Kyle Busch still perfect in trucks

SPARTA, Ky. — Kyle Busch made it 5 for 5 this season in the Trucks series, holding off Kyle Busch Motorsports teammate Darrell Wallace Jr. on Thursday night in the UNOH 225 at Kentucky Speedway.

Busch has six straight series victories dating to last season and 40 overall. The Sprint Cup driver led the final 55 laps in the 150-lap race with an average speed of 130.962 mph. He also won at the 1.5-mile track in 2011.

Wallace, the winner two weeks ago at Gateway in Madison, Ill., finished 1.844 seconds behind Busch.

Busch's drivers have won nine of the series' last 12 races, with Wallace winning twice and Erik Jones once. Toyota has won 10 straight races, starting with Jones' Phoenix victory last year.

Ryan Blaney was third, followed by Timothy Peters, Brad Keselowski, Matt Crafton, Austin Dillon, Ron Hornaday Jr., points leader Johnny Sauter and Ben Kennedy.
