Rossburg, OH (SportsNetwork.com) -
Darrell Wallace Jr. put on a dominating performance but had to hold off Kyle Larson in a hard-fought battle during the closing laps to win Wednesday night's Mudsummer Classic Camping World Truck Series race at Eldora Speedway.
Wallace, who started sixth, led 97 of 150 laps around this half-mile dirt track. Larson grabbed the top spot from Wallace just before the seventh and final caution with 23 laps remaining.
After the last restart with 18 laps to go, Wallace quickly pulled ahead of Larson to take the lead for good. While attempting to catch Wallace, Larson repeatedly hit the wall and sustained significant damage to the right-front of his No. 32 Turner Scott Motorsports Chevrolet.

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) -
As a driver, team owner and track owner, Tony Stewart is in the midst of a very busy week with his obligations at Eldora Speedway and Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
"Smoke" is on the go, beginning with Wednesday's Mudsummer Classic Camping World Truck Series race at Eldora, a half-mile dirt track he owns in Rossburg, Ohio. Stewart is not competing in the truck race there but has his share of responsibilities as the event promoter. It's the second time the series will run at Eldora. Austin Dillon won the inaugural race last year.
