In his second year on the Cup circuit, Dillon will need to race his way into the all-star race. The quickest 10-lap average coupled with his fast single lap makes him a favorite to advance.

Austin Dillon finished 10th in the Food City 500 and earned his best finish of the 2015 season. He was one of six top-10 finishers who achieved that honor.

Bristol was a topsy-turvy race, but that will happen on short tracks. Momentum has been built on less and Dillon should be watched closely at Richmond.

Sprint Cup regular Austin Dillon tops the speed chart in the Final Practice session for the XFINITY Series Drive To Stop Diabetes 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

The No. 33 Ruud Chevrolet Camaro driver ran a fast lap of 124.412 mph. No. 54 Denny Hamlin, No. 18 Daniel Suarez, No. 60 Chris Buescher and No. 2 Brian Scott round out the top-five of the 39 cars out on the track. The No. 74 Dodge driven by Mike Harmon was the slowest in the final practice session.

In his rookie season last year, Austin Dillon experienced one high and one low. He nearly cracked the top 10 in his first attempt last spring with an 11th, but he slipped to 28th in the fall.

Dillon qualified 26th for both races, which shows some consistency. If he can build on that, he could become a decent value in his sophomore season.

Before retiring with an electrical problem on lap 330 of 500 at Martinsville last week, Austin Dillon had been running at the end of 42 consecutive races. That was the longest active streak in the series.

Equally impressive, that was only the second time in his 55-race career that Dillon failed to be running at the end of a race. His previous DNF came as the result of an accident at Talladega in 2013.

Austin Dillon is still seeking his first top-10 of the 2015 season, but that does not mean he has been a bad value. Three of his six efforts this year ended in results of 14th through 16th and he has one more top-20 to his credit.

Two of his solid runs came on unrestricted, intermediate speedways with a 20th at Vegas and a 16th at Auto Club. Since the similarly-configured, 1.5- and two-mile tracks dominate the schedule, that is good news for fantasy owners who want a consistent value.

A faulty seal and not a blown engine caused Austin Dillon’s Chevrolet to smoke in the final moments of NASCAR’s first practice session, according to a tweet by Bob Pockrass. He will not need to change engines.

Dillon’s 15th-best speed was enough to make him an interesting dark horse and now that he will not have to start in the back of the pack, he remains fantasy relevant.

Austin Dillon blew an engine in the final minutes of the first practice session at Martinsville. He was 15th fastest at the time.

Martinsville is a rhythm track and not generally hard on engines. Still, this will hurt Dillon’s handicap for the STP 500 and makes him a risky fantasy proposition.

Austin Dillon’s second start at Auto Club Speedway is almost identical to last year. In 2014 he rolled off the grid 20th; this weekend he claimed the 21st position.

Last year, Dillon picked up nine spots and finished 11th. If he can pick up an identical number of places this week and finish 12th he will be worth his salary cap in most games.
