|Kyle Busch Wins Again in Trucks, Owner Title Close
|FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- Kyle Busch moved closer to an owner's championship in the NASCAR Camping World Trucks Series when he drove his No. 18 Toyota to another victory at Texas on Friday night.
Busch has won seven of his 14 starts in the trucks series this season. He has won 22 NASCAR races this year, with three Sprint Cup wins and 12 in Nationwide.
While not in contention for the driver's title in the trucks series because he doesn't run full-time, Busch could win an owner's title with his first-year team. With two races left, Busch's team leads in owner points over the No. 30 truck driven by leading driver Todd Bodine.
Busch got his 23rd career trucks victory by finishing ahead of Johnny Sauter, who rebounded from running out of fuel with 55 laps left. Matt Crafton finished third, ahead of Bodine and Elliott Sadler.
