Dillon in the NASCAR Nationwide Series at Bristol Motor Speedway ... Dillon is scheduled to make his third career Nationwide Series start at the half-mile short track. The 22-year-old driver finished sixth earlier this season in the Drive to Stop Diabetes 300. In 2013, Dillon drove the No. 33 WESCO Chevrolet Camaro to a seventh-place finish.

Grand Celebration ... Bass Pro Shops, America's No. 1 Outdoor Retailer, will be celebrating the opening of its 68th store this week with its new Bristol, Tennessee location. On Wednesday evening the festivities will kick off with an "Evening of Conservation" featuring local conservation groups and an all-star cast of celebrities. The events will continue throughout the race weekend and Sunday, August 24 the store will host a free concert, interactive vendor exhibits, giveaways and food sampling from grill vendors.

Bass Pro Shops & RCR in 2014 ... Bass Pro Shops will be on the No. 3 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet Camaro for the eighth time this season as a primary sponsor. America's No. 1 Outdoor Retailer has been a long-time partner of RCR including last season with Dillon in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Second time back ... Dillon earned a sixth-place finish last time out at Bristol Motor Speedway. He qualified his No. 3 Yuengling Light Lager Chevrolet Camaro ninth and raced around the top-10 for most of the 300-lap event. In the end, crew chief Danny Stockman called for a two-tire pit stop to improve the team's track position, ultimately allowing Dillon to cross the finish line sixth.

Points update ... Dillon remains fourth in the driver point standings, 28 points behind the leader. Also competing for the Sunoco Rookie of the Year award, Dillon is in second place.

Meet Ty Dillon ... Ty Dillon, Austin Dillon and Richard Childress are scheduled to be at the Bass Pro Shops grand opening celebration beginning at 6 p.m. on Thursday. Fans who receive a wrist band will have an opportunity to get the trio's autograph. The new store is located at 1 Bass Pro Drive, Bristol, Tenn.

What is your approach going back to Bristol Motor Speedway for the second time?
"Bristol is such a neat track, definitely one of our favorites to visit because of the history and the fan support that we get. From a racing stand point, it's a very technical track and we've been gathering a healthy notebook of information. I've re-watched some of the past races, spoke with Danny (Stockman, crew chief) and the team and we feel confident about this Friday night's race."
