The Buckle Up in Your Truck 225 presented by Click It or Ticket is a 225-mile-long (362 km) annual race NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series race held at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, Kentucky. Kentucky received a second date beginning in 2011 as part of NASCAR's latest round of schedule realignment; since 2000 the track had always held a Truck Series event.

History[edit]

In the inaugural UNOH 225, which was held on July 7, 2011, Johnny Sauter won the pole position, but Kyle Busch won the race during a green-white-checkered finish.[3] Busch started in the last position after missing the drivers meeting held earlier that day.[4]
