[QUOTE=carolwicks;53859]I dont know Austin Dillon. where is he from? His name is very familiar…
[SIZE=“4”]20-year old Austin Dillon is Mike Dillon?s son which of course
makes him Richard Childress?s grandson.
Austin won ROY in 2008 in what is now known
as NASCAR?s K & N Series.
This is his first full year in the NCWTS, has racked-up
two wins, 5-poles and is in contention for Raybestos ROY.
His younger brother, Ty Dillon, is making his mark now
in Dirt Late Models as well as ARCA.
Ty is competing in Dirt Late Models this weekend at
Talladega?s dirt track.
thanks for the brief… no small wonder his name sounds familiar. where are you going racing tonight? would love to see you and your son again.
John Jackson in the race used to compete at Desoto.
Great run by Chris. Would have loved to see the upset win!
someone came to me last night and said Chris had a wreck or car trouble at the end of the race. please explain what happened. sketchy info. thanks
He ran out out fuel in the tri-oval coming to the green white checker finish. He coasted to the end of pitroad and sat just in front of the last pitstall at pit exit while the race finished under green. I believe he was 3rd at the point his fuel ran out. He led quite a few laps against some serious Nascar veterans. I don’t ever recall him running so good. They had a good truck at Talladega.
well maybe next time. sorry to hear that. thanks for the answer.
carol aka oz
If nothing else, he got more exposure in that one race than in his whole life combined and led against Nascar’s best in a home based effort. The result wasn’t what he had hoped, but it was a good day.
chris fontaine looked like a super star
take kyle bush on his best day that was how fontaine was driving wish he had not ran out of gas he was running third with just few laps to go
man i bet he was mad he done great job
I hope what you just tried to convey wasn’t what I think. Are you telling me that you think Fontaine could take Kyle Busch on Kyle’s best day? If you meant something else, my apologies. If it is what you meant, may I inquire what type
of mineral spirits you are huffing?
cris and kevin
cris did his best,thats all any one can ask for . kevin ,you did a good job on setups. dave [pop] o’steen
Chris had a great day. He stayed out of trouble and ran the bottom pretty much the whole race. Kyle Busch is the one that pushed Chris into the lead.
Running out of fuel with a few laps to go must have been a real kick in the nads and the wallet.
Overall GREAT job Chris.
