Dillon in the NASCAR XFINITY Series at Chicagoland Speedway
In four XFINITY Series starts at the 1.5-mile speedway, Dillon has two top-five finishes and four top-10 finishes. Dillon has never finished worse than ninth at Chicagoland Speedway. In the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Dillon has one top-five finish. Dillon also recorded a victory in the ARCA Racing Series in June 2011.
Continuing to Succeed on the 1.5-mile Tracks
Through 25 races in the 2016 season, the XFINITY Series has visited five tracks of 1.5-miles in length. In those five races, Dillon has recorded one top-five finish (Atlanta Motor Speedway) and four top-10 finishes (Las Vegas, Charlotte, Kentucky).

Evaluate the No. 3 team on 1.5-mile race tracks this season.
"We feel like we have an advantage when we go to 1.5-mile tracks because we have a notebook that is filled with information from over the years. I'm starting to get more experience. My teammates have a lot of experience. We're in a position now that we expect to finish top five at 1.5-mile tracks. The good news is, when the Chase starts next week, five of the seven tracks we race are 1.5-mile. That's great news for us because we feel that we can lead laps, compete for wins and keep us above the cut line to make it to the final race of the season in Homestead."
