BOWMANVILLE, Ontario (AP) - Chase Elliott wrecked Ty Dillon on the last lap Sunday to win the NASCAR Truck Series race at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

Elliott, the son of former Sprint Cup driver Bill Elliott, plowed into Dillon on the final turn on the 2.459-mile road course to take the lead and went on to his first series victory. At 17 years, 9 months, 4 days, he became the youngest winner in series history.

Dillon dropped to 17th, the last car on the lead lap, in the series' first race in Canada and first on a road course since 2000 at Watkins Glen.

Chad Hackenbracht was second, followed by Miguel Paludo, Darrell Wallace Jr., Ron Hornaday Jr., Max Papis, Ross Chastain, Timothy Peters, James Buescher and Matt Crafton.

Crafton leads the series standings, 47 points ahead of Buescher. Dillon is third, 63 points behind Crafton.

Ryan Blaney was the previous youngest winner, taking the Iowa race last September at 18 years, 8 months, 15 days.
