Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch both have plenty of racing experience at Martinsville, so it was probably not a surprise to either that Harvick had to bump his way to the front. With less then 10 laps to go in the Monday race, which was moved from Saturday due to rain, Harvick helped Busch up the track and took the lead.
Busch subsequently suffered a commitment violation and was taken out of the running. Harvick mastered the restart and pulled away from Ron Hornaday, who finished second in the NASCAR Camping World Trucks Series event.
The Series' next races on April 25 at the Kansas Speedway. The Martinsville race drew only 36 trucks for qualifying, which meant that everyone would start the 36-truck field. There were a handful of trucks that still have not acquired sponsorship for this season, so a full field in Kansas City is in doubt.
