SPARTA, Ky. (AP) -- Austin and Ty Dillon will be squaring off against each other for the first time at the national level in the Trucks Series race at Kentucky Speedway.

Ty Dillon will be making his Trucks debut in Saturday night's race. Older brother Austin is in his second full season and holds a two-point lead over James Buescher in the Trucks Series standings.

The Dillons are the grandson's of NASCAR team owner Richard Childress. They said their grandfather would be flying in from the Sprint Cup race at Dover to watch them.

They said they've always admired how brothers Kurt and Kyle Busch made it to the top of NASCAR.
