Posted by: newsla on Jun 11, 2013 - 07:21 PM
2013 Michigan: Austin Dillon NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Preview

This Week's American Ethanol Chevrolet SS at Michigan International Speedway ... Austin Dillon will pilot chassis No. 418 in the Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway. This former No. 27 entry was driven by teammate Paul Menard to a 13th-place finish in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway in May, and a 17th-place finish at Texas Motor Speedway in April before it was converted to the black and green colors of American Ethanol.

Dillon at Michigan International Speedway ... Dillon competed in last year's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Michigan International Speedway. He posted lap times consistent with the top 10 competitors and ran in the top 15 before a broken radio caused him to fall one lap down to the race leader and finish 24th.

Think Green ... RCR's No. 33 Chevrolet team will sport the black and green colors of American Ethanol this weekend at Michigan International Speedway. American Ethanol, a renewable source of cleaner burning energy from the bounty of America's farmers, helps create new green jobs and a renewed sense of pride for the American worker, while helping to achieve greater energy security for our country. Launched by Growth Energy and the National Corn Growers Association, along with the support of other partners, American Ethanol is a breakthrough brand that seeks to expand consumer awareness of the benefits of ethanol and E15, and takes the NASCAR Green initiative to the next level. Since the program launch for the 2011 season, NASCARĀ® drivers have run more than 4 million miles on renewable Sunoco Green E15.

A Family Tradition ... Dillon will spend Father's Day with his father, Mike Dillon (RCR's Vice President of Competition) and grandfather, Richard Childress, as they watch him race on Sunday at Michigan International Speedway.

Double Duty ... In addition to competing in Sunday's Sprint Cup Series race, Dillon is scheduled to drive the No. 3 AdvoCare Chevrolet Camaro in the NASCAR Nationwide Series on Saturday. The race is scheduled to air live on ABC on Saturday, June 15 beginning at 2:30 p.m. Eastern Time.

You have a busy race weekend coming up at Michigan International Speedway ...
"I'm going to be busy running both the No. 3 AdvoCare Chevrolet Camaro in the NASCAR Nationwide Series and the No. 33 American Ethanol Chevrolet SS in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series this weekend at Michigan International Speedway. I'm looking forward to it. I love double duty. It's fun. I've enjoyed the races that I've been able to run in the Sprint Cup Series so far this year, and Michigan International Speedway is probably one of my favorite tracks. It's a big, fast place. It's nice and smooth. It's going to be fun."

Do you think the fans at Michigan International Speedway will be excited to see American Ethanol on the side of your NASCAR Sprint Cup Series car this weekend?
"They're going to love it. We ran an American Ethanol paint scheme last year and it was really neat to get feedback from our fans. We went out to some camp sites during the race weekend last year and the fans were really positive and excited. There are a lot of people that are passionate about NASCAR who have become really interested in ethanol and want to learn about it because they see it on the race track running well. It's cool that I'm able to help show the benefits of a clean fuel that runs well."
