Ron Hornaday, Jr. Overcomes Third Lap Spin to Finish Second at Milwaukee Mile; Gains Points in Hunt for 2007 Championship
West Allis, Wisc - Ron Hornaday, Jr., No. 33 Camping World Silverado, thought his night might be over before it started on lap three of tonight's 200-lap/200-mile Toyota Tundra Milwaukee 200. The two-time NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series champion was involved in a two-truck incident coming out of turn four that sent him spinning.
However, luck was with the Kevin Harvick, inc. driver as he was able to right his bright blue and yellow Chevy Silverado and head for pit road. After a once over by the Rick Ren-led crew, Hornaday returned to the battle in the 24th position and fought his way through the field to second with 50 laps remaining.
Despite using every trick he has up his sleeve, Hornaday had to settle for second at the finish and a solid points night. Hornaday sits second in the standings, just 108 points behind the leader.
Round 12 of the 25-race NCTS season will be June 30, 2007 at Memphis Motorsports Park.
