Austin Dillon and Richard Childress Racing’s No. 3 AdvoCare Chevrolet team finished fourth in Sunday afternoon’s NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Iowa Speedway, marking their sixth top-five finish through the season’s first 10 races. Dillon started the black No. 3 Chevrolet from the sixth position and worked his way into the second position in the first 100 laps of the race before a large piece of debris stuck to the front grille of his car, causing water and oil temperatures to rise. In order to fix the problem, the Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender dropped back to the sixth position and aligned the nose of his Chevrolet against the back bumper of the No. 2 OneMain Financial Chevrolet in an attempt to remove the debris. The caution flag was displayed shortly thereafter, and following a trip down pit road on lap 115 for four Goodyear Tires and Sunoco Green E15 fuel, Dillon restarted from the fifth position. During the latter half of the race, he struggled with a loose-handling Chevrolet, but did not fall outside of the top five in the running order and was able to cross the finish line in the fourth position. He remains third in the Nationwide Series driver championship point standings.  Start – 6                Finish – 4           Laps Led – 0                 Points – 3                               AUSTIN DILLON: “We keep knocking out top-five finishes and that is exactly what we need to do in order to stay in the points race. We finished fourth and we were able to build up our notebook so that when we come back to Iowa Speedway in the Nationwide Series we will have setup information that will help us.”
