Dillon in the NASCAR Nationwide Series at Mid-Ohio ... The 22-year-old rookie driver will be making his Nationwide Series debut at the 12-turn, 2.258-mile road course. This weekend's 200-mile race will be the third and final road course of the season. Dillon finished 19th and eighth in the two previous road course races.

Learning to turn right ... Dillon has been sharpening his road course skills over the past several months. He participated in the Ron Fellows Driving School on May 5, tested at Virginia International Raceway on May 27, finished 19th at Road America in the Nationwide Series race, drove the No. 12 Chevrolet Camaro in the Trans-Am Series race at Road America to a fourth-place finish and finished eighth at Watkins Glen International.

America's Oldest Brewery on board ... D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc., an American Owned and Family Operated brewery based in Pottsville, Pa., has partnered with Richard Childress Racing's No. 3 Nationwide Series team this season. Brewing beer for 185 years, Yuengling will be featured on the hood for the fifth time this season.

Seasonal Beer ... In addition to Yuengling's 99 calorie, masterfully developed Light Lager, be sure to add their seasonal beer to your grocery list. Yuengling, the 185-year-old establishment, is brewing its seasonal Oktoberfest, scheduled to hit stores this month. Copper in color, this medium bodied beer is the perfect blend of roasted malts with just the right amount of hops, capturing a true representation of the style.

Watkins Glen race rewind ... Dillon qualified his No. 3 Yuengling Light Lager Chevrolet Camaro eighth and was able to race inside the top-10 for most of the 82-lap event. Dillon and crew chief Danny Stockman played the correct pit strategy as Dillon crossed the finish line eighth, recording the team's 15th top-10 finish of the season.

Points update ... Dillon is currently ranked fourth in the driver point standings trailing the leader by only 13 points and trails second-place by only one point. Also competing for Sunoco Rookie of the Year, Dillon is currently in second-place.

Meet Ty Dillon... Dillon is scheduled to "celebrity bartend" at Boondock's Restaurant, 2987 State Rt. 61, Cardington, Ohio on Thursday beginning at 6:30 p.m. On Friday, Dillon will visit Buck's Bar & Grill in Lexington, Ohio to celebrity bartend beginning at 7:30 p.m. All are invited to come out and enjoy a cold Yuengling.

How has road course racing been thus-far?
"I think we've had some challenges but overall it's gone exceptionally well. I thought our Yuengling Light Lager Chevrolet was very good this past weekend at The Glen and our pit strategy has been great. I'm still learning, for sure. The more seat time the better, but I'm very confident going into this weekend at Mid-Ohio."
