Dillon To Make Sprint Cup Debut Later This Year
Austin Dillon will make his Sprint Cup Series debut later this year at Kansas Speedway and Phoenix International Raceway in a Richard Childress Racing-prepared Chevy. Dillon is Childress’ grandson.
The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation’s Centennial Celebration and the Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma will serve as primary sponsors on the car, which will run the No. 98. The car will run an Earnhardt Childress Racing engine, and will use Dillon’s RCR crew that fields his car in the Camping World Truck Series.
