Kyle Busch won Friday afternoon’s Lucas Oil 200 Camping World Truck Series race at Dover International Speedway.

The victory was his 96th in a national NASCAR  series race.

Cole Whitt was second.

Third was Matt Crafton, who took over the series points lead.

Austin Dillon was fourth and Kevin Harvick fifth.

Busch got the victory when Nelson Piquet Jr. and Timothy Peters wrecked on the final lap.

“It was really good,” Busch said of the race. “Obviously, we had a really fast Traxxas Tundra today.  The guys did a great job.  It st arted yesterday coming off the truck and making some adjustments to it and getting it to where we felt it would really run like it would last year because last year we were really good here, too.

“Eric (Phillips, crew chief) and Rick (Ren, general manager) did a great job at giving me a good setup underneath that thing and it was good.  Overall, the race went pretty well for us.  It wasn’t quite the walk in the park it seems.  This place is so difficult and challenging.  You feel like you’re always on edge.  You’re really unsure about how the next corner is going to be and what’s going to happen.”

This is Busch’s third victory and fifth top-10 finish in 2011.This is his second victory and fourth top-10 finish in seven races at Dover International Speedway. He is the first driver to win multiple races at Dover.

Whitt posted his first top-10 finish in one races at Dover International Speedway. It is his career-best finish, and first top five.

Crafton posted his sixth top-10 finish in 11 races at Dover International Speedway. Crafton leads the point standings by 5 points over Johnny Sauter.
