Dillon at Pocono Raceway .... Although this weekend marks Dillon's first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series attempt at Pocono Raceway, he has two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts at the triangle-shaped track, finishing seventh in 2010 and fifth in 2011.

Welcome, Dow ...Dillon's rookie year in the Sprint Cup Series is also Dow's first year as a primary sponsor with RCR and the No. 3 Chevrolet. Together, both teams embrace the power of safety, science and technology as RCR tests Dow products under the most strenuous conditions. Dow also drives innovation to help address many of the world's most challenging problems, bringing a broad range of sustainable products and solutions to customers in nearly 180 countries. www.dow.com.

Get to the Points ... Dillon ranks 15th in the championship point standings entering this weekend's race event at Pocono Raceway.

#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 #ALLinâ™  Challenge.

Happy Anniversary ... On Friday, Dillon joins baseball aficionados throughout America in wishing the Little League World Series a Happy 75th Anniversary. Dillon made it to Williamsport in 2002 when he played for the Southwest Forsyth (Clemmons, N.C.) team.

Testing 1, 2, 3 ... Dillon spent Wednesday testing at Virginia International Raceway with his Gil Martin-led race team in preparation for the upcoming road course races on the schedule.

Are each of the three corners at Pocono Raceway different, and is it possible to set up the car for each of them?
"We did test there. We chose that as one of our tracks. Ryan Newman wanted to go there, so we went there to learn as much as we could. I ran there in the trucks. I'm sure it's going to be a learning experience shifting and doing different things, and three turns does make it a little harder than two to comprehend. It's a frustrating place because you have three different corners to set up for. One's flat, one's banked and one's just a weird corner, so you get after it as hard as you can and try to give it the best you can."
