FORT WORTH, Texas — Kyle Busch raced to his fourth straight NASCAR Trucks Series success Friday night at Texas Motor Speedway.
Busch pushed his NASCAR-record success total to 202 along with also his Trucks listing to 55.
Busch had plenty of challengers but still led 97 laps in the No. 51 Toyota, running his four-race total to 473. No other racer had headed more than 54 in 2013. Brent Moffitt led 33 laps before fading to finish 19th.
“I thought we were decent,” Busch said in Victory Lane. “Not as good because we wished to be once we piled up next to the field. The 2-4 (Moffitt) was very fast and the 52 (Stewart Friesen) was very fast. They also made me work for it”
Busch started the streak at Atlanta and followed victories in Las Vegas and Martinsville.
Pole-winner Grant Enfinger won the first stage and finished fourth. Busch won the 2nd point.
Stewart Friesen was next for the next year in a row in the event, 1.269 seconds behind. It’s the fifth period Friesen, the growing season points leader despite never winning a race, has finished second in his three-year livelihood.
Johnny Sauter, the defending race winner, was thirdparty.
