LONG POND, Pa. (AP) -- Austin Dillon pulled away on the final restart to win the Truck Series race on Saturday at Pocono Raceway.

Dillon raced to his first Truck victory of the season. His win came a week after his brother, Ty, won the Nationwide Series race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Dillon eluded Clint Bowyer and the rest of the field on the final restart of a caution-filled end to the race.

Johnny Sauter, Joey Coulter, Bowyer and Ryan Blaney completed the top five. Kyle Larson led from the pole for an early part of the race until his truck suffered engine issues and he faded to 18th.

Bowyer was driving for John Wes Townley, who was held out of all racing this weekend following a hard crash Friday.
