Mark Martin wins Daytona Craftsman Truck race
This being Daytona, we didn't get the finish we wanted but Mark Martin in the #6 Scott's Miracle-Gro Ford won the GM Flex Fuel 250 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race at Daytona last night. After #77 Brendan Gaughan crashed with a few laps left, that left us with a green/white/checker finish. Martin was in the lead with teammates Todd Bodine in the #30 iRacing.com Toyota and Ted Musgrave in the #9 ASE Toyota behind him. Unfortunately, Ron Hornaday in the #33 Chevy crashed just as the leaders were taking the white flag. The race was stopped and the field frozen and Mark Martin was the race winner. Of course they only get one chance at the green/white/checker finish. The Daytona Busch Series race is this afternoon. It's on TNT in the US. I'm not sure if it is on TV in Canada.
