Dillon Gains Sponsor For DIRTcar Nationals


WELCOME, N.C. – Florida Lottery will be the primary sponsor of Ty Dillon’s No. 41 Team Dillon Racing Chevrolet during the 45th annual DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Fla.

Beginning on Feb. 9, the 23-year-old NASCAR XFINITY Series regular will be behind the wheel of the UMP modified for six nights, competing for the coveted Gator Championship trophy. Dillon is a former DIRTcar Nationals champion (2011-’12, 2014) at the half-mile dirt track.

Dillon competes in select open-wheel modified and late model races around the East Coast with family-owned and operated Team Dillon Racing. Dillon began his racing career with TDR and credits much of his success to the developmental race team, which is based on the campus of Richard Childress Racing.

“Dirt car racing has always been one of my favorite hobbies. It allows me to get back to what I grew up doing and just go out and have fun.” Dillon said. “I can’t thank the Florida Lottery enough for partnering with us for the DIRTcar Nationals.”
