Austin Dillon to Visit Champions Club Sept. 24
Austin Dillon, the 2011 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion and 2013 NASCAR XFINITY Series champion, will visit New Hampshire Motor Speedway's Champions Club on Sunday, Sept. 23. A playoff contender for this year's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series championship, Dillon will make a 15-minute appearance in the Turn 1 hospitality area at 10:45 a.m., less than three hours before the start of the ISM Connect 300.
Dillon, driver of the No. 3 Dow Chevrolet for Richard Childress Racing, earned a spot in this year's playoffs via his win in May's Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
"Austin has shown he can win at every level and is sure to be a force to be reckoned with in this year's playoff," said David McGrath, executive vice president and general manager of the speedway. "I really think Austin will be a great addition to our Champions Club lineup and provide fans with an opportunity to see and interact with a driver moments before he suits up and gets behind the wheel for the ISM Connect 300 playoff race."
The Champions Club offers fans the exclusive opportunity to watch the race from the infield. It is located in the infield in Turn 1 and features infield access, a Sunday Pre-Race Pit Pass, FanVision rental, covered seating, televisions to watch the race, tailgate games and buffet. Champions Club passes are available for the entire race weekend or Sunday only.
Dillon is in his fourth full season in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. He earned his first postseason berth in last year's Chase format and is a virtual lock for this year's multi-round elimination format.
Dillon has one top-10 finish in seven Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series starts at NHMS. He finished 15th in July's Overton's 301. He also has four top-fives in five XFINITY Series starts at NHMS and three top-fives, including a win in 2015, in four Camping World Truck Series starts.
