Austin Dillon won the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 NASCAR Cup Series race at Texas Motor Speedway on a recorded breaking hot day that would see the temperature in the car reach 140+. A 10-car melee brought out the red flag at the start of the final stage. Dillion would gamble on the final caution with 28 laps remaining by taking only 2 tires. The win is his 1st win of the year. Dillon would seek aid in the infield medical center after a short celebration in victory lane after displaying signs of heat exhaustion.

“Not bad for a silver spoon kid, right,” Dillon joked after climbing out of his No. 3 RCR Chevrolet, a reference to his upbringing in NASCAR’s brand of royalty and comment last year by Alex Bowman.
