LOUDON, N.H. (AP) - Austin Dillon led 80 laps and won Saturday at New Hampshire Motorspeedway in the milestone 500th NASCAR Truck Series race.

Dillon won for the first time this season in series, to go with three wins in the Xfinity Series. Dillon was dominant and won from the pole in the No. 33 Chevrolet. He won for the seventh time in 67 career races.

Two-time defending Truck Series champion Matt Crafton was second, followed by Johnny Sauter, Timothy Peters and John Hunter Nemechek.

Points leader Erik Jones was seventh.

Kyle Busch was 11th as one of the top drivers in the 20-year history of the series faded down the stretch after leading 67 laps. He had a late tire rub that knocked the No. 51 Toyota out of contention.
