Johnny Benson Outduels Ron Hornaday For Martinsville Win

Ron Hornaday dominated most of the day, but it was 4 tires, a better truck at the end, and little extra fuel that allowed Johnny Benson to move around Hornaday in the waning laps of the Kroger 200.

For those that can remember, Benson's always been known as a guy that was maybe too nice on the track. Today, it was refreshing to see him waring out Hornaday's truck, it shows how much he wants to win this championship this season.

As for the rest of the finishers, they're about who you would expect. Dennis Setzer capitalized on both KHI trucks running out of gas to finish 2nd, while Rick Crawford, Kyle Busch, and Todd Bodine rounded out the top 5.

Benson now leads Hornaday by 65 points with 4 races to go, with Matt Crafton and Bodine way behind. The BDR-KHI rivalry continues, this time with Benson in the running instead of Mike Skinner last season.
