Austin Dillon thrills Eldora Speedway's faithful as NASCAR returns to dirt track racing.
Austin Dillon, who started the race from the pole, regained the lead on Lap 151, slingshotting around Elliott Sadler to eventually build a three-second advantage before finishing with a 1.059-second margin of victory over runner-up Sam Hornish Jr.
Austin Dillon and seven other drivers finished on the lead lap, despite a mass wave-around for a restart on Lap 150 after the second caution of the race.
Austin Dillon is the first driver in series history to win the rookie of the year title in his first full season and the series championship the following year.
