Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(BOWMANVILLE, Ontario) — It may not have been quite how he pictured it, but Chase Elliott won the NASCAR Camping World Truck Chevrolet Silvernado 250 on Sunday.

The 18-year-old Elliott won his first race ever on Sunday, something his father is sure to be proud of. Chase is the son of NASCAR Sprint Cup Driver Bill Elliott.

On the last lap of the race, Elliott wrecked Ty Dillon, which launched him to victory lane.

“We only have so many shots to win these things. I really hate to win them like that, I really do,” Elliott said after the race. “That’s not how I race and that’s never been how I’ve raced before. I had a shot. I was up next to Ty and I knew he was going to try and chop me off. I tried to make up the difference. …Sometimes you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do to get to Victory Lane.”

Chad Hackenbracht finished second followed by Miguel Paludo, Darrell Wallace Jr., and Ron Hornaday Jr.
