Busch Holds off Bodine in NASCAR Trucks Race at Chicago
JOLIET, Ill. (AP) -- Kyle Busch withstood two late challenges for the lead from Todd Bodine, and hung on to win the NASCAR Camping World truck series race at Chicagoland Speedway in overtime Friday night.

It is Busch's second straight truck win at Chicagoland, his fourth series victory of the season and 20th of his career. And it comes in the wake of his remarkable three-race weekend sweep at Bristol.

Busch did a tire-smoking victory burnout on the frontstretch, with his crew warning him on the radio to take it easy on the engine.

Bodine finished second, followed by Ron Hornaday Jr., Johnny Sauter and Justin Lofton.
