He also has two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts at the track with a best finish of 20th in 2011. Dirt Tracking and Double Duty … Dillon’s 2013 Speedweeks actually started on Feb. 12 at Volusia Speedway Park, where he and his brother, Ty, began a week-long stint racing dirt Modifieds as part of the 41st annual University of Northwestern Ohio DIRTCar Nationals.

Dillon has been a long time aficionado of the movie Top Gun and has a series of “Maverick” themed helmets that he races with.

Is it a competitive benefit to you to run both the NASCAR Nationwide Series and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at Daytona International Speedway because you get more track time? “I think it’s helpful. By running the NASCAR Nationwide Series race on Saturday, I can gather good information that I can use on Sunday, especially as it relates to pit strategies and drafting. It’s good to be out there drafting and gaining experience and learning how people drive and run around in the pack. Anytime you can see how people make a move to gain positions it’s nice because you can see how people do that and try to learn from that.” Have you had a chance to drive the new Camaro and have you noticed much of a difference in the new race car? “It’s a faster car. It’s a little bit of a different feel out there but not much. I think the overall balance may be a little bit better, so that’s a good thing, actually. Because it’s faster it’s going to be very helpful to go out and race against all of these other competitors.” -Richard Childress Racing PR
