NASCAR Sprint Cup Series rookie of the year candidate Austin Dillon has picked up sponsorship on his No. 3 Chevrolet SS for two races.

Bass Pro Shops, who has sponsored Dillon in both the Camping World Truck and Nationwide Series, will join forces with the Richard Childress Racing driver for events at Talladega Superspeedway and Daytona International Speedway.

In 2011 the duo of Bass Pro Shops and Dillon found their way to the Camping World Truck Series title. Bass Pro Shops first sponsored the No. 3 car as an associate sponsor in 1998 while Dale Earnhardt was behind the wheel of the car.

Bass Pro Shops currently sponsors Dillon’s younger brother, Ty Dillon, in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.
