Scott was also the pole winner for the July race
Dillon settles for third after leading 155 laps RELATED: Full race results " Updated series standings SPARTA, Ky. -- From its pole-winning qualifying lap to triple-digit laps led, Ty Dillon 's No. 3 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet was the car to beat in Saturday's VisitMyrtleBeach.com 300 at Kentucky Speedway . After leading 155 of the race's 200 laps, the Richard Childress Racing No. 3 looked to have competition only in fellow rookie-of-the-year contender Chase Elliott . Yet as Elliott's No. 9 and Dillon's No. 3 fought side-by-side for the lead, it was Dillon's RCR teammate Brendan Gaughan who surprised them both by charging ahead. Brian Scott followed, moving ahead of Dillon and putting the driver with what seemed an ironclad grip on Victory Lane back to third. "This one definitely hurts," Dillon said. "I hate it for our Bass Pro Chevy guys. We had the night's dominant car and it was obvious that we really put it together as RCR and (Earnhardt Childress Racing engines) as a whole this weekend." The loss wasn't much easier for Scott , who earned his best finish of the season with the runner-up effort. "I think it was a toss-up between Ty and I, and he was a little better -- he was able to adjust his car in clean air where we were fighting with dirty air most of the race," Scott said. "At the end, I was proud of our guys to take four tires. I was surprised more cars didn't take four tires -- we had 50 laps on them and I was fighting a little bit loose … at the end it was too tight, probably needed one more round up on the track bar and we could've won this thing." RCR ended the night with all three of its full-time drivers in the top three. The finish shows the change the organization has seen since earlier this season, which saw Gaughan outside of the top 10 in all but two of the first 13 races, before his win at Road America . Second-place finisher Scott sat outside of the top 10 in seven of the first nine races this season. While Dillon frequented the top 10 earlier in the year, he didn't notch his first top-five finish until the 18th race of the season at Chicagoland Speedway . "We've all worked hard, we all realized we were pretty off in the beginning of the year and nobody was happy with it, nobody got complacent with it," Dillon said. "We fought hard. ECR stepped it up, and so did the guys at the race shop that don't get the credit; the guys behind the scenes, they stepped it up too." Even 22-year-old Cale Conley , who drove RCR's No. 33 Chevrolet in his ninth Nationwide Series start, finished in the top 10. With the clear addition of speed across the Richard Childress Racing fleet, the final laps at Kentucky came down to strategy, with the No. 3 on two fresh tires and the No. 2 and No. 62 on four fresh ones each. The race's eight cautions -- several of which landed in the race's closing 50 laps -- nudged both Dillon and Scott out of the running, and Gaughan into Victory Lane. "I think the series of cautions played against us … " Scott said. "I think we gave it some good restarts and got trapped on others. I wish I could do it over again, but I'm sure Ty feels the same way, and everybody but Brendan feels that way right now." Even without a trophy, Dillon's performance stands out among his record. His dominance surpassed his previous best of leading 130 laps in a NASCAR national series race in the Camping World Truck Series. His Indianapolis win earlier this year gave the driver his previous Nationwide Series best, with 24 laps out front. Even though it wasn't a win, Dillon's finish moved two points closer to Elliott in the points standings, and the driver continues to look forward to the contending for a title. "We don't ever give up, we don't ever let up," Dillon said. "I think that's kind of the RCR motto -- it starts with my grandfather and spreads through the whole company."

Late pass sends driver to second win of 2014 RELATED: Full race results " Updated series standings SPARTA, Ky. -- Brendan Gaughan capitalized on the opportunity to utilize the high line on the final restart of Saturday night's VisitMyrtleBeach.com 300 at Kentucky Speedway to win his second NASCAR Nationwide Series race of the season. Gaughan, with a three-wide pass, powered around leaders Chase Elliott and Ty Dillon in the closing laps and cleared his competition in Turn 1, allowing him to cruise to an eight-tenths of a second lead over Richard Childress Racing teammate Brian Scott . "I love my restarts," Gaughan said in Victory Lane. "It was an awesome restart. Shane (Wilson, crew chief) kept telling me that lap times were great when everyone did two and we did four (tires), so it took us a while to get back (toward the lead) there, but four Goodyear tires in the end were the difference." On the final restart of the night, Dillon and Elliott battled but forgot about the guy behind them. Gaughan, with a head of steam, used momentum to clear his competition with six laps to go and cruised to his second career series win, and first on an oval. He also won June's road-course race at Road America . Richard Childress Racing swept the top-three finishing positions with Scott second and Dillon finishing third after a dominating performance. Gaughan, 39, credited his Earnhardt Childress Racing engine and transmission for assisting him in his triumph over the much younger Elliott (18) and Dillon (22). "There are great race teams and great young race car drivers, but the old dog still has something left," said Gaughan. Scott was on the verge of netting his first career Nationwide victory, but settled for his best performance of the season after restarting sixth. "I thought it was the right call to take four tires at the end," Scott said. "I restarted sixth and got a good restart and got up to fourth and I thought we were going to win this race. But, unfortunately, we didn't get any long runs and our Shore Lodge Camaro was a little too tight." Dillon, who led 155 laps, said, "I'm sick for my guys. Our Bass Pros Chevy was top-notch. It's a good thing for confidence to lead all those laps, but this hurts for sure." Dillon's dominance would be challenged on Lap 171 when Cody Ware lost an engine. The fifth caution flag of the night proved to be a significant break for the leaders, as they avoided green flag pit stops. On pit road, Dillon exercised a two-tire stop with fuel with Chase Elliott , Michael McDowell and Elliott Sadler also on the same strategy. Racing resumed with Chase Elliott making a valiant effort to overtake the lead from Dillon. He was able to nip ahead of Dillon's No. 3 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet, when Eric McClure crashed in Turn 4. With 19 laps to go, Elliott fended off a challenge from Dillon on the initial restart, but his opportunity to stretch his lead would be short-lived, after Regan Smith made contact with Sam Hornish Jr . on Lap 184, sending him hard into the Turn 1 wall. A flawless restart from Elliott allowed the No. 9 NAPA Auto Parts Chevrolet to escape the hungry pack behind him. Again, Elliott's gap would be diminished by yet another caution for debris on Lap 190 -- which would prove the difference in the race. Leaving Kentucky, fourth place finisher Elliott holds a 20-point cushion over JR Motorsports teammate Regan Smith in the championship standings with six races remaining. Next up for the NASCAR Nationwide Series is a trip to Dover International Speedway on Sept. 27. Joey Logano is the defending champion.
