Dillon at Daytona International Speedway ... Dillon has three previous Nationwide Series starts at Daytona International Speedway, finishing fifth in February 2012, fourth in July 2012 and 21st in February 2013. He also made his Daytona 500 debut in this year's Great American Race and has two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts at the track.

The Season So Far ... According to NASCAR's Loop Data Season-to-Date Statistics, Dillon leads the Nationwide Series in Average Starting Position (4.4), ranks second in laps in the Top-15 (88.2 percent), has led the second-most laps (336), ranks fourth in Fastest Laps Run (139), fourth in Average Running Position (9.671) maintains the fourth-best Driver Rating (99.5) and is the fourth-Fastest Driver on Restarts (8.733).

What did you learn about these cars at Daytona International Speedway and that style of racing in February?
"You can be leading or running 25th on the last lap and you don't know where you're going to end up. It's just wild racing. It's a tight pack where anything can happen. You see a little bit of pushing and a little bit of tandem drafting, but with it being hotter at Daytona International Speedway in July than it is in February, I think you will see less tandem drafting and more pack racing. You never know what can happen with that big pack."

Where do you want to be on that last lap?
"I want to be out front. I think that's the best place to be, and leading the pack. Or actually ... probably about the second or third tandem if it's tandem at the end then you want to be in the second or third one and have that run coming off of turn four."

Do you enjoy restrictor plate racing, whether it's at Daytona or Talladega?
"I think you have to. It is fun while you're doing it., it's just a big time bummer when you wreck after you have a good day and a fast car."
