Todd Bodine won the rain-shortened Lucas Oil 200 Camping World Truck Series race at Dover International Raceway on Friday afternoon.

The victory at the Dover mile was the first of the season for Bodine and the the first since he won at Kentucky in 2010.

Parker Kligerman finished second and Kevin Harvick, who dominated until the rains came, was third.

“We didn’t have the best (truck) today, but Rick made a great call,” Bodine said. “I didn’t realize what he was trying to accomplish, or how close we were on fuel, but it worked out. You don’t like to win ‘em this way, but you know what? I’ve lost ‘em this way, so I’m going to take this one, and we’re going to go to the house.

“Kevin had the best truck, but racing isn’t always about having the best truck. It’s about strategy and putting yourself in the right position, and Rick Gay did that for this team.”

Fourth was Nelson Piquet Jr. while Cale Gale was fifth.

Rounding out the top 10 were Ty Dillon James Buescher, Matt Crafton, Timothy Peters and Justin Lofton.

The race was marred by a succession of spins, wrecks and cautions. Twice it was interrupted by rain. The first batch of rain brought out the red flag with 80 laps to go. The second – and final – time, with just over 53 laps to go.
