LONG POND, Pennsylvania — Kyle Busch's return to the Truck Series was a triumphant one, pulling away on the final laps Saturday to win at Pocono Raceway.

Busch's season debut mirrored his recent finishes in the Sprint Cup series, where he's won three straight races and four of five. He's on the pole for Sunday's race.

Busch, the second-winningest driver in series history, earned career victory No. 43. He won eight times in 2010 and seven times each in 2009 and 2014.

Busch had just enough fuel in an overtime finish to hold off fellow Cup driver Kevin Harvick. Tyler Reddick was third, followed by Tyler Reddick, Cameron Hayley and Austin Dillon.

Reddick took the series points lead from Matt Crafton. Crafton connected with Brad Keselowski and both drivers were knocked out of the race. Crafton returned and finished 28th.

Busch led 53 of 69 laps in the No. 51 Toyota.
