Dillon wins at Las Vegas Motor Speedway

Austin Dillon, grandson of NASCAR owner Richard Childress, led 93 of 146 laps, including the final 35 laps on Saturday night at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and won his second Camping World Truck Series race of the season.

“My grandfather and dad had a very rough week,” Dillon said. “I think it was the roughest week of my dad’s career at RCR. My dad said that after the week he had that I had to come down here and win it. To come out here and do it is pretty awesome.” Dillion said.

Dillion also became the youngest winner in all three national NASCAR series at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Johnny Sauter finished second, James Buescher third, Todd Bodine fourth and Matt Crafton finished fifth.

Bodine’s fourth place finish increases his series standings to 262 points over Aric Almirola.

“We didn’t win but it’s a good day for points because everybody we needed to worry about was behind us.  We’ll just go on to the next one in.” Bodine said.

Crafton finished his eleventh consecutive top-ten finish of the season

“It’s a great night for the entire team whenever we can both finish in the top five.  I didn’t want to come out here and finish second, especially to Johnny. I told him in the conference call this week if I was leading not to try to pass me on the outside because I’d make my truck awfully wide.” Crafton said.

The second place finish marks the eighth top-five finish for Sauter in the last eleven races.

“I hate finishing second.  We’re here to win, and to be that close and not get it done is frustrating. We’d have liked to win back-to-back races out here. We just missed out on it but we have some really good tracks coming up still.” Sauter said.

Up next on the schedule, Martinsville Speedway on October 23.
