Share This Story
LOUDON, N.H.Last weekend, Bobby Hamilton Jr. ran out of fuel, which possibly cost him his first career NASCAR Busch Series victory. Saturday afternoon, Hamilton Jr. had a lot of trouble in the pits, but this time he was determined not to let it cost him. Hamilton Jr. charged from 17th place in the final 63 laps, taking the lead from Shane Hmiel with 14 circuits remaining and then impressively pulling away to win the Busch 200 at New Hampshire International Speedway. New Hampshire International Raceway has never seen a repeat winner in 16 Busch Series races. It was Hamilton Jr.¿s first career victory in 96 Busch Series starts. Todd Bodine finished second, followed by Jack Sprague, Shane Hmiel, Mike McLaughlin, Randy LaJoie, Scott Riggs, Hank Parker Jr., Jamie McMurray and Kevin Grubb. Hamilton Jr.¿s crew chief, Fred Wanke, has won Craftsman Truck Series races in the past, but the 53-year-old had never won a car race at NASCAR¿s top levels.
