Hornaday Extends Lead In NASCAR Truck Series Standings

sportslocalRon Hornaday Jr. finished fourth in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Martinsville Speedway in Virginia on Saturday and extended his lead in the Truck Series standings.

Hornaday leads second place Matt Crafton by 224 points with four races remaining in the Truck Series season.

Hornaday, driver of the No.33 Chevrolet Silverado for Kevin Harvick Inc., has won three Truck Series championships. It was his 13th top-five finish of the season.

 

Timothy Peters won the Truck Series race, the first of his career. Todd Bodine was second, followed by Colin Braun in third.

“That wasn’t points racing today,” Hornaday said. “Todd was a little slower right in the center. I went up after the race and told him I didn’t mean to run in to him every time, just burned my brakes up behind Todd and Colin got by me. I am sure glad Colin ran in to the side of my door, it straightened me back up. Awesome day for the VFW Chevrolet. This is one hurdle we had to jump and we jumped it.”

About Connie Jones

Connie and her husband, John, moved to the Santa Clarita Valley almost 30 years ago. Living in Santa Clarita for that long is the direct opposite of Connie’s childhood. She was an Army ‘brat’ who moved every two to three years. Consequently, she has lived in many states and even spent three years in Europe. All three of her kids went to Santa Clarita schools. Connie says the best thing about her job at KHTS is that she is never bored. “If I’m not smiling, Carl is sure to ask why, just before giving me a mind-boggling project.” “KHTS AM-1220 is an integral part of our community and I’m glad to be a part of it. Besides, the DJs will take my request to play Shania Twain’s ‘Still the One’ for my wedding anniversary – gotta love that!”
