2014 Eldora: Austin Dillon NASCAR Truck Race Preview

This Week's American Ethanol Chevrolet at Eldora Speedway ... Austin Dillon will pilot chassis No. 004 from the Richard Childress Racing NASCAR Camping World Truck Series stable. RCR teammate Brendan Gaughan raced this Chevrolet to a fifth-place finish during last year's inaugural Camping World Truck Series race at Eldora Speedway. Prior to that, Joey Coulter competed with this truck at Dover International Speedway in 2011 (finished sixth) and Darlington Raceway (finished 28th). Dillon utilized this Chevrolet Silverado during his rookie year in the Camping World Truck Series, earning a seventh-place finish at Phoenix International Raceway, a 35th-place finish at Charlotte Motor Speedway and a sixth-place finish at Kansas Speedway.

Dillon at Eldora Speedway ... Dillon won the inaugural Camping World Truck Series race at Eldora Speedway. The experienced dirt track racer is quite familiar with the half-mile dirt track, previously competing there in the Prelude to the Dream dirt late model event in 2011. He also won the pole for the World 100 dirt late model race in 2010 at the Ohio facility.

Tailgating ... The 2011 Camping World Truck Series Champion has competed in select events this season for NTS Motorsports but this weekend marks his first start for RCR in the Truck Series since winning at Eldora Speedway one year ago. Dillon is also scheduled to drive a No. 3 Yuengling Light Lager Chevrolet under the RCR banner at Pocono Raceway in the Pocono Mountains 125 on August 2.

Think Green ... The No. 2 Chevrolet team will sport the black and green colors of American Ethanol this Wednesday at Eldora Speedway. American Ethanol, a renewable source of cleaner burning energy from the bounty of America's farmers, helps create new green jobs and a renewed sense of pride for the American worker, while helping to achieve greater energy security for our country. Launched by Growth Energy and the National Corn Growers Association, along with the support of other partners, American Ethanol is a breakthrough brand that seeks to expand consumer awareness of the benefits of ethanol and E15, and takes the NASCAR Green initiative to the next level. Since the program launch for the 2011 season, NASCARĀ® drivers have run more than 6 million miles on renewable Sunoco Green E15.

A Family Tradition ... For the fifth time in their Camping World Truck Series careers, the Dillon brothers will compete against each other at Eldora Speedway. The last time they were both in the same Truck Series event was at Eldora Speedway last year, when Austin earned the win and his brother Ty finished 16th. Other memorable moments in their Truck Series careers include Homestead-Miami Speedway in 2011 when Austin earned a 10th-place finish and clinched the 2011 championship while little brother Ty posted a sixth-place result.

Talk about Racing at Eldora Speedway and what it means to you.
"I can't wait, Eldora Speedway is a special place. Wining the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race there last year was probably one of the most memorable wins of my career, so far. The track means so much to me because of my dirt racing background. It was a lot of fun and the track did some really cool things, such as letting each member of the team scoop up a piece of dirt from the track and keep it. They gave me a gold shovel, which was a really cool thing as well. I also got to take my picture with Richard Petty since he was the last driver before me to win on dirt. It's just cool, it means a lot."
