Under the Friday night lights, Ron Hornaday captured the 2009 Camping World Truck Series Championship, while his boss, Kevin Harvick, took the checker flag to win the Lucas Oil 150 at Phoenix International Raceway. Hornaday is the oldest driver to capture a championship in any of the three top series. Kyle Busch was a close second followed by Billy Ballew Motorsports team mate Aric Almirola. Busch and Almirola still have a chance to steal the Owner’s Championship away from Kevin Harvick, Inc. next week for Billy Ballew Motorsports – should be a great race at Homestead! Both KHI and Billy Ballew driver’s use SCHROTH harnessbelts.
JIMMY JOHNSON WINS AGAIN!
A record breaking 4th in a row Sprint Cup Championship is one race away for Jimmy Johnson after his 1st place finish on Sunday at Phoenix International. Jimmy extended his points lead to 108 over Mark Martin still leaving Mark in contention but at a bit of a long shot. Either way it will be a historic championship next week at Homestead for either Jimmy or Mark. We wish them both the best of luck. All of the Hendrick Motorsports drivers run with SCHROTH harnessbelts.
NATIONWIDE SERIES ALL BUT TIED UP FOR KYLE BUSCH
Kyle Busch was forced to hold off his championship celebration by a week when he hit the wall during a spin on lap 7 of Saturday’s Nationwide Race in Phoenix. Kyle’s team did a great job in making repairs throughout the day which got Kyle back solidly to the top ten but Carl Edwards managed to collect the maximum number of points by leading the most laps and finishing first. If Kyle had been able to pass just one more person before the end of the race, he could have clinched the title a week early. So long as Kyle starts the race in Homestead next Saturday – he will take his first NASCAR Series Championship.
