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. Mar 24 - 1:34 PM

In addition to driving his regular No. 33 GEICO Chevrolet SS in Sunday's Cup Series Auto Club 400, Ty Dillon will pilot the No. 3 RUUD Chevrolet Camaro in the NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) Service King 300 at Auto Club Speedway (ACS) on Saturday.

He scored his only NXS top-10 finish at the 2-mile track in 2014 when he took the checkers in eighth place.-Richard Childress Racing

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.

Ty Dillon has made two starts at Phoenix International Raceway, which will give him a leg up on the rookie competition.

In fact, Dillon already has a top-15 to his credit. That came in this race last year while he ran in relief of the injured Tony Stewart. He started 28th and finished 15th. He completed all of the laps, which gives him maximum notes.

Ty Dillon advanced to the second round of qualification, but could not improve beyond that. He will start the Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway 24th.

Ty Dillon has six starts at the senior level on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks; all but one of these ended somewhere in the 20s.

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.
Mar 3 - 1:24 PM

It does not count for his Cup records, but Ty Dillon has already earned one top-10 at the senior level with a ninth in the Can-Am Duel at Daytona.

Actually, make that two. Dillon finished seventh in relief of Tony Stewart last spring at Talladega. Dillon is expected to be the third driver in the Rookie of the Year battle, so there is no reason to avoid him in this wild card restrictor-plate, superspeedway race.

Ty Dillon has made two previous starts at Daytona International Speedway and both of them ended in mid-20s results.

Dillon finished 28th in the 2015 Daytona 500 and was 25th in that same race last year. The good news is that he was running on the lead lap in both events, which should put him in a position to advance through the pack if he gets the right drafting help in the closing laps.

Twisted Tea, the No. 1 maker of hard iced tea in the United States, has partnered with Ty Dillon, Germain Racing and Richard Childress Racing (RCR) in a multi-year agreement to be primary sponsor of the No. 13 Chevrolet SS.

Ty Dillon will remain with the No. 3 Chevrolet team and will partner with rookie crew chief Matt Swiderski, who has spent 10 years at RCR in its engineering department. Swiderski made his debut as crew chief last season at Homestead-Miami Speedway, where he led the No. 3 team to a second-place finish. Austin Dillon and Paul Menard will be primary drivers for the No. 2 Chevrolet, with second-year crew chief Justin Alexander atop the pit box. Additional drivers for RCR's No. 2 and No. 3 teams will be named at a later date.-RCR

Ty Dillon scored one official top-15 last year in the NASCAR Cup series.

Dillon’s official top-15 was a 15h at Phoenix International Raceway in March driving in relief for Tony Stewart, but he was even better in May. He took over for the same driver after Stewart recently returned from injury at Talladega SuperSpeedway and scored a sixth. That gave the pre-rookie four top-20s for the season and some experience as he takes over the No. 13 Germain Racing team Chevrolet.
