Austin Dillon is an stock car auto racing driver, older brother of Ty Dillon and grandson of Richard Childress. He currently drives the #3 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet Silverado full-time for Richard Childress Racing (RCR) in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. A black #3 car, in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, was made famous by former RCR driver Dale Earnhardt. Dillon is also the 2010 Raybestos Rookie of the Year for the Camping World Truck Series.
Dillon was the 2008 Sunoco Rookie of the Year in the K&N Pro Series East after one win at Greenville-Pickens Speedway, one Pole and ten top-10s in 13 races. In 2008 and 2009, he drove the #2 Chevrolet Impala part time for Richard Childress Racing in the NASCAR Nationwide Series with sponsorship from Chevrolet. His career best finish was 4th at Memphis Motorsports Park in 2008. He made his first Camping World Truck Series start at Iowa Speedway, driving the #3 truck, the first time that the number has appeared in the three major series since Dale Earnhardt, Jr. in the Nationwide Series back in 2002. He would finish 12th. Dillon was supposed to start the Mountain Dew 250 at Talladega Superspeedway during the 2009 Camping World Truck Series season, but the truck failed track inspections, thus his time was removed and was not allowed to race. He will drive full-time in the series in 2010. At Texas Motor Speedway in June, Dillon got his first career pole and ended with a top 5 finish with 3rd and led 20 laps. Dillon is currently attending High Point University. On July 11, 2010, Dillon scored his first career NASCAR victory in the Lucas Oil 200 at Iowa Speedway in the Camping World Truck Series and brought the #3 truck back to victory lane since Bryan Reffner in 2000 at Texas Motor Speedway. Although, when Reffner won, he was not driving for RCR (Jay Sauter was the last driver to win for the team in 1999), he was driving for Team Menard. Austin Dillion would win his record setting 5th pole the most for a rookie in series history. Along with the pole he would lead over 92 laps of 146 to claim his 2nd win of the season at Las Vegas and the second of his career. Austin Dillon was also rookie of the year ending the season with 2 wins 7 top 5s and 16 top 10s.
At the 2012 NASCAR Nationwide Series event at Kentucky, Austin Dillion won his first Nationwide Series event. But, Austin Dillion's #3 Chevy failied inspection. He was still credited to the win though because his team belives the track surface caused his car bumper to rise a 1/2 inch higher than the normal hight.
