SPARTA, Ky. (AP) - Ron Hornaday held off a late surge from Mike
Skinner to win the NASCAR Camping World Truck race Saturday at
Kentucky Speedway, the third consecutive victory for the series points leader.

Hornaday became the first two-time winner in the 10-year history of the Built Ford Tough 225 at the 1½-mile northern Kentucky track. He also started from the pole, becoming the first driver to win at Kentucky after starting from the front row.

Hornaday's victory was delayed by two late cautions. Skinner, who qualified 19th of the 20 drivers, nearly pulled off the comeback in the final lap.
