Dillon hopes for repeat of last weekend

Austin Dillon put on a show last weekend at Nashville. Driving his grandfathers truck he finished first, a day later he frove Kevin Harvick’s Nationwide car to a third place finish.

This weekend at Lucas Oil Raceway he will make his fourth and final Nationwide start of the season. It’s likely there will be as much or more talk about the risings of Dillon as there will be of Travis Pastrana who will be making his Nationwide debut.

Dillon contines to chase after Johnny Sauter in the Camping World Truck Series standings. His win last week was the first of the year but moved him to within 18 points of Sauter. The third place driver in the standings, James Buescher, is 42 points back and has made one less start.

With three career wins in the truck series and a plan to race the entire 2012 Nationwide schedule Dillon is ticketed for success in the years to come.
