This Week's Rheem Chevrolet at Charlotte Motor Speedway
Austin Dillon will pilot Chassis No. 167 in the Hisense 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. This was the same chassis Dillon drove to Victory Lane last fall at the Concord, N.C.-based track after starting from the pole position. Since then, the Richard Childress Racing-prepared Chevrolet has garnered three additional top-10 finishes with Dillon behind the wheel.
In six previous NASCAR XFINITY Series starts at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Dillon has earned two victories, three top-five and four top-10 finishes. The RCR driver has earned three pole awards and holds an average starting position of 1.8 coupled with an average finishing position of 5.8. Dillon earned back-to-back pole awards and went on to win both of the events at the 1.5-mile speedway last season.

What do you like best about racing at Charlotte Motor Speedway?
"Charlotte's always been good for me. We swept both (NASCAR) XFINITY Series races there last year. It was a blast. It's always fun to race in front of your hometown crowd. A lot of family and friends come out to watch. Victory Lane was crazy with all my family and friends that were there to celebrate with the No. 2 Rheem team. I personally like Charlotte a lot on long green flag runs. It's a fast-paced track and a lot of fun to drive. Hopefully we can put some steam to her and see what we can do this weekend." -Austin Dillon
