Dillon at Michigan International Speedway ... The 22-year-old rookie will be making his NASCAR Nationwide Series debut at the two-mile track this weekend. He has two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts at MIS; a sixth-place finish in 2012 and a third-place finish in 2013. Dillon recorded one of his nine ARCA Series presented by Menards victories at MIS in June 2011.

Happy Birthday Danny Stockman ... The No. 3 RCR crew chief turns 32 this Saturday. Stockman, from Yucaipa, California, won the Nationwide Series championship last season and the Camping World Truck Series championship in 2011.

Eventful off-week ... There may not have been any on-track activity last weekend for the Welcome, N.C. native, but Dillon remained busy. He participated in the Big Cedar Lodge Legends of Golf tournament presented by Bass Pro Shops in Branson, Missouri last Wednesday. He then left for the X-Games in Austin, Texas on Thursday with fellow Nationwide Series drivers Dylan Kwasniewski and Ryan Blaney.

Did you know? ... WESCO International, Inc. supplies over 215,000 different products across North America. The Pittsburgh, Pa. based company has partnered with RCR for five races thus far in 2014 and last season partnered with Dillon in the No. 33 Chevrolet Camaro for six races.

Last time out at Dover International Speedway ... Dillon qualified 12th and quickly got his No. 3 Airgas/Bulwark Camaro inside the top-10. In the end, he crossed the finish line eighth recording the team's ninth top-10 of the season

Get to the points ... Dillon is currently fifth in the driver point standings, trailing the leader by only 34 points. Also competing for the Sunoco Rookie of the Year award, Dillon is in second-place.

Meet Ty Dillon ... Dillon is scheduled to be at the Team Chevy stage located in the Midway on Friday, June 13 beginning at 10:50 a.m. He will be answering questions from a moderator and fans.

What are your thoughts on going to MIS?
"I'm excited to get in a Nationwide Series car at Michigan. I've had some success there in the Camping World Truck Series, so hopefully that can carry over. Our team has been working very diligent this past off weekend with our strategy moving forward, so I'm also anxious to put our hard work to test."

What is it going to take these next 18 weeks without an off weekend to be successful?
"Endurance. I think this team is very well put together and we have the endurance to be successful. Danny (Stockman) and I have been clicking recently and we're ready for this long stretch."
