Ty Dillon to run Nationwide race at Indianapolis

Ty Dillon will drive in his second Nationwide Series race this weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Dillon, the grandson of Richard Childress, will drive the #51 car in the inaugural Nationwide race at the 2.5 mile track.

Dillon made his Nationwide Series debut at Dover in June. After starting third he finished eighth.

The #51 car will have equipment provided by Richard Childress Racing. The normal driver of the car, Jeremy Clements, will drive the #4 car this weekend. This will ensure that Dillon gets to start the race. Clements Automotive is currently listed as the sponsor of the car to be driven by Dillon.
