As I write on here more and more, my opinions are bound to come out! So I figured I would make this blog entry all about my favorite NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver, Austin Dillon. Austin drives the famous Number 3 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet for Richard Childress, also known to him as "Grandpa!"
The twenty year-old made his NCWTS debut exactly a year ago at Iowa Speedway, and finished twelfth! This year, in ten races, he was able to have seven top-ten starts, six in the top five, three consecutive poles and scored his first win today at Iowa!! No other Rookie has ever done that! He also sits comfortably in the seventh position in points.
Austin also raced in the NASCAR Camping World East Series. He was the 2008 Rookie of the Year because of his win at Greenville-Pickens Speedway, one pole and ten Top-Tens. All of this in only thirteen races! In 2008 and 2009, he raced the Number 2 Chevy Impala part time for Richard Childress Racing. He got his first pole at Texas Motor Speedway in June. During this race, he led twenty laps and finished third!
Not bad for a Rookie Season!
