NASCAR XFINITY Series - Alert Today Florida 300
February 21, 2015 - Daytona International Speedway
Austin Dillon, No. 33
Austin Dillon will pilot Chassis No. 154 in the Alert Today Florida 300 at Daytona International Speedway. This is a new Chevrolet Camaro that will be utilized for the first time this weekend. Dillon, the 2013 XFINITY Series Champion and 2012 Rookie of the Year, returns to regular XFINITY Series competition this season. After making one XFINITY Series start in 2014, Dillon plans to run a majority of the scheduled races this season under the RCR banner with Rheem. He is a two-time race winner in the XFINITY Series and 10-time pole winner, holding the record for most consecutive poles in series history with seven.
I feel incredibly fortunate to have this opportunity with Rheem because I think with the new rules package this year, the XFINITY cars will drive as close to the Sprint Cup Series cars as they have ever been before. Sprint Cup Series drivers and crew chiefs have always paid attention to the Saturday XFINITY race, but I think you'll see more of it this year. By running the NASCAR XFINITY Series race on Saturday, I can gather good information that I can use on Sunday. - Austin Dillon
