Kyle Busch claimed his first Kansas Speedway win on Friday night after a dominating performance in the SFP 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at the track near Kansas City, Kan., leading 104 of the 167 laps that made up the event. The win was the 37th-career Truck Series for Busch and the 29th for crew chief Eric Phillips, handing him the distinction of Camping World Truck Series all-time winningest crew chief.

"Congratulations to Eric for most wins," Busch said in victory lane.

Matt Crafton finished second, tops among series championship-eligible drivers, and took over the points lead. Joey Logano finished third after leading 41 laps, and Austin Dillon finished fourth. Tayler Malsam rounded out the top-five.

The SFP 250 was attrition-filled, with the yellow flag waving nine times, the first time on the first lap and twice in the first 10-laps. All three Red Horse Racing drivers -- Timothy Peters, Bryan Ickler and German Quiroga -- were caution casualties in the first 10-laps, with other drivers, including Ron Hornaday, got caught up in multiple cautions.

As Busch dominated, for most of the race, his main competition came from Brad Keselowski Racing teammates Logano and Ryan Blaney. Both BKR trucks were running ahead of Busch shortly after a lap-77 caution, but Blaney was another casualty of a caution and collected the truck of Johnny Sauter before it was all said and done on lap 85.

Logano was caught off the lead lap by an ill-fated yellow flag just after making a green-flag pit stop on lap 122. He took the wave around to get back on the lead lap, but restarted 11th. Dillon, meanwhile, restarted with the lead after taking only two tires. Busch was second.

Busch temporarily lost second to Crafton on the restart, but got the position back with 26 laps to go. Five laps later, he got by Dillon for the lead.

"Can't say enough about everyone from KBM," Busch said. "Everybody there -- the chassis shop, body guys, everybody there in the fab shop -- they do such a great job for me, whether it's Late Models or whether it's trucks. They're a lot of fun to work with. They're a great group."

Finishing sixth through 10th were Jeb Burton, Quiroga, Hornaday, Joe Nemechek and Mason Mingus.
