Ty Dillon passed Kyle Busch for the lead on a restart with 24 laps to go, led the rest of the way and won Sunday’s Lilly Diabetes 250 NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The victory was the first of the 22-year-old Richard Childress Racing driver’s NNS career. The 24 laps he led were the only laps he led during the 100-lap race.

“The car started getting a little tight, but we had speed all weekend,” Dillon said. “We got out front, and she unleashed.”

In getting the victory, Dillon collected a $100,000 bonus by way of the Dash 4 Cash program.

Busch finished second, .833 seconds back.

“Had a shot at it,” Busch said, “but I never am very good at restarts through Turn 1 here for some reason. It wasn’t meant to be so we go home second.”

Matt Kenseth finished third while Kevin Harvick, who led a race-best 33-laps, was fourth.

“I want to thank everybody from JR Motorsports for giving us the fastest car in the field today,” Harvick, whose team gambled by pitting on the final caution, said. “Didn’t capitalize on it.”

Fifth was Joey Logano, who led 21 laps.

“We were better than the 3 car (Dillon) when we were in the lead,” Logano said.

Rounding out the top 10 were Paul Menard, Brian Scott, Kyle Larson, Trevor Bayne and points leader Regan Smith.
