2013 Richmond: Austin Dillon NASCAR Nationwide Race Preview

This Week's AdvoCare Chevrolet at Richmond International Raceway ... Austin Dillon will pilot Chassis No. 125 in the Richmond 250 at Richmond International Raceway. This is the same Chevrolet Camaro that Dillon drove to a sixth-place finish, after starting sixth, at Phoenix International Raceway in March.

Dillon at Richmond International Raceway ... In three previous Nationwide Series appearances at Richmond International Raceway, Dillon has earned two top-10 finishes and led 14 laps at the 0.75-mile track. In his most recent appearance at the track (September 2012), he started second and led 14 laps despite struggling with a tight-handling condition in the center of the corners, ultimately finishing sixth.

Did you know ... Dillon made his Nationwide Series debut at Richmond International Raceway in September 2008, driving the No. 21 Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma Chevrolet to a 26th-place finish after starting from the 31st position.

Get to the Points ... Dillon ranks third in the 2013 Nationwide Series driver championship point standings, trailing current leader Sam Hornish, Jr. by eight points.

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 Richmond 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.

AdvoCare Supporting the Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma ... If Dillon wins this weekend's Nationwide Series race at Richmond International Raceway, AdvoCare will make a $5,000 donation to the Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma. The health and wellness company will pledge $2,000 to CIPT for a top-five finish and $1,000 for a top-10 finish. So far this season, the No. 3 team has raised $6,000 towards the cause. Several members of the Richard Childress Racing Team visited Brenner's Childrens Hospital at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C. to great patients this week as part of their affiliation with CIPT. The Childress Institute invests resources in research, education and awareness to improve the treatment for critically injured children in the U.S. and AdvoCare's generous donations are aimed at helping to raise awareness for pediatric trauma, the No. 1 killer of children in America. You can help save the lives of injured children by making a 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.

Make a Difference ... With the help of Drive4COPD, Dillon and his younger brother Ty are taking part in NASCAR's Race to Green campaign, a fully-integrated and massive national tree planting initiative designed to engage the NASCAR industry and excite fans. The month-long initiative focuses heavily on sustainability programs that NASCAR, the industry and a wide range of partners have in place to help reduce the sport's carbon footprint. COPD is helping to reduce the sport's footprint by donating five trees for each lap the Dillon brothers lead during the month of April.

How Many Candles ... Dillon will celebrate his 23rd birthday on Saturday, April 27.

Off Weekend ... During the Nationwide Series off week, Dillon participated in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Goodyear Tire Test at Daytona International Speedway, driving the No. 33 Chevrolet SS.

What do you think about Richmond International Raceway?
"One of the best things about Richmond International Raceway is that it's similar to Iowa Speedway, a track where I have logged a lot of laps. It's a fun track because you really slide around. You've really got to use the brakes at Richmond International Raceway. You don't really touch the brakes much at mile-and-a-half long tracks, but braking is very important at a track like Richmond. Getting off the corner, having forward bite, and being able to adjust your car to make it really good for longer runs and then being able to go at the end when there is a late race caution are needed. I think we have a good package for Phoenix International Raceway, Iowa Speedway, Richmond International Raceway and a lot of the short tracks, so I am excited to get there and do some night racing."
