Ty Dillon Scores UMP DIRTCar Nationals Gator Championship
1February 17th, 2014 - Ty Dillon and Team Dillon Racing have shown complete dominance in the 2014 DIRTCar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park thus far. Ty scored his biggest victory of the week on Monday night when he led flag-to-flag in the Gator Championship.

Ty drew the outside pole position for the $5,000-to-win feature event while teammate and brother, Austin Dillon rolled off from the seventh spot. Ty jumped to the lead over pole sitter Kenny Wallace at the start of the 30 lap feature, and began to pull away with Austin up to third before the caution came out on lap 22 and bunched the field back up.

The final caution flew on a lap 27 restart when second place running Nick Hoffman lost a left rear wheel, send him into a spin collecting Austin and several others in a pile up at the start-finish line. Austin's night would come to an end and he was credited with a 16th place finish.

Back underway, Ty motored his way out front for the final three laps, holding off Devin Gilpin to claim his third victory of the week. Dale Mathison finished third followed by Jeff Babcock and Kyle Strickler rounding out the top five.
