(SPARTA, Ky.) — Ty Dillon held off Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch on Thursday night to win the Truck Series race at Kentucky Motor Speedway.
Dillon became the youngest to win at the track ever, holding off two of NASCAR’s biggest names.
“To beat Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski, two of the best on four wheels right now, the best in NASCAR they’re winning everything right now, I look up to those guys and I want to be like them one day,” Dillon said. “To be able to beat them was really special.”
Busch was crusing through the race until he lost the grip on his tires. Dillon would pass Busch on lap 125 and not look back.
“Thought we had a really good truck, best we’ve run at Kentucky in a really long time,” Busch said after taking home third.
Keselowski was 12th with 50 laps to go and did what he could for a second-place finish.
“Put on a great effort,” Keselowski said. “Just came up short to Ty.”
James Buescher finished in fourth and Ryan Blaney rounded out the top-five after winning the pole.
