99 Races Down...
Germain Racing team owner Bob Germain gave Dillon his first opportunity to go full-time MENCS racing at the start of 2017, and he’s now in his third year of full-time competition. He previously made sporadic starts for Richard Childress Racing, Stewart Hass Racing, Leavine Family Racing and Tommy Baldwin Racing throughout the 2014, 2015 and 2016 seasons as he worked to gain the attention of teams and owners in the Cup Series. After years of hard work and dedication, Dillon will make his 100th MENCS start.
“When I found out about the opportunity to go full-time Cup Series racing was finally here after growing up around this sport and wanting to do this my whole life, I was so excited and anxious. It was really accomplishing a huge goal in my career and my life. Three years into working with the team at Germain Racing, I feel like I’m still growing and developing as a person and as a driver. Bob Germain and GEICO have dedicated years of support to this sport, and we’re seeing the benefits of that each and every week. I’m just thankful. I’m thankful to be in this sport and make 100 starts. Most people that dream of racing in this series won’t even get to make one, and here I am about to make my 100th. I’m appreciative to all of the people who have taken chances on me to lead their teams and represent their brands. We have great partners in GEICO, Twisted Tea and Chevrolet. I want to thank every person that’s been a part of my first 100 starts in the Cup Series. I appreciate of the opportunities that they have given me. Hopefully 100 is our first win.”
