Rookie finishes seventh but gains little on Chase Elliott, Regan Smith RELATED: Play NASCAR Fantasy Live " Sign up for RaceView today JOLIET, Ill. – Ty Dillon closed the gap on the two drivers in front of him in the NASCAR Nationwide Series standings, but the Richard Childress Racing driver knows the gain was a slim one. With only seven races remaining, the opportunities are dwindling. The series returns to action Saturday, Sept. 20 with the VisitMyrtleBeach.com 300 at Kentucky Speedway (7:30 p.m, ESPNEWS). "Technically, we did what we needed to do, (we) beat the guys that are ahead of us in points, but we've got to do a lot better to get up there in the championship," Dillon said after finishing seventh in Saturday's Jimmy John’s Freaky Fast 300 at Chicagoland Speedway . Points leader Chase Elliott (JR Motorsports) finished 10th and now leads teammate Regan Smith , who finished eighth, by 18 points. Dillon trails the leader by 40. Elliott Sadler ( Joe Gibbs Racing ) and Brian Scott (RCR) both finished in the top-10 Saturday and remain fourth and fifth, respectively, in the standings. "We had speed all day, especially on restarts," Dillon said. "We could really go on restarts. But at the start of the race, our splitter kind of detached from the fascia on our front end and had a really bad flutter. Any time it would flutter (the car) would get really tight, so we had to come in and fix that and restart at the back I guess about 70 laps into the race. From there on, it was kind of a battle." Dillon worked his way back inside the top 10 and was running eighth following a restart on Lap 140. When Jeremy Clements brought out the caution at Lap 153, Dillon and his team, led by crew chief Danny Stockman Jr., opted for a fuel-only stop. As a result, he gained four positions to restart fourth. "(We) tried to hold everybody off," Dillon said. "I don't know if we finished sixth or seventh, we were side by side with (Sadler) at the line. ... Not a bad day for the adversity we had to come through." Trevor Bayne finished fifth, highest among the series' regulars. Sprint Cup Series drivers and a part-time Nationwide Series driver in Ryan Blaney swept the top four spots, with Kevin Harvick scoring the victory. It was the 19th top-10 of the season for Dillon, who earned his first career NNS win earlier this year at Indianapolis Motor Speedway . But Elliott, like Dillon a Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender, has three wins and 20 top-10s, while Smith has one win and 22 top-10s. Neither of the JR Motorsports drivers has shown any indication of faltering down the stretch. "We've been kind of battling from behind all year," Dillon admitted. "... Getting behind early in the race is nothing new to us; we're used to fighting from behind. "Hopefully things will start going our way and we run to our full potential."

Kyle Busch dominated early, but cautions changed the course of the race RELATED: Play NASCAR Fantasy Live " Sign up for RaceView today JOLIET, Ill. -- In a race that Kyle Busch had dominated, his 141 laps led coming in the first 154 laps of Saturday's Jimmy John's FreakyFast 300, a late-race caution added some spice to the NASCAR Nationwide Series race. Six laps later, the real shakeup occurred. Consecutive yellow flags on Lap 153 and Lap 166 turned a rather A-B-C type of event into a free-for-all, with Kevin Harvick pulling away for the win as the field continually jumbled itself behind him. The caution on Lap 153, the fifth of the day, saw every possible scenario unfold. Three cars ( Brian Scott , Chris Buescher and Aric Almirola ) stayed out, some cars pitted for fuel only (including Ty Dillon and Brendan Gaughan ), some took two tires (including Harvick) and some took four (Busch, Trevor Bayne ). The yellow that fell on Lap 166 scrambled those strategies even further, as those who saved tires had to pit frenetically to put them on, and those that considered a long green-flag run were left disappointed. "We thought it was better to save a set and try to do something with them later," said Regan Smith , who pitted for four tires and came out 16th. He finished eighth. "The problem is that next caution came too early and didn't really allow us to utilize them." Still, it was a somewhat satisfying ending for Smith, whose No. 7 Chevrolet only ran in the top-10 after gaining significant ground on pit road. What made the finish even more palatable is seeing JR Motorsports teammate and series points leader Chase Elliott finishing two spots behind him in 10th. Elliott's day was the exact opposite of Smith's. His car ran up front all day and led two laps, but misfired on pit road late. There was a miscommunication on the Lap 153 pit stop, and the No. 9 team put on four tires when the call was for two. "We struggled all day. We'd have a good run, bad run, good run, bad run," Smith said. "(Crew chief) Ryan (Pemberton) made the right call and bailed us out today. I messed up at the end (by losing a spot), and I cost us points. Kind of frustrated about that, but we fought hard and what looked like was going to be a big points loss turned into us gaining a few." Bayne made four tires work well, but he was one of the few to do so. Harvick won the race after taking two tires, and Bayne lost ground early and nearly couldn't catch back up after the final caution lasted eight laps while crews cleaned the track. In fact, the driver of the No. 6 didn't climb into the top five until the final few laps to finish fifth, his best effort since a third-place showing on Aug. 2 at Iowa Speedway . "I was glad to be on four tires," Bayne said. "We did lose a lot of track position, so I was hoping it would pay off. The hardest part was watching all those laps go by as they put the SpeedyDry down, and you're watching valuable laps click away that you need to get that position." Not everyone who took four tires was as pleased as Bayne, though. Busch went from running in the lead to restarting 16th on Lap 159. The following short green-flag run slowed his run, and although he would finish third, it wasn't a happy top-five effort. "We knew we needed to come down and get tires, and obviously four was the wrong call," Busch said. "It put us behind and I fought my butt out there and could only get to third. … I don't know."

Brian Scott says the on-track contact between he and Alex Tagliani probably cost him a shot at the winning the race.
NASCAR, Front Row Motorsports, Kyle Busch Motorsports and Martinsville Speedway to pay tribute DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- NASCAR, Front Row Motorsports, Kyle Busch Motorsports and Martinsville Speedway announced today they will honor 2015 NASCAR Hall of Fame Inductee Wendell Scott , the first African-American driver to win a NASCAR premier series event, with a series of tributes during the Martinsville race weekend from Oct. 24-26. Front Row Motorsports will pay homage to Scott , also the first African-American driver to race full-time in NASCAR’s premier series, with a full throwback paint scheme on its No. 34 Ford driven by David Ragan, reminiscent of the blue No. 34 that he drove to Victory Lane for his first NASCAR premier series victory at Jacksonville Speedway on Dec. 1, 1963. Ragan is one of just three drivers to win in the No. 34, and the first since Scott . "It's going to be cool to honor Wendell Scott at his home track with his family," said Ragan. "I got to drive a tribute scheme for Ned Jarrett a while back, and it's a tribute to the history of our sport that I get to honor Mr. Scott as an inductee, the last driver to win in the No. 34 before I did. I'm a fan of our sport’s history and have a real appreciation for it, so it's special to be able to bring that paint scheme back for a weekend." In addition, Kyle Busch Motorsports will change the number of Darrell Wallace Jr.'s truck from 54 to 34 in honor of Scott . A NASCAR Drive for Diversity graduate, Wallace became the first African-American to win a NASCAR national series race since Scott ’s historic 1963 triumph when he captured the checkered flag in last season’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Kroger 200 at Martinsville. "It's an honor to run the No. 34 Toyota Tundra at Martinsville," said Wallace. "I got my first win at Martinsville and the historical significance of that win and to be so close to Wendell Scott's hometown was a really cool bonus to getting my first win. The Scott family has followed my career since I ran the NASCAR Drive for Diversity program for Rev Racing and I've kept a relationship with the family over the years. Thanks to Joe Gibbs Racing, Kyle Busch Motorsports, Toyota and NASCAR for allowing me to run the No. 34 at Martinsville. I'm pumped to get back there and hope to get another victory." Adding to the celebration, Martinsville Speedway and the NHOF will host members of the Scott family during the race weekend and offer special Q&A opportunities for fans on-site. "Wendell Scott faced numerous adversities throughout his racing career. At the end of the day though, he persevered and overcame all odds," said Clay Campbell, president of Martinsville Speedway. "That perseverance serves as an inspiration today and as a testament to that, he was inducted to the NASCAR Hall of Fame." A trailblazer whose legacy extends to the present day, Scott was the 1959 NASCAR Virginia Sportsman champion and won over 100 races at local tracks prior to starting his NASCAR premier series career. The Danville, Virginia native served three years in the U.S. Army during World War II where he honed his skills in the motor pool. In 13 years of NASCAR premier series competition, Scott made 495 starts (35th on the all-time list), accumulating 20 top-five and 147 top-10 finishes. He passed away in 1990, at the age of 69. NASCAR currently awards scholarships in Scott ’s name through the United Negro College Fund, the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities and the Thurgood Marshall Scholarship Fund. The Wendell Scott Trailblazer Award is awarded to a diverse or female driver in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series who has demonstrated significant contributions on and off the track. Current NASCAR D4D driver and last year’s NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Nevada state champion Jay Beasley was the 2013 award recipient. In addition, NASCAR has designated the first race weekend in March as a time to remember Wendell Scott's legacy during a week that marks his first career start. Cars in all series run a decal in honor of his accomplishments within the sport. The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Goody’s ® Headache Relief Shot ® 500 will run Sunday, Oct. 26 at 1:30 p.m. ET on ESPN. The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Kroger 200 will run Saturday, Oct. 25 at 1:30 p.m. on FOX Sports 1. Both races will also air on MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, with additional coverage on NASCAR.com.
