Austin Dillon started his day at the back of the pack after changing a blown engine. He used strategy in the middle stage of the race to reestablish his track position and eventually finished exactly where he qualified for the Pure Michigan 400: in fourth.
Once Dillon got back with the leaders, he was capable of running alongside the race winner Matt Kenseth. Michigan International Speedway is one of Dillon’s better tracks and fantasy owners should make a note of that for 2016. Aug 16 - 6:06 PM

With six minutes remaining, Austin Dillon dropped off the pace and limped to the garage. He reported that he was having engine issues when that happened.

If Dillon has to change engines, he will be forced to give up his fourth-place position on the grid and drop to the back. That will seriously impact his ability to score a top-10 finish. The team believes the issue may have been fuel injection related, which would be great news for the Young Gun.

Austin Dillon was the best in class in qualification for the Pure Michigan 400. He landed fourth on the grid behind three Joe Gibbs Racing drivers.

This is Dillon’s third consecutive top-10 start at Michigan and he hopes to fare better than he did in August 2014 or this June. In those two events he finished in the 20s and cost fantasy owners a lot of place differential points.

Austin Dillon could be shaping up as the top dark horse candidate for the Windows 10 400 at Pocono Raceway. He advanced to the final round of qualification and posted the fourth-fastest time in that session.

Dillon is not an automatic pick, however, because he started sixth this June in the Axalta We Paint Winners 400 before fading to 19th. Watch him closely in practice and only start the No. 3 if he posts one of the top-five, 10-lap averages in either Saturday session.

Sprint Cup regular Austin Dillon will make his first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) start of the 2015 season for NTS Motorsports at Eldora Speedway while behind the wheel of the No. 31 Dow AgroSciences Chevrolet Silverado.

In 2013, as NASCAR returned to dirt racing for the first time in 40 years, Dillon drove his truck to victory lane in the inaugural Mud Summer Classic at Ohio's Eldora Speedway. The experienced dirt track racer is quite familiar with the half-mile dirt track, previously competing there in the Prelude to the Dream dirt late model event in 2011. He also won the pole for the World 100 dirt late model race in 2010 at the Ohio-based facility.-NTS Motorsports

Dillon has been suffering through a sophomore slump, but top-10s at Daytona International Speedway and New Hampshire could be enough to reverse his fortune. It is too soon to form a bandwagon, but fantasy players should keep a close eye on the No. 3.

The book on Austin Dillon is not very thick, but his record is promising. He finished 17th in the Toyota / Save Mart 350k last year and backed that up with a 16th in the Cheez-it 355k at the Glen.
