Weather conditions for Kentucky Speedway’s third weekend of the season couldn’t have been any better for the race teams and race fans. Temperatures were in the 70s Friday and Saturday for the Camping World Truck Series race, the Built Ford Tough 225, and the ARCA RE/MAX Series Click It or Ticket Buckle-Up Kentucky 150.


Friday was a day of practice for both series as teams worked to find the right setup for the races and Saturday’s qualifying sessions. Ron Hornaday, Jr. won the Keystone Light Pole Award in truck qualifying.

In the final laps of the truck race it was a battle between two truck series champions, Hornaday in the #33 Chevrolet, and Skinner in his #5 Exide Toyota. Hornaday was first across the finish line, the first driver to win both the pole and race at Kentucky in the truck series.

In qualifying for the ARCA series, Brian Ickler set a new track record 179.247 mph, but spun in turn two and tapped the wall. There was little damage to the body, but third gear was destroyed in the mishap, meaning Ickler was forced to start the race at the rear of the field

In the ARCA event, Grant Enfinger, in the #83 Ford, took the lead from Parker Kligerman on lap 89, but on the final lap Kligerman went low in turn four to pass Enfinger and take the win in the Click It or Ticket Buckle Up Kentucky 150.
