Ty Dillon kicked-off NASCAR’s Kentucky weekend in fine style, passing Kyle Busch in the final laps of the Unoh 225 to score his second NASCAR Camping World Truck Series win of the season. The win boosted Dillon to third in the CWTS standings, behind Matt Crafton and Jeb Burton.
Adding to Dillon’s satisfaction is the fact that reigning NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski ultimately finished second ahead of Busch.
“To beat Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski, two of the best drivers on four wheels right now, is pretty special,” said Dillon. “I want to be like them some day.”
Speaking of reigning champions, 2012 Camping World Truck Series champion James Buescher finished fourth with Ryan Blaney surviving a brush with the wall while racing with Busch to finish fifth.
NASCAR’s visit to the Bluegrass State continues with tonight’s Nationwide Series Feed the Children 300 followed by the Quaker State 400 Sprint Cup race on Saturday evening.
