Richard Childress Racing announced on Tuesday that Austin Dillon will be behind the wheel of the No. 33 Grainger Chevrolet in the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Texas Motor Speedway. Dillon has never finished worse than sixth in his previous four starts on the oval, earning a best finish of third in April 2013.
“It’s been a while since I’ve run a NASCAR Nationwide Series race, so I can’t wait to get to Texas Motor Speedway,” Dillon commented. “I’ve had so much fun running at Texas in the past, and we’ve had quite a bit of success running Nationwide Series races there. I’ve never won at Texas though, so it will be fun to try to win there this weekend. My brother is also in the Nationwide Series race and it’s always fun when I can race against him.”
This will mark Dillon’s first appearance in the Nationwide Series since Homestead-Miami Speedway in November 2013, where he finished 12th and clinched the championship.
