NASCAR driver Austin Dillon will expand his schedule in 2015 as he returns to run the Xfitiy Series in addition to the Sprint Cup Series.

Dillon, the 2013 Nationwide Series champion, will drive the No. 33 Chevrolet Camaro for the bulk of the 2015 Xfinity Series season for Richard Childress Racing. Sponsoring Dillon will be Rheem.

Dillon is a two-time XFINITY Series race winner and a 10-time pole winner.

“Rheem is pleased to continue our long association with Richard Childress and his legendary racing organization,” said JR Jones, Rheem President and CEO. “We are looking forward to working with RCR and Austin Dillon again in 2015. Austin has won championships in both the Camping World Truck and XFINITY Series and we are confident he will put Rheem back in the winner’s circle again in 2015. As a longtime sponsor in NASCAR, Rheem has been proud to be a part of racing’s history and we look forward to being a part of its future.”

Rheem has sponsored RCR cars dating back to the 2007 season.

“Rheem has a long tradition of reliability and quality in their industry with close to 90 years in the business,” said Dillon. “My family has a long tradition in NASCAR and we also have a tradition of reliability and performance. I enjoy racing in the XFINITY Series and will be proud to represent Rheem while contending for wins on Saturday afternoons in 2015.”
