FORT WORTH, Texas -- After 50 laps, Ty Dillon leads the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series WinStar World Casino 400 at Texas Motor Speedway.

Dillon, who drives the No. 3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet, began in the third position and took the lead over No. 31 James Buescher in the 33rd lap.

Buescher, a Plano native, began fourth and took the lead from No. 6 Justin Lofton in the 27th lap. Buescher held first place until Dillon overtook him after a pit stop.

Loftin began on the pole and remained out front for the first 26 laps.

No. 11 Todd Bodine suffered an engine failure in the 32nd lap and was forced to leave the race. The veteran driver of the Red Horse Racing Toyota has the most wins of anyone in this year’s Truck Series at TMS with six first place finishes.

Rounding out the top five after 50 were Buescher, Lofton, No. 2 Brendan Gaughan, and No. 30 Nelson Piquet Jr.
