Abilene Speedway Ice Breaker

The 2008 Ice Breaker showed mixed results. Dillon qualified for the A main all three days, but had trouble the first two A main events. On Friday night in between turn one and turn two a car got sideways and came down the track and sheared the back bumper off the car no major damage but you can't race without a back bumper so his night was over. On Saturday night again in lap 2 coming off turn 4 Dillon rolled the right rear bead lock off, this is a very rare occurance, but his night was over early again. On Sunday he ran third in his heat and started on the pole in his B main. He won the B leading every lap. He started 13th in the A and with a big wreck on the first lap, restarted in 9th after the clean up. Dillon then moved up 3 more places and finished 6th in the race. A very good finish considering the competition and tough track to pass on. So on to Kennedale next week.

Dillon to run UARA-Stars Series

It's official Dillon will race the UARA-Stars series with team mate Corey LaJoie the son of 2 time NASCAR Busch Series Champion Randy LaJoie. Heading up and doing double Crew Chief duties will be Shane Brafford a veteran of short track racing on the east coast and native of the Carolinas. We purchased a car to run the series, it was one of the back-up cars for Jeffery Earnhardt who is now a development driver for DEI. Dale Earnhardt Jr. has 2 cars running the series with Richard Boswell, Jr. and Curtis Truex, Jr. driving for him. Also in the field will be Austin Dillon the grandson of Richard Childress. Brandon McReynolds will be driving a car owned by Larry McReynolds. Last years champion Ross Furr will be driving a car for Tim Furr. This is a quite impressive field of young drivers with some very experienced people following the races.

We couldn't be happier teaming up with Randy LaJoie, along with being a two time champion he also is promoting his Safer Racer program to short track drivers across the country. If you have ever been around Randy when he talks about racing safely you know how committed he is to this sport and promoting driver safety his mission.

Thanks again to Randy LaJoie, The Joie of Seating and Shane Brafford for helping Dillon begin his quest for a shot at asphalt racing on the east coast.
