Dillon at Las Vegas Motor Speedway ... Dillon has made one previous NASCAR Sprint Cup Series start at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, posting a 21st-place finish in March 2013. In two Nationwide Series appearances at the Las Vegas track, he has posted a pair of top-10 finishes (sixth after starting fourth in March 2013 and seventh after starting third in March 2012). He has two starts at the 1.5-mile oval in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series with one pole award and one race win to his credit (September 2010). In his 2011 Camping World Truck Series appearance at the track, Dillon started second and battled back from a lap-three accident to finish 17th.

Family of Stores nationwide. The collectible Cheerios box, which required rare brand approval to replace the traditional red heart bowl with the iconic No. 3, also features historic photos and facts about the legendary number. Fans can interact and receive unique content about Austin Dillon and the No. 3 race team throughout the 2014 season by visiting the "Cheer the 3" social media communities on Facebook (www.Facebook.com/Cheerthe3) and Twitter @Cheerthe3.

What are your thoughts on racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series?
"I enjoy Las Vegas Motor Speedway. It's cool being able to have Phoenix International Raceway and Las Vegas Motor Speedway back-to-back because you can stay out West with your guys on the team and have a good time, then get focused by Thursday and have a good time at the track. Las Vegas has great atmosphere. There are a lot of great fans. It's one of my favorite venues we go. I was fortunate enough to race there in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series last year and we had a decent car, so this year I'm excited to try it again."

Do you like to gamble?
"I do like to play a little bit of black jack. I plan to hang out at the South Point and you should all come join me."
