Dillon has found speed at BMS before, with his best results coming in the NXS. In his first six starts at the half-mile track, he never finished outside of the top 10. During that span, he tied his best finish of fourth place in 2014 and 2015, and he had an average finish of 5.5. During the final laps of last year's fall NXS race, Dillon was contending for the win when he was collected in a wreck and finished 25th.

Ty Dillon has completed all the laps except one on unrestricted speedways since leaving Daytona International Speedway.

He finished one lap off the pace at Martinsville, which is not an easy track for rookies in that regard. Even then, he finished 22nd and that is his worst result since the Daytona 500. Dillon is still not favored to win Rookie of the Year honors, but he will make his way onto a lot of fantasy rosters.

Ty Dillon finished 16th last week at Phoenix International Raceway, behind his two principal Rookie of the Year contenders Daniel Suarez and Erik Jones, who scored top-10s.

Predicting top-10s for rookies is difficult because it usually entails a certain amount of luck and track position. Dillon will earn several strong finishes this year, but our best guess says he will wind up with only half as many as Suarez and Jones.

Ty Dillon had a top-15 capable car Sunday at Phoenix International Raceway, but he was shuffled back to 16th in the closing laps.

Dillon spent much of the race positioning himself to challenge the lead pack. His 16th narrowly missed the top 15 just as last week he finished one spot outside of the top 20. Still, he has been consistent and a good value at his cap level.

Austin Dillon, Ty Dillon, and David Ragan were each penalized 15 minutes in the first Saturday practice session for the Camping World 500 after taking too many times through inspection for qualification.

Practice two is relatively short and this was more than 25 percent of the session, but it is much cooler than the drivers will face on Sunday. Final practice will be more representative of a how they will fare in race trim.

There are a couple of good items to report, however. He has finished better than he qualified in every race on this track type including a 10-place improvement at Texas last spring. His last Atlanta Motor Speedway effort ended in a 17th after starting 18th.
