Ty Dillon passed Kyle Busch with 26 laps remaining then led Brad Keselowski by more than five seconds at the finish line to win Thursday night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Kentucky Speedway.
It is Dillon’s first win of the season at a track where older brother Austin swept both Nationwide races last season.
“To beat Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski is pretty special,” Ty Dillon said.
Busch led for 42 laps and looked to be the man to beat until his Toyota became loose after making adjustments during his last pit stop.
“I was loose before the two tire stop, then we came in and tried to tighten it up and make it better, but still loose,” Kyle Busch said. “When we tested here, it was like clockwork at 9:15, the track goes loose. I don’t know. I can’t believe we messed up like that. “
James Buescher finished fourth and pole sitter Ryan Blaney fifth.
Dillon moves to third in the 2013 Truck Series point standings behind Matt Crafton and Jeb Burton with the next race scheduled for July 13th at Iowa Speedway.
