NASCAR XFINITY Series - Hisense 300
May 23, 2015 - Charlotte Motor Speedway, Concord, N.C.
Austin Dillon and the No. 33 Rheem team earned their second victory of the 2015 NASCAR XFINITY Series season Saturday afternoon at Charlotte Motor Speedway in the Hisense 300. Dillon posted the fastest time in qualifying earlier in the day, earning his fourth pole award of the year with the Richard Childress Racing team. After the Welcome, N.C. driver took the green flag for the 200-lap affair, crew chief Nick Harrison made minimal air pressure adjustments during routine four and two-tire pit stops to alleviate a tight-handling Chevrolet. On the final restart of the race, Dillon was scored in the fourth position and worked his way into the second spot with less than 20 laps remaining. With 15 laps to go, the 25-year-old driver battled three wide for the lead before taking over the top spot. Saturday's victory at Charlotte Motor Speedway marks the second time this season the No. 33 team has visited Victory Lane, with the first being at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
I didn't want to get out of this thing, it drove so good. I want to thank Nick (Harrison, crew chief), Danny (Efland, engineer) and the No. 33 Rheem team for all they do. They put together another fast Camaro this weekend, and we dominated today in our hometown. It can't get much cooler than that. It was a heck of a race there with Denny (Hamlin) and Kasey (Kahne) at the end. I had to go right there in lapped traffic to make the pass for the lead. This is really cool to win in my hometown. My whole family was here and a lot of our friends, this is really awesome. - Austin Dillon
