JOLIET, Ill. (AP) -- ARCA points leader Ty Dillon raced to his third victory of the season Saturday night, winning the Messina Wildlife Animal Stopper 150 at the Chicagoland Speedway.

With 15 laps to go, Chad Hackenbracht had a nine-second lead and appeared ready to pull away, but he blew a tire and hit the wall with his car rolling to a stop in the pits with flames shooting from underneath. That opened the way for Dillon.

Cris Buescher took second and Josh Richards was third. The race had been scheduled for 5 p.m., but after a thunderstorm hit the speedway officials, decided to run it after the featured Nationwide Series race instead of before.
