Tyler "Ty" Dillon (born February 27, 1992) is an American professional stock car racing driver. He is the younger brother of fellow NASCAR driver Austin Dillon, son of former driver and RCR general manager Mike Dillon, and grandson of Richard Childress. He currently competes full-time in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, driving the No. 13 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 for Germain Racing, part-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, driving the No. 3 Chevrolet Camaro for Richard Childress Racing, and part-time in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, driving the Nos. 12 and 20 Chevrolet Silverados for Young's Motorsports.

Racing career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Dillon at the 2011 UNOH Dirtcar Nationals
Dillon at Rockingham in 2012

Dillon began his racing career in go-karts and Bandolero minicars.[1] Moving up to the K&N Pro Series East in 2009,[2] he competed for the series championship in 2010, finishing 13th in points despite only competing in eight races of the series' ten-race schedule.[3] He scored one win in the series, in August 2010 at Gresham Motorsports Park.[4]

After making three starts and winning twice, at Kansas Speedway and Rockingham Speedway, in the ARCA Racing Series in 2010,[5] Dillon ran his first full season in the series in 2011, winning seven times on his way to winning the series championship.[6][7] He defeated Chris Buescher by a 340-point margin for the championship,[8] but lost the series rookie-of-the-year award to Buescher by two points.[9]

NASCAR[edit]

Camping World Truck Series[edit]

Dillon made his debut in the Camping World Truck Series in 2011,[1] finishing eighteenth at Kentucky Speedway,[10] in preparation for running the full series schedule for Richard Childress Racing in 2012. In only his second Truck Series start at Texas Motor Speedway, he finished third.[11] At Homestead, he finished 6th, right in front of his brother Austin, who was crowned champion that night after the race was called due to rain.[12]

In the 2012 NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona, he finished 9th.[13] The following race at Martinsville saw Dillon score his best career finish, 2nd, finishing behind teammate Kevin Harvick.[14] He recorded top ten finishes in each of the first five Truck Series races of the year. On August 31, he scored his first career Camping World Truck Series win at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Returning to the Camping World Truck Series in 2013, Dillon went on to win at Kentucky Speedway in the Camping World Truck Series on June 27 of that year. In late August 2013, Dillon was leading the final lap of the Truck Series' first race in Canada against 17-year-old rookie Chase Elliott. In the final turn, Dillon and Elliott made contact, with Dillon winding up hitting the tire barrier and Elliott winning the race. Dillon afterwards stated that the next time they raced each other "he won't finish the race".[15] At Texas, Dillon won the 100th race for a No. 3 car/truck in NASCAR.[16]

Dillon finished second in the 2013 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series standings, behind Matt Crafton; he was named the series' Most Popular Driver at the season-ending awards banquet.[17]

In 2014, Dillon returned to the Truck Series for the Mudsummer Classic at Eldora Speedway, racing the same truck he had driven in the previous year's race.[18] Dillon finished 5th in the event.[19] Dillon later entered the final race of the season in the No. 9 for NTS Motorsports in place of Brennan Newberry, finishing 7th.[20]

In 2015, Dillon drove three races in the No. 33 Chevrolet for GMS Racing at Daytona, Atlanta and Eldora where he earned two top tens in these races. Dillon drove one race in the No. 31 Chevrolet for NTS Motorsports at Bristol where he was crashed late in the race.

Dillon returned to the CWTS in 2017 at Martinsville, driving the #99 Chevrolet Silverado for MDM Motorsports and finished 5th. Dillon also ran at Eldora for the 2017 Mudsummer Classic, finishing 12th.

Xfinity Series[edit]

Dillon at Road America in 2014

In early June 2012, Dillon made his debut in the Nationwide Series in the 5-hour Energy 200 at Dover International Speedway.[21] In July he finished third in the first Nationwide Series race held at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.[22] In August 2013, it was announced that Dillon would be moving full-time to the Nationwide Series for 2014, where he would drive the No. 3 Chevrolet for RCR, replacing brother Austin.[23]

Dillon won his first career Nationwide Series pole at Las Vegas. He won a second pole which came at Kentucky. His third career pole came at Kansas.

On July 26, 2014 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Dillon got by Kyle Busch on the final restart and held off Busch to win the race. Dillon finished second to Chase Elliott in the 2014 NNS Rookie of the Year standings.

In 2015, Dillon began with a third-place finish at the season opener at Daytona. On August 8, 2015 at Watkins Glen, Dillon was involved in a huge fight with Regan Smith when Dillon dumped Smith in turn one and caused Smith to finish in the 20th position. Despite going winless, Ty Dillon finished a career-best 3rd place in the final point standings for 2015 with a career high in top-10s (25) and top-5s (12).

In 2016 at the season opening race at Daytona, Dillon scored his fourth career Xfinity Series pole, and his first since the 2014 season. Dillon brought home a $100,000 bonus by winning the Dash 4 Cash at Richmond finishing second, after the three other Dash 4 Cash drivers all crashed out of the race in the same wreck, late in the going. He finished 2nd to Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the race. Coming back to Daytona, Dillon drove a very special Bass Pro Shops/NRA Museum paint scheme for the July 4th weekend, in which he finished 14th place.

For 2016, NASCAR used the Chase format in the Xfinity Series. Dillon made the Chase in 2016 on points, but was eliminated after a close battle with Justin Allgaier. Dillon finished 5th in points for 2016 with five season-best second-place finishes (Richmond, both Iowa races, Dover during the chase, and Homestead).

Dillon will run 27 Xfinity races in 2017; he will not run the Iowa races in June and July, Road America, Mid-Ohio, Kentucky in September, and Homestead. Although he moved up full-time to the Cup Series in 2017, Dillon continued to drive the No. 3 Chevrolet Camaro for RCR but now on a part-time basis. At the Xfinity opener at Daytona, Dillon was running up front until the last restart when he ran out of fuel and finished 19th. After two more bad finishes, Dillon began a so-far three race streak of top-10 finishes, with two consecutive 10th place outings at Phoenix and Auto Club and then an 8th place run at Texas. He followed this finish with another top-10 finish with a 6th place outing at Bristol and 19th place outing at Richmond. He then scored a 14th place outing at Talladega. He then finished 18th at Charlotte. Dillon then scored three consecutive top 10 finishes, by coming home in 10th place at Dover, 8th place at Pocono and then 6th place at Michigan. At Daytona, Dillon finished 21st after a crash. He finished 5th at Kentucky. He then finished 5th at Loudon. Then at Indianapolis, Dillon finished 10th.

He then finished 7th at Watkins Glen. Then at Bristol, he finished 4th. At Darlington, Dillon finished 7th. Then at Richmond, he finished 3rd. At Chicagoland, he finished 8th place.

Monster Energy Cup Series[edit]

Dillon at the 2015 Daytona 500

On July 15, 2014, RCR announced Dillon will make his Sprint Cup Series debut in the No. 33 with Hillman-Circle Sport LLC in partnership with RCR in the Oral-B USA 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.[24] After qualifying 29th, he finished 25th. Dillon returned to the No. 33 for the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500 at Phoenix International Raceway, qualifying 26th and finishing 27th.[25]

In September 2014, sponsor Yuengling and RCR announced they would field the No. 33 for Dillon at the 2015 June Pocono race.[26] On December 9, RCR stated Dillon would drive the No. 33 for Hillman-Circle Sport in the Daytona 500.[27]

In 2016, Dillon joined Circle Sport – Leavine Family Racing, splitting the No. 95 with Michael McDowell with sponsorship from Cheerios and Nexteer among others.[28] Like the 33, the 95 has an alliance with RCR. Dillon also ran the No. 14 for Stewart-Haas Racing, substituting for an injured Tony Stewart.[29] Dillon would finish 7th at Talladega for the running of the GEICO 500 but the credit would go to Stewart since he started the race. At Pocono, Dillon would lead his first three laps in Sprint Cup competition. Dillon took over for Regan Smith in the No. 7 Tommy Baldwin Racing Chevy at the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400 as Smith flew back to North Carolina to await the birth of his child.[30]

On November 28, 2016, it was announced that Dillon would replace veteran Casey Mears, who has been with Germain for six years, in the No. 13 GEICO Chevrolet for Germain Racing in 2017.[31] Along with Geico, Twisted Tea will be a primary sponsor of Germain Racing for a few races in 2017. Dillon began the 2017 season with a crash in the Daytona 500. The next race at Atlanta, he scored a 15th place outing. The next week at Las Vegas, he finished 21st place. He followed this up with a 16th place outing at Phoenix, a 22nd place finish at Martinsville, and then a 17th place finish at Texas. He followed this finish with 15th place outing at Bristol and then a 26th place outing at Richmond.

At Talladega, Dillon finished a career best 13th, after avoiding the 'Big One'. He followed this finish with a 14th place outing at Kansas. This was followed by a 36th place finish at Charlotte. Dillon led 27 laps at Dover and was running with the leaders but wrecked in overtime and finished 14th. At Daytona, Dillon had the lead with 3 to go but faded to 16th on the final restart. At Kentucky, Dillon finished 33rd.

In the second part of 2017, Dillon managed to score 8 top-20 finishes including two career best finishes of 11th. He finished 24th in the final points standings.

After a rough first half of 2018, Dillon managed to avoid several 'big ones' to finish a career-best 6th place in the Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona. This is Dillon's first career top-10 finish in the Monster Energy Cup Series in 71 starts.

Other racing[edit]

Dillon in the 2014 Trans-Am race at Road America

On June 16, 2014, Dillon announced he would make his Trans-Am Series debut at Road America for Miller Racing in the No. 12 TA2 Chevy Camaro.[32] After starting 6th, Dillon finished 4th.[33]

Personal life[edit]

Ty grew up in the piedmont of North Carolina with his parents, Tina and ex-driver Mike Dillon, and his brother Austin Dillon who also drives in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. Ty's grandfather is Richard Childress, a North Carolina businessman and former driver. On December 28, 2013, Dillon announced his engagement to his girlfriend Haley Carey, a former driver herself and Charlotte Hornets cheerleader.[34] They were married by Dillon's good friend Ray Wright on December 20, 2014 at Childress Vineyards.[35] On May 26, 2017, Fin & Field named Dillon the Most Interesting Sportsman in the World for the Spring of 2017.[36]

On November 20th, 2017 Ty became a father as he and Haley Dillon had a daughter named Oakley Ray Dillon.
