Truck racing at Daytona International Speedway usually has many wild wrecks and Friday’s NASCAR Camping World Truck race, the NextEra Energy Resources 250 was no exeption to the rule.

Rookie John King was the winner in Victory Lane after the race ended, but not without some drama.

King’s truck ran into leader Johnny Sauter in the second of three attempts at a green-white-checkered finish and later was held on to win the wild Truck Series opener.

The win was King’s first NASCAR victory in eight tries and just the third in his career in any race. He previously won a late-model race on a dirt track and a late-model stock car race, both in his native Virginia.

The 23-year-old drives the #7 Red Horse Racing truck.

Timothy Peters finished second, giving the Red Horse Racing team a 1-2 finish in the first race of 2012.

Justin Lofton was third, followed by Travis Kvapil, Jason White and Todd Bodine.

The race took 2 hours, 17 minutes, 13 seconds, with an average speed of 119.169 mph, with 9 caution flags for 37 laps, there were 11 lead changes involving 8 drivers.

Dale Earnhardt Jr., who has had trouble winning races for the past two years, has reclaimed a spot he was accustomed to win he was a winning driver, the pole position.

He captured the pole position for Sunday’s Daytona 500 with a lap of 186.089 mph during qualifying.

The pole is a big boost to Earnhardt’s confidence, because he is coming off a couple of disappointing seasons.

This Daytona 500 will be bittersweet for Junior. It’ll be the 10-year anniversary of his father’s death at the track in 2001. NASCAR has plans to honor his dad throughout the week.

Earnhardt’s Hendrick Motorsports teammate, Jeff Gordon, qualified second. 2011 will be the second straight Daytona 500 front row sweep for Hendrick, who put Mark Martin on the pole and Earnhardt #2 last year.

The rest of the field will be set after two qualifying races on Thursday.

Already assured of spots in the field are Bill Elliott, Travis Kvapil, Joe Nemechek and Terry Labonte.
