who are less fortunate.”

Tony Stewart said that the event has improved every year and is amazed that a town of Rossburg, Ohio, which is located in Darke County, and a population of 250 people, can get a crowd of 20,000-plus fans to attend the race.

The Prelude race is always run in June each year.

Hornaday’s old ways came to light on Friday as he led for 129 of the 200 laps to win the Camping World Trucks Series race at O’Reilly Raceway Park in the northwest Indianapolis suburb of Clermont, Indiana.

Hornaday, who had qualified fifth for the race, became the first driver to win four major NASCAR races at O’Reilly. He also won the trucks races in 1997, 2007 and 2009 at the short 0.686-mile track.

Kyle Busch, Hornaday’s only real challenger, finished second.

Matt Crafter finished third, while pole-sitter Timothy Peters finished 10th.

Points leader Todd Bodine finished seventh.
