Mark Dilley (born January 20, 1969 in Barrie, Ontario) is a Canadian race car driver. He currently competes in the NASCAR Pinty's Series, driving the No. 02 Leland/BDI/PartSource Ford Fusion for Micks Motorsports.

Early career[edit]

Dilley drove in the CASCAR Super Series from 1990 until 2006 when the series was bought by NASCAR and rebranded as the Canadian Tire Series. Dilley won the CASCAR Super Series Championship in 1994.[1]

NASCAR Canadian Tire Series[edit]

Dilley began to race in the Canadian Tire Series in 2007 picking up sponsorship from Dodge, Wild Wing, and Leland Industries. He would go on to rack up 1 pole and 4 top fives in the series inaugural season, including a win at Riverside International Speedway.[2]

The 2008 season was more of the same for Dilley, adding 6 more top fives and another win, this time at the 2008 Coke Zero 200 race. Dilley set a new career high, finishing 6th in series points. He spent one more season with Whitlock Motorsports before moving on to Farwell Racing. In his second season with Farwell, Dilley would pick up his third series win, leading just 1 lap at Barrie Speedway. It would be the only lap Dilley would lead all season.[3]

In 2012 Dilley decided to run a limited schedule with his friend and 1993 CASCAR Super Series Kerry Micks in the #02 Ford for Micks Motorsports. Dilley, and oval expert, would race on the oval tracks, while Micks would take driving duties on the road courses.[4]
