Ty Dillon To Make Cup Debut At Atlanta
Nationwide series driver Ty Dillon will make his Sprint Cup Series debut in the Oral-B USA 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway, driving the No. 33 Circle Sport Chevy.
Realtree and Rheem will sponsor the car.
Dillon, the grandson of Richard Childress Racing owner and founder Richard Childress and the younger brother of Cup series driver Austin Dillon, said:
It’s going to be a pretty special moment when I make those first laps this weekend, one that I won’t forget. I’ve been fortunate enough in my racing career to have great opportunities like this one. I’m looking forward to racing the No. 33 Realtree/Rheem Chevrolet under the lights on Labor Day weekend.
Dillon is in his first year of driving N’Wide full time; he has one win, four top 5s, and 16 top 10s.
