Welcome Back Champ: This weekend at the Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway Dirt Track, Young’s Motorsports welcomes 2011 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion Austin Dillon as the driver of the No. 20 Chevrolet Silverado RST.
Sponsor Intel: Dillon will pilot the No. 20 Chevrolet Silverado RST with support from K&L Ready Mix.
K&L Ready Mix is a mid-level ready-mix concrete supplier in Northwest Ohio.
Founded in 1957, we began our journey hauling construction aggregates for several years until we felt we had enough knowledge of local aggregates, we joined the concrete industry.
Our six concrete plants were strategically placed so that we could overlap our coverage area, making it easier for more than any one plant to service the same area or increase plant production on large-scale jobs.
This allows us to batch concrete at multiple plants for the same job if necessary or focus our services to local customers out of multiple locations should it be required.
Our resources are mostly locally purchased, with multiple locations able to utilize the same materials in an effort to keep our products consistent from one mix to the next.

Austin Dillon Pre-Race Quote:
On Bristol Motor Speedway Dirt: “Bristol Dirt is a fun race for the mechanics, crew chiefs and engineers because it’s just an exciting way to race to bring everything back to your short track roots and have the chance to work on the cars during the breaks.
“Everyone is slinging stuff and trying to find some speed and exploring how to improve the car in ways that you wouldn’t normally get to go about it when you’re at a normal NASCAR race. I’m looking forward to running the NASCAR Truck Series race with Young’s Motorsports. it will be good to get a little bit more experience with the track and the transitions it takes.”
