SPARTA, Ky.

Ty Dillon overtook Kyle Busch with 26 laps remaining and went on to win the NASCAR Truck Series race Thursday night at Kentucky Speedway.

Dillon, grandson of team owner Richard Childress, started 22nd and drove the Chevy with the iconic No. 3 made famous by seven-time Sprint Cup champion Dale Earnhardt through the field for his second career Truck victory and first in four starts at Kentucky. He also derailed opening bids by defending Sprint Cup Series champion Brad Keselowski and fellow Cup star Busch for a weekend sweep on the 1.5-mile oval.

Keselowski overcame midrace issues to finish second, while Busch edged defending Truck Series champion James Buescher for third. Rookie Ryan Blaney, who started on the pole, was fifth.

Ryan is the son of Sprint Cup driver and Hartford native Dave Blaney.

Busch appeared headed to his second victory in three years at the track before his No. 51 Toyota lost grip. Dillon pounced and opened up a 21/2-second lead and coasted, adding another Kentucky trophy for Richard Childress Racing.
