Dillon at Bristol Motor Speedway .... In one NASCAR Sprint Cup Series start at Bristol Motor Speedway, Dillon posted an 11th-place finish in March after starting 27th. He has four BMS starts to his credit in the Nationwide Series, posting a pair of top-five finishes at the 0.533-mile short track. He earned a career-best, third-place finish in August 2014. He has also earned finishes of 11th (May 2013), 12th (March 2012) and fourth (August 2012). He has two starts at BMS in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, finishing 17th in 2010 and 23rd in 2011.

Fill the Gap ... The average mid-size US home has a staggering half mile of gaps and cracks that inside conditioned air can leak out of, driving up your energy costs. While Dillon drives the No. 3 GREAT STUFF Chevrolet around the half-mile track at Bristol Motor Speedway, fans will be able to visualize how much air could be leaking through their walls every day. Dow Business Solutions is a business unit of the Dow Chemical Company. Dow offers insulation, air sealing and weatherization solutions backed by building science expertise to help reduce energy costs and contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

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 13th in the championship point standings leading into the Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Season-to-Date ... According to NASCAR's Loop Data Season-to-Date Statistics, Dillon leads the Sprint Cup Series in Laps Completed (6,109) and Green Flag Passes (2,601).

Meet Dillon ... Dillon is scheduled to make an appearance on behalf of Cheerios at Food City Family Race Night on Thursday, August 21 at 3:30 p.m. at the corner of State Street and Piedmont Street in Bristol, Tenn. He is also scheduled to join his younger brother, Ty Dillon, and grandfather, Richard Childress, in an autograph session as part of Bass Pro Shops' week-long grand opening celebration, also on Thursday, at 6 p.m.

We are heading to Bristol Motor Speedway. Do you enjoy racing there?
"I think every racer loves Bristol Motor Speedway. It's a fun little bullring. In the spring, the day race pretty much turned into a night race because of the weather and it worked out well for our team. We ended up having a really decent run there, so I have been looking forward to this race for awhile. It's the type of track where you just have to stay in the race the whole time and fight until the end."
