Austin and TY Dillon: The sons of Mike Dillon ( RCR general manager and former race car driver) and the grandsons of Richard Childress. Austin and TY both attend High Point University, were TY is majoring in business management and Austin is majoring in Communications. Their father Mike Dillon told them if they want to race, they have to get a college education as a back up plan if racing does not work out. If you have been watching Austin and TY Dillon race, you know that racing is working out for them and they have been really successful in their young racing career’s.
Austin has a good chance at claiming the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Championship at the end of the 2011 season. TY has a huge points lead in the ARCA Series, so expect to hear the name TY Dillon as the 2011 ARCA Racing series Champion. The Dillon brothers are without a doubt two of the best young racers that us race fans have seen in a long time. keep your eye on the two of them because before you know it, both of them will be racing in the Sprint Cup Series full time in a couple years. In my opinion, I think both of them will do very well in 2012 and in the years to come. We will have to keep watching the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and the NASCAR Nationwide Series and wait and see what the future will hold for the Dillon brothers.
To Austin and TY Dillon: Congratulations on getting the opportunity to move your racing careers to the next level in 2012!
