Dillon at Auto Club Speedway ... Although Dillon will make his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series start at Auto Club Speedway this weekend, he has made two previous starts at the two-mile track in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, earning a pair of fifth-place finishes (2012 and 2013).

#CheerThe3 ... Limited edition Cheerios boxes that commemorate the return of the No. 3 to NASCAR's premier series with NASCAR champion Austin Dillon are available to shoppers exclusively at The Kroger Co. Family of Stores nationwide. The collectible Cheerios box, which required rare brand approval to replace the traditional red heart 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.

Get to the Points ... Dillon ranks 13th in the championship driver point standings entering this weekend's race at Auto Club Speedway.

The Season So Far ... Dillon started off his rookie campaign in the Sprint Cup Series with a pole award in the 56th running of the Daytona 500, making him the youngest polesitter in Daytona International Speedway history in the Sprint Cup Series. He earned a ninth-place finish in the "Great American Race." From there, the series traveled to Phoenix International Raceway where Dillon finished 24th, and then Las Vegas Motor Speedway where he posted a 16th-place finish. In the series most recent event, Dillon earned an 11th-place finish at Bristol Motor Speedway.

#ALLin♠Challenge ... Dillon is asking fans whether they are #ALLin♠ for a new and exciting challenge every Wednesday on his Twitter account, @austindillon3. From capturing an "awkward hug" via video to submitting your best "poker face" photo to helping crew chief Gil Martin's son Ford find a date for his upcoming prom, each challenge is unique and the winner, as voted on by Austin, wins race tickets or unique memorabilia. Follow @austindillon3 on Twitter every Wednesday for the #ALLin♠ Challenge.

Is Auto Club Speedway a fun place for you to race because there are so many different lines to drive?
"Auto Club Speedway is definitely a fun place, there are a lot of options. You can race hard and the track is just getting better and better. I think you see the groove come and go. The top of the race track right up by the wall might be as fast as the very bottom. It was a heck of a race last year between Joey Logano and Denny Hamlin. Hopefully, we can go in there and slice and dice a little bit."
