Additionally, Dillon has made 11 NASCAR Xfinity Series starts at the track, earning two top-fives and seven top-10 finishes and leading 19 laps. His best NXS result was a second place effort in the 2016 spring race, where he won a $100,000 bonus from the Xfinity Dash 4 Cash program.

– Michigan Momentum: Dillon enters the 24th race of the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season hungry for some solid runs like last weekend’s race at Michigan International Speedway. For the majority of the race, the driver of the No. 42 Chevy raced up inside the top-15 after starting back in 25th, ultimately coming home with a 14th-place result – his best finish since the Coca Cola 600 at Charlotte back in May. 

– From the Drivers Seat: What about returning to Richmond Raceway for the second time this season excites you? 

“Richmond is a place I always look forward to coming to. I’ve got a lot of confidence there, have ran a lot of races, and have had some really good finishes. Earlier this year was one of our better races, our strategy didn’t really play out to our liking, but we had a pretty strong No. 42 Chevrolet. I’m excited to go back to this race track for the second time and build off of what we learned in our first race. After having a top-15 in Michigan, we’ve got some good momentum, so hopefully we can keep it rolling this weekend.”
