TEAM DILLON RACING COMPETES IN FALL CLASSIC AT NATURAL BRIDGE
1October 6th, 2012 - A cool Fall weekend took the team to Natural Bridge Speedway (Natural Bridge, Virginia) for the $10,000-to-win, Sunoco Fall Classic with Team Dillon Racing drivers, Austin Dillon and Dale McDowell in competition. Thirty-six Super Late Models were on hand for the program, and Austin started his weekend by qualifying tenth fastest to earn the third starting spot for his heat race. He was running in the top five early in the heat, when he spun collecting two other cars. Dillon was able to continue, but with the damage had an ill-handling car and could only manage a seventh place finish. As a result he was forced to run a consolation event on Saturday night, and would finish second to earn the twenty-second starting spot for the finale. He would go on to record a seventeenth place finish in his #3 TDR/Warrior/ECR Racing Engine entry.

Dale McDowell began his weekend by registering the third fastest time, which rewarded him with the pole of the third heat race. He went on to win the heat race to lock into the dash on Saturday night. After starting fourth in the dash he finished third to lock into the third starting spot for the 50 lap finale. Early in the feature he moved into the second spot, and that's where he would ultimately finish to race winner, Walker Arthur. Full results are available at www.NBSpeedway.com.
