Dillon in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at AMS ... Dillon will be making his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series debut at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Sunday night. In 2012, Dillon won the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race after qualifying on the pole and leading 40 laps at AMS.

Double-Duty ... In addition to making his Sprint Cup Series debut this weekend, Dillon will pilot the No. 3 Yuengling Light Lager Chevrolet Camaro in the Nationwide Series race at AMS. ESPN2 will broadcast the 300-mile race beginning live at 7:30 p.m. ET. Last season, Dillon pulled "double-duty" four times in the Camping World Truck Series and Nationwide Series races.

Three Series, One Year ... When the green flag drops Sunday night at AMS, Dillon will be only the 10th driver this season to have driven in all three of NASCAR's top series. The Nationwide Series regular raced in the second annual Mudsummer Classic at Eldora Speedway in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

On the Pit Box ... Dillon will work with crew chief Nick Harrison this weekend for the 500-mile, Labor Day Weekend race. Harrison, who grew up in Columbia, Tenn., has worked with several drivers this season, including Brian Scott, Paul Menard, Matt Crafton, Austin Dillon and Cale Conley. The 32-year-old crew chief has amassed two victories already this season; Paul Menard in the Nationwide Series race at Michigan International Speedway and Austin Dillon in the Camping World Truck Series at Pocono Raceway.

Dillon and Harrison ... Dillon and Harrison have two Nationwide Series races together under their belts, both coming at the end of the 2013 season. Dillon raced the No. 33 WESCO Chevrolet Camaro to a 12th-place finish at Texas Motor Speedway and a 14th-place finish at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Realtree On Board ... Realtree, the world's leading camouflage designer, marketer and licensor, will be on the hood of the No. 33 Chevrolet SS for Sunday night's Oral-B USA 500. Realtree served as a primary sponsor for Dillon's Camping World Truck Series debut in 2011 at Kentucky Speedway.

Rheem on the No. 33 ... Rheem, a leading provider of heating, cooling and water heating products such as gas furnaces, heat pumps, air conditioners and indoor air quality products, will be featured on the No. 33 Chevrolet SS this weekend. An American operated company, Rheem was founded in 1925 and is headquartered just a few miles from Atlanta Motor Speedway.

How are you feeling about your Sprint Cup Series debut?
"It's going to be a pretty special moment when I make those first laps this weekend, one that I won't forget. I've been fortunate enough in my racing career to have great opportunities like this one. I'm looking forward to racing the No. 33 Realtree/Rheem Chevrolet under the lights on Labor Day weekend."

What are you expecting working with Nick Harrison this weekend?
"Nick is an incredibly smart guy who knows a lot about this sport. He's worked with a lot of different drivers and has won a few races. We had the opportunity to run a few races last season and I think we worked well together. Nick's experience and expertise will be great for this weekend's 500-mile event."
