Dillon wins; Wisconsin native Sauter takes second in Truck Series race at Iowa
NEWTON, Iowa (AP) -- Austin Dillon held off Johnny Sauter in a green-white-checkered finish and picked up first career win at Sunday's NASCAR Trucks Series race in Iowa.
The 20-year-old Dillon won from the pole, becoming the second-youngest driver to win a truck series race behind Kyle Busch. The grandson of longtime NASCAR owner Richard Childress kept his car clean while a number of top drivers ran into trouble.
The top four in the points standings -- Todd Bodine, Aric Almirola, Timothy Peters and Ron Hornaday, Jr. -- all experienced issues that hampered their shots at catching Dillon.
Sauter finished second for his third top-5 finish this season. He was followed by Matt Crafton, Ken Schrader and James Buescher.
