Four-time Truck Series champion, Ron Hornaday now added another record to his collection after clenching his 50th career win at Kentucky Speedway.

Hornaday is the only active, full-time competitor whose career dates back to the inaugural Camping World Truck Series race at Phoenix International Raceway on February 5, 1995.

Team owner for 24 of those victories, Kevin Harvick said of Hornaday, “Ron has been the heart and soul of the Truck series. Fifty wins is just one more incredible achievement in a career that I’m sure will one day land him in the NASCAR Hall of Fame.”

Hornaday was in contention the entire race, leading a total of four times for 42 laps. His Kevin Harvick Inc. teammate Nelson Piquet Jr. led a total of 40 laps,

Winning the race was not an easy battle, fighting off the NCWTS young guns: Austin Dillon, James Buescher and Nelson Piquet Jr. who were all having strong runs throughout today’s Kentucky 225.
