BLADEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Austin Dillon passed NASCAR Camping World Truck Series points leader Johnny Sauter on lap 127 and cruised to his first win of the season at the Lucas Deep Clean 200 at Nashville Superspeedway on Friday night.
Dillon, the grandson of NASCAR team owner Richard Childress, was able to close in on Sauter and pass him with 23 laps to go in turn four, and didn't look back.
Dillon, who was the pole-sitter, took two tires on the last pit stop while Sauter took four.
Timothy Peters finished third, Nelson Piquet Jr. was the highest finishing rookie in fourth place, and fellow rookie Parker Kligerman rounded out the top five.
With the win, Dillon pulled 18 points behind Sauter in the points race.
