(Darlington/WLTX) --- For the first time in six years, Darlington hosted the NASCAR's Camping World Truck Series with series points leader Todd Bodine taking the checkered flag in the Too Tough To Tame 200 Saturday night.
This had already been an exciting week in the Pee Dee after Wednesday's announcement that Darlington would retain its Mother's Day weekend schedule in 2011.
Having the truck series in Darlington is "a perfect fit" said track president Chris Browning who hopes the trucks will be back next year.
Winnsboro native Justin Hobgood competed in the event for Rick Ware Racing as he continues to carry on the family tradition. His father, Will, is a former Goody's Dash Series champion and both Justin and brother Jake have competed in that series and the Nationwide Series.
Justin says he loves coming to Darlington because it allows him the luxury of sleeping at home instead of another hotel room. Unfortunately, Justin's night ended early as an overheating issue sent him to the garage. He would finish 34th out of 36 drivers.
Meanwhile, Bodine won for the second straight weekend and the third time this season. He now leads Aric Almirola by 231 points in the Camping World Truck Series standings.
