NCWTS: Austin Dillon Wins UNOH 175 at New Hampshire

Austin Dillon captured the victory on Saturday at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway in his No. 33 Rheem Chevrolet for GMS Racing. Dillon started the event on the pole after breaking the track record in the final round of knockout qualifying. The win will give the North Carolina native his seventh career victory in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Matt Crafton finished the day in the runner-up position behind the wheel of the No. 88 Menards Toyota for ThorSport Racing. Crafton had some work to do when the green flag waved after qualifying 11th for the race. The California native did not let that stop him as he quickly worked his way up towards the front despite not leading a single lap. Crafton will leave the New Hampshire Motor Speedway with his 10th top five finish of the season.

Johnny Sauter will leave the New Hampshire Motor Speedway with the third-place finishing position. Sauter started the afternoon in the 23rd position after losing a tire in the second round of knockout qualifying. The 37-year old now has seven top five and 13 top 10 finishes in the Camping World Truck Series this season.

Kyle Busch had an up and down day in his No. 51 Toyota Tundra. The Las Vegas native led two different times for a total of 67 laps. Busch ran into a little problem late in the race when he made slight contact with the outside wall. The contact was hard enough to cause a tire rub that forced him to make a late pit stop. He will walk away with an 11th place finish.

Erik Jones will continue leading the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series standings by seven points over Matt Crafton. Tyler Reddick will go into Las Vegas sitting in third after a 15th place finish at New Hampshire on Saturday. Johnny Sauter and Daniel Hemric round out the top five.

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will head out west for the Rhino Linings 350K at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Coverage will begin at 10:00 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Sports Go. The Motor Racing Network will carry the live radio broadcast.
