Austin Dillon looking to 'light it up' at NASCAR All-Star Race

Dillon’s victory last July at Texas allowed him to qualify for the 2020 Cup Series playoffs, where he ended up finishing a career-best tying 11th in the series standings. If he can repeat that performance in Sunday night’s NASCAR All-Star Race – albeit with a much different format – Dillon and his No. 3 Richard Childress Racing team can add a $1 million check to his Texas haul.

To earn an All-Star win, Austin Dillon must use last summer’s win at Texas Motor Speedway as blueprint

FORT WORTH — Austin Dillon’s NASCAR Cup Series victory at Texas Motor Speedway last summer just might serve as the perfect blueprint for a $1 million payday this weekend. Dillon punched his ticket into Sunday’s 37th annual NASCAR All-Star Race July 21 when he and crew chief Justin Alexander collaborated on a late-race pit stop during the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 at TMS. Alexander’s decision to take left-side tires and fuel set up Dillon’s battle with then-rookie teammate Tyler Reddick, Austin’s winning pass on a restart and an inspired 1-2 finish for Richard Childress Racing.
