Overlooked in the running order of the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series at Martinsville Speedway could be Austin Dillon, who drove the No. 8 Phone Skope Chevy for Nemco Motorsports. Dillon finished 13th after starting 12th.
It was a quiet day for the No. 8 group, considering they won this race last spring. Dillon managed to finish ninth in Stage 1, but fell out of the top-10 for Stage 2.
It was Dillon’s 71st Truck Series start of his career dating back 10 years to 2009, where he made his Truck Series debut that year for Richard Childress at Iowa finishing 12th. He won the championship two years later in 2011, after collecting two wins, 10 top five finishes and 16 top 10s that year.
It was Dillon’s first Truck Series race since Atlanta Motor Speedway last year, where he drove the No. 20 Young’s Motorsports entry finishing 10th that day.
