Austin Dillon Earns a Sixth-Place Finish at the "Monster Mile"Austin Dillon drove Richard Childress Racing's No. 3 American Ethanol Chevrolet to a sixth-place finish at Dover International Speedway on Saturday afternoon. The Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender started Saturday afternoon's NASCAR Nationwide Series race from the 11thposition and raced his way into the fourth position before a lap-40 competition caution provided the Danny Stockman-led team an opportunity to pit. Dillon's black and green No. 3 Chevrolet was serviced with four Goodyear tires, Sunoco Green E15 fuel and a chassis adjustment designed to combat a loose-handling condition. When green-flag racing resumed at lap-45, Dillon was scored in the seventh position and again began moving forward in the running order. He raced his way into the fourth position before the final caution flag of the race was displayed to the field on lap 152. Although several teams opted to stay on the race track, Dillon was instructed to make a trip down pit road for four tires and a splash of fuel. Restarting in the eighth position with 43 laps remaining in the 200-lap event, Dillon raced his way into the sixth position before the checkered flag was displayed but could not advance any further in the running order as a tight-handling condition developed on his No. 3 Chevrolet. Dillon remains third in the Nationwide Series driver's championship point standings but gained ground on the leaders, now sitting 14 markers shy of the lead and two points behind the second-place contender.
Start - 11 Finish - 6 Laps Led - 0 Points - 3
AUSTIN DILLON QUOTE:"The No. 3 American Ethanol Chevrolet was really good this weekend in race trim. We took off at the beginning of the race and made it up to third. We were a little bit loose early in the race but the car tightened up a lot after our final pit stop and it made it hard to pass. Overall it was a great day for us, and a great points day so it's hard to complain. I'm really proud of my little brother Ty for his performance today in his Nationwide Series debut."
Ty Dillon Earns Top-10 Finish in NASCAR Nationwide Series Debut
Ty Dillon made his NASCAR Nationwide Series debut at Dover International Speedway and raced to an impressive eighth-place finish. Dillon posted the third-quickest time in Saturday morning's qualifying session. After taking the green-flag, the Richard Childress Racing driver was scored in the sixth position when NASCAR officials displayed a competition caution at lap 40. Crew chief Ernie Cope directed Dillon to pit road for four fresh Goodyear tires, fuel and a chassis adjustment to combat a loose-handling condition on the No. 33 Chevrolet. Dillon restarted in the 13th position on lap 45 and maintained position through the halfway point of the 200-lap affair. The 2011 ARCA Racing Series champion moved into the 11th position but fell one lap down to the leaders just past the race's halfway point. Following a routine green-flag pit stop on lap 116, a caution flag slowed the field and positioned the No. 33 South Point Hotel & Casino Chevrolet ninth for the ensuing restart. Dillon held onto the ninth-place position and was awarded the Lucky Dog Award, placing the team back on the lead lap. Dillon improved one position, to eighth, in the final stages of the race to claim a top-10 finish in his Nationwide Series debut. The No. 33 team remains fifth in the Nationwide Series owner's point championship standings after earning the top-10 finish.
