The 20-year-old Dillon won from the pole, becoming the second-youngest driver to win a truck series race behind Kyle Busch.

It was the first time the black number 3 won in any series since the Dale Earnhardt’s death in 2001.

The grandson of longtime NASCAR owner Richard Childress kept him truck clean and clear of all accidents.

The top four in the points standings, Todd Bodine, Aric Almirola, Timothy Peters and Ron Hornaday, Jr. all experienced issues and accidents which halted their bids to try and catch Dillon.

Johnny Sauter finished second followed by Matt Crafton, Ken Schrader and James Buescher.

Dillon is the first rookie to win the pole for three straight races.

Dillon led for 187 straight laps and was cruising to victory when a caution forced a late restart. But he held off Sauter for the win.
