Austin Dillon Wins at Volusia Speedway Park

February 10th, 2015 - Team Dillon Racing (TDR) kicked off the 44th edition of the UMP DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park on Tuesday night. The team would enjoy a great start to the week as NASCAR Sprint Cup Series star, Austin Dillon drove his #3 Team Dillon Racing Open Wheel Modified entry to victory.

Austin won his preliminary heat race which sent him to the redraw where he was the recipient of the pole position for the 20-lap main event. Dillon immediately built an advantage over fellow front-row starter, Nick Hoffman at the drop of the green flag. A late caution stacked the field back up, but Austin would execute a perfect restart and surge to victory over Hoffman, his brother Ty, Jacob Hawkins and Kenny Wallace.

“It’s a great start to our week, it always has been,” said Austin. “I love coming here. It definitely gets your confidence up when you come out the first night and win one. We have a long week ahead of us and hopefully I can get some more wins. I just hope it’s not like when you go fishing and you catch one on the first cast.”

Ty Dillon enjoyed his podium finish to start off the UMP DIRTcar Nationals week. Ty also won his preliminary heat race and went on to draw the sixth starting spot on the feature grid. He quickly worked his way into the top five and would ultimately register a third place finish behind his brother, Austin and Hoffman.
