Ty Dillon passes Kyle Busch for 1st Truck win

HAMPTON, Ga. — Ty Dillon raced to his first NASCAR Truck victory, passing Kyle Busch with six laps to go and pulling away Friday night.

Busch appeared to be in command with the race winding down, running several truck lengths ahead of the field. But Dillon quickly closed the gap and passed the 30-time Camping World Truck Series winner going into turn one. Busch banged the wall hard a couple of times, damaging his car and causing him to slow considerably.

After starting from the pole, Dillon won the Jeff Foxworthy's Grits Chips 200 by 3.227 seconds. Busch was second, followed by James Buescher.

The 20-year-old Dillon is the younger brother of last year's truck series champion, Austin Dillon, and grandson of NASCAR team owner Richard Childress.
