Setzer bests Busch to win Trucks race

MARTINSVILLE, Va. --- Dennis Setzer assumed the lead when Kyle Busch had to brake to avoid a crash in front of him Saturday, then held on through numerous restarts to win the Kroger 250 Craftsman Truck Series race at Martinsville Speedway.


The victory was the first for Dodge since the late Bobby Hamilton won at Mansfield in 2005, and the truck Setzer won in is co-owned by Hamilton's widow, Lori.

"The emotions are running high right now," Lori Hamilton said. "We always said after Bobby passed away that if we could build it, then we'd do it in honor of him."

Matt Crafton finished second, followed by Rick Crawford, Ken Schrader and Erik Darnell.

Crafton's best previous finish was third.
