John Hunter Nemechek has grabbed his first career victory by capitalizing in the Truck Series race at Chicagoland Speedway when others didn't have the fuel to make it to the finish.

The second-generation NASCAR driver was running second behind Kyle Larson when Larson ran out of gas two laps from the finish. With Larson coasting on the bottom of the track, Nemechek cruised past him to grab his first national series victory.

Nemechek turned 18 in June and drives for a team fielded by his father, journeyman Joe Nemechek.

Tyler Reddick finished second and was followed by Timothy Peters and Daniel Suarez.

Johnny Sauter was fifth, points leader Erik Jones was sixth and Kyle Larson faded to seventh after dominating the race.
