PAIR OF 7'S FOR TEAM DILLON RACING

(May 12th, 2012) Friday, the team along with Ty Dillon headed North to Lima, OH, home of Limaland Motorsports and University of Northwestern Ohio for a special appearance and U.M.P. Modified event. Usually the team only races the modifieds in Florida during Speedweeks, but they pulled the 41 out of storage and made the long 8 hour trek North. Ty would be fastest during the hot lap session, leaving the team feeling pretty confident about the evening. Ty went out and easily won the heat race earning the pole position, but there was a catch. The track inverts the feature event according to the sum of rolling 2 dice, which happened to be 10! Ty now had only 20 laps to try to make his way from 10th to the front. The feature was plagued with cautions, shutting down any momentum the 41 of Dillon could gain on the high side. In the end, Ty crossed the line 7th.

Meanwhile, Dale McDowell stayed back to try his luck at Cleveland (TN) Speedway in the Southern Allstars event on Saturday night. Dale qualified 8th of the 27 entrants, earning the fourth row outside starting spot. Dale made his move at the drop of the green and fell into 7th place. The caution free event took place on a one lane track, where Dale maintained his position and picked up the 7th place.

This Saturday the team and Dale McDowell will head to Jamaica, VA for the $10k Ultimate Late Model Series event at Virginia Motor Speedway!
