Dillon at Phoenix International Raceway ... Dillon has made three previous Nationwide Series starts at PIR, earning a sixth-place finish in November 2012, a fourth-place finish in March 2012 and a 34th-place finish in April 2009. In two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts at the track, he has a pair of top-10 finishes and has made one start in the K&N Pro Series West at PIR (finished 15th in 2009).

The Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma ... On behalf of AdvoCare and the Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma, Dillon is scheduled to visit Phoenix Children's Hospital on Thursday to help raise awareness for pediatric trauma, the No. 1 killer of kids in America. Fans can help save the lives of injured children by making their own contribution to the Childress Institute in two ways: donate $33 in honor of Dillon via his website, or text WIN to 80077 to make a $10 donation.

Spark your Engines ... Dillon and the RCR team will sport the colors of award-winning premier health and wellness company AdvoCare on the No. 3 Chevrolet at Phoenix International Raceway. AdvoCare offers nutrition, weight loss, energy and sports performance products of the highest quality developed through comprehensive research and backed by a Scientific and Medical Advisory Board. Dillon trains with AdvoCare products throughout the week and is a distributor as well. For more information about Dillon's favorite products, including Spark, Rehydrate, meal replacement bars and Post-Workout Recovery, visit http://www.AdvoCare.com.

Road Trippin' ... Dillon plans to join his Danny Stockman-led team for a week on the road following Saturday's Nationwide Series race at PIR. Members of the No. 3 team will drive 300 miles from Avondale, Ariz., to Las Vegas, Nev., for the next Nationwide Series race on the schedule, which is at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Saturday, March 9.

What are your thoughts on heading to Phoenix International Raceway and that racetrack?

"Phoenix is a place where you'll really find out who the competition is. I think it's a handling race track where you have to work on your car and make sure it's right for the race. I love going out to Phoenix. The new pavement and surface has made it a really fun place for a racer to race and I can't wait to get out there."

We have noticed a lot of guys cut the corner in turn two at Phoenix International Raceway. Do you do that?

"You can. I think it damages the splitter pretty bad and it's not a gain in speed so I try to stay up on the track as much as I can. Keeping the splitter on the race car is very important to the downforce of these cars. Phoenix International Raceway is a place where getting off of each corner is very big. Entry is important. You need to be stable but you need to be the first one to the gas."
