ROCKINGHAM, NC :: Kyle Larson dominated Sunday’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at the Rockingham Speedway to claim his first truck series victory in just his fifth start.  Larson started third and quickly jumped to the lead and never looked back leading 187 laps in route to victory.

“It means a lot to finally get a National Series victory.”  said Larson after his win on Sunday.

Logano, fresh off a fifth place finish in Saturday night’s NASCAR Spring Cup Series started seventh.  On the second to last pit stop, the Brad Keselowski Racing teams made a gamble and put scuff tires on Logano’s ride.  A caution with less then thirty laps left allowed Logano to put on four fresh tires and charge through the field.

The final caution of the day involved three separate accidents.  Timothy Peters and Chris Jones would get collected on the frontstretch while Ron Hornaday and Darrell Wallace, Jr would tangle in turn three after contact between the two.

“If he (Ron Hornaday Jr.) wanted to brush me up then I brushed him up earlier in the race so he should have took note of that.  he just flat out wrecked us.  It’s unfortunate ” said Wallace after the race.

“Got to him and he wasn’t going to give me the top so I knew what to do– I had to take his line away.  I didn’t put him in the fence or anything and he just pulls that bonehead move. I will go have a word with him — I’m not happy, I’m not going to throw a punch or anything.”

Late Model Stock racer, Jeb Burton started on the pole for the second week in a row, but quickly faded from the top spot.  He would come home 7th in the Turner Scott #4 Truck.

Former Late Model Stock driver Timothy Peters would struggle all afternoon, never really getting a grip on the worn out asphalt that is Rockingham Speedway.  Peters would finish a disappointing 26th.

“We just never could get a handle on our Parts Plus Tundra all weekend. I felt like Chris Jones could have cut us a little slack, but nonetheless it’s just a bad weekend.  They don’t call it big time auto racing for nothing.  We’ll swallow it and go to Kansas next week and try to rebound.” said Peters after the wreck with Jones.

2012 Snowball Derby winner, Erik Jones started his second Truck Series race this weekend shotgun on the field and drove his way to the 9th position after 200 laps.

“Long day — wow, long day.  We started dead last, shotgun on the field.  The truck hit the track in qualifying.  We went a lap down early, got the lucky dog and then went around and got another caution.  Out Toyota Tundra was fast all day — it really was.  Track position was our factor that killed all day.  We were a little better than the finish again, but going to Iowa here next for me — got a little bit of off time, which is kind of disappointing. ” said Jones after his second consecutive start for Kyle Busch Motorsports.

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series packs up and heads west to the Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas for the fourth race in the 2013 season.
