Ty Dillon making Cup Series debut at Atlanta

Ty Dillon will make his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series debut this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Dillon, 22, will be driving the Realtree/Rheem Chevrolet SS of Circle Sport Racing. Currently competing full time in the Nationwide Series, Dillon will have Nick Harrison as his crew chief for the Oral-B USA 500.

“It’s going to be a pretty special moment when I make those first laps this weekend, one that I won’t forget,” said Dillon. “I’ve been fortunate enough in my racing career to have great opportunities like this one. I’m looking forward to racing the No. 33 Realtree/Rheem Chevrolet under the lights on Labor Day weekend.”

Dillon currently is third in the Nationwide Series point standings with 10 races remaining.
