Austin Dillon qualified 15th for the Folds of Honor Quik Trip 500. It is the second consecutive Atlanta Cup race for which he qualified among the top 15.
In his third start on this track, Dillon is still seeking his first lead lap finish. He was 19th in 2013 and 24th last year, but one lap off the pace each time. With track position, he could achieve that goal if the cautions wave at the right time Feb 27 - 9:58 PM

Sprint Cup regular (No. 3 Chevrolet) Austin Dillon wins the Coors Light Pole Award for the Alert Today Florida 300 with a lap of 47.306 seconds, 190.251 mph.

This is the No. 33 Rheem Chevrolet Camaro driver's 11th pole in 79 NASCAR XFINITY Series races. This is his second pole in five NXS races at Daytona. Justin Marks (second) posted his first top-10 start of 2015 and his first at Daytona International Speedway.

Austin Dillon did not win Rookie of the Year honors in 2014 and failed to earn as many top-10s as most experts expected at the beginning of the year, but he was perfect in one regard. Dillon was running at the end of every race he started.

The only way to improve in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series is to log laps. Dillon was not only running at the end of every race last year, but he finished on the lead lap 23 times and that is going to be a catalyst for improved performance in 2015.

Austin Dillon got an early start on his Speedweeks – and a successful one, too.

The second-year Sprint Cup driver for Richard Childress Racing won from the pole position in a U.M.P. Modified event last night at the DIRTcar Nationals in Barberville, Florida. His younger brother, RCR XFINITY Series driver Ty Dillon, finished third in the same event behind Austin and runner-up Nick Hoffman following a green-white-checkered finish. Dillon will begin preparing for his first Sprint Unlimited appearance with practice on Friday before Saturday night’s 75-lap exhibition race at Daytona.

Kyle Larson, Justin Allgaier, and Austin Dillon were all lined up in the Saturday morning practice session for the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500k. Larson had the 12th-quickest 10-lap average with Allgaier 13th, and Dillon 14th.

It took too long for the second- and third-place freshman in the standings to catch up to Larson’s performance and make this into a Rookie of the Year battle, but their late season surge makes them interesting fantasy picks.

Austin Dillon and Ty Dillon qualified within one position of each other on Friday. Austin rolls off the grid 25th with Ty in 26th. If fantasy players think that was a fluke, they also ended Saturday morning’s practice nose-to-tail. Austin was 26th in practice with Ty 27th.

That makes Ty a much better value than Austin because of his lower salary cap and lack of previous starts in checkbox games. Look for both drivers to finish near one another on Sunday as well.

Besides driving his regular No. 3 Chevrolet SS in Sunday's Sprint Cup race at Texas Motor Speedway (TMS), Austin Dillon is entered in the Nationwide Series event on Saturday.

In four Nationwide Series starts at TMS, he has never finished worst than sixth, earning his best finish of third, after starting third, in April 2013. In addition to Nationwide Series competition, he has three Sprint Cup Series starts at TMS and four Camping World Truck Series starts. He has earned two top-five finishes, one pole award and has led 76 laps, acquiring a third-place average starting position and a 14th-place average finish position in Truck Series competition.-Richard Childress Racing

Rookies are not supposed to be great on plate tracks because veteran drivers do not want to race with them, which makes Austin Dillon’s three top-15s this season at Talladega and Daytona even more notable.

The odds would seem to be highly against Dillon finishing the season out with a top-15 streak, but Ricky Stenhouse Jr. managed to the feat last year as a rookie—so it can be done. In games where Dillon is moderately priced, he should be regarded as one of this week’s best values.

Austin Dillon earned a 15th-place finish after starting fifth in May.

He subbed for Tony Stewart in the Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet at Talladega Superspeedway last year and was in position to win at the restrictor-plate track, but was involved in a multi-car crash in the closing laps of the event and posted a 26th-place finish. He also has two starts in the NASCAR Nationwide Series and two starts in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.-Richard Childress Racing

Austin Dillon (No. 3 Chevrolet SS) has the best 10-lap consecutive average speed in final practice for the Sprint Cup Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The average speed of 186.849 mph was best of the 28 cars that ran 10 consecutive laps on the track for this final practice session. No. 88 Dale Earnhardt Jr., No. 4 Kevin Harvick, No. 27 Paul Menard and No. 48 Jimmie Johnson are the rest of the top five on this list.

Austin Dillon and Kyle Larson both failed to advance to the final round of qualification on Friday, but the driver of the No. 3 scored a psychological victory. He qualified 16th and will line up one row ahead of Larson in 18th.

Larson has been much stronger in race trim than his rookie rival, but Dillon has finished closer to him on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks than most other course types. Fantasy players should expect Dillon to finish close to where he starts this week and could earn a top-15.

Austin Dillon will race chassis 465 at New Hampshire, which is the same car he drove to a 24th-place finish at Atlanta.

Dillon also finished 16th with this chassis twice; those results were earned on the relatively flat Kentucky Speedway and at Charlotte. He qualified 22nd on Friday and should be considered a good bet to finish in that same range this Sunday.
