Besides celebrating his 24th birthday on Saturday, Ty Dillon earned a top-five finish at Atlanta Motor Speedway with his Rheem Racing No. 3 team. Starting in the Head's Up Georgia 250 in sixth position, Dillon strived to keep in the top-10. He ultimately earned a free pass to the lead lap under the final caution flag, took four tires and surged into the top-five from 11th position on restart. Ty Dillon was able to hold that position and earned a top-five finish and 36 driver's points.
Wow, what a way to battle there at the end. We had an unlucky situation happen at the beginning of the race and went a lap down, but the speed stayed in ? this No. 3 Rheem Chevrolet, and we didn't give up. Thank you to Rheem for all of their support this weekend. I was glad to be able to put on a good show in front of their hometown crowd in Atlanta. - Ty Dillon
