The Truck series ran at Darlington on Saturday. It was a good day in Darlington for a one day show. They practiced, Qualiflyed, and Raced same day.

There was 8 lead changes and 10 cautions. The first caution came right as 7 trucks piled up into turn 1 first lap. On lap 98 there was a scary crash involding #4 Ricky Carmicheal and #20 Johanna Long. Rickey spun and Johnna had no plae to go and slamed broadside into Ricky. Both drivers walked away OK thank God! That crash brought out a 7 min. red flag for track cleanup.

Kasey Khane driving for #18 KBMS would go on to dominate the race and take the win. #33  Ron Hornaday finished 2nd and #30 Todd Bodine finished 3rd. #2 Elliott Sadler would finish 7th.  Matt Crafton left Darlinton with the points lead.
