Skinner wins rain-shortened race
KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Mike Skinner waited through two days and two weather delays to win the rain-shortened O'Reilly Auto Parts 250 Trucks race at Kansas Speedway.
Skinner was in the lead when the race was postponed after 52 laps on Saturday, lost the lead in the pits to defending champion Roy Hornaday Jr., then went back up front just before the second rain delay hit Monday.
Skinner was in the pits when the race was called after 132 laps -- 35 short of the finish -- for his 26th career victory in the NASCAR Camping World Trucks Series.
Johnny Benson finished second and Brian Scott was third. Hornaday ended up fourth and Trucks rookie Brian Ickler finished fifth driving in place of series points leader Kyle Busch, who was at the NASCAR race in Talladega.
