FORT WORTH, Texas - Todd Bodine bypassed a chance to refuel on the final pit stop last night, and still had enough to win the fastest NASCAR Truck Series race ever at Texas Motor Speedway.
Bodine became the winningest driver for any series at Texas, winning his fifth truck race at the 11/2-mile, high-banked track.
In a race with only two cautions, Bodine won the WinStar World Casino 400 with an average speed of 152.282 m.p.h.
He finished 1.32 seconds ahead of Matt Crafton, who took the Camping World Trucks season points lead from Ron Hornaday Jr.
Colin Braun was a distant third, 10.3 seconds back.
FORT WORTH, Texas - Driving open-wheel instead of stock cars for Chip Ganassi this year, Dario Franchitti already has a victory and three other top-10 finishes through the first five races in his return to the IndyCar Series.
Franchitti also has his first pole of the season, for tonight's Bombardier Learjet 550 at Texas Motor Speedway. He earned it with an average speed of 214.513 m.p.h. on his four-lap qualifying run yesterday.
