Kyle Busch hadn’t won a Camping World Series truck race in his last seven starts but at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Friday night he overcame a pit road penalty to win the North Carolina Education Lottery 200.
Earlier this week Denny Hamlin told everyone via Twitter that he would win this week’s Sylvania 300 at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The proclamation came after a disappointing finish in Chicago where he ran out of gas and lost valuable positions in the chase for the Sprint Cup.
Since the last time NASCAR visited the Finger Lakes area of upstate New York there’s been some significant changes around the track. During the off-season the track completed the installation of new grandstands in several locations around the track.
