Hornaday's No. 33 Chevy truck, owned by Kevin Harvick, came to a stop on its roof, but the driver soon emerged without a scratch.
"I brought the steering wheel back," Hornaday told SPEED TV, holding the wheel in his hand after being released from the infield care center. "If you can't win, you gotta bring the steering wheel back. But it was cool to come here. I led a lot of laps and learned a bunch. Too bad we ruined a good truck."
The crash, which occurred with three laps to go, involved five other trucks and prompted NASCAR to bring out a red flag and then finish the race with a green-white-checkered, two-lap shootout.
The finish was just as wild, as Kyle Busch nearly lost control of his truck going to the inside of Aric Almirola, but nipped Almirola at the line by .002 of a second, or about a foot. Johnny Sauter went to the outside of Almirola and made it three wide at the finish, but crossed under the flag in third.
