Austin Dillon and RIchard Childress Racing’s No. 3 American Ethanol Team Earn 24th-Place Finish at ISM Raceway

“I want to thank everyone at American Ethanol and congratulate them on earning a huge milestone in our sport this weekend with 15 million miles driven on E15. Even though we didn’t qualify as well as we had hoped, we had a lot of confidence that we were going to have a solid day in the No. 3 American Ethanol Chevrolet at ISM Raceway. Danny Stockman and the No. 3 American Ethanol team did their best to make improvements throughout the race, including making a big swing at adjustments during a pit stop between Stages 2 and 3. We ended up with a pass-through penalty at the end of Stage 3 for speeding exiting pit road, and that put a further damper on our day, even though our Chevrolet was definitely handling better towards the end of the race. We know we can improve on this so we’ll go back to the drawing board on this one. We’re looking forward to the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway next week and ending the season with a strong run.”

Daniel Hemric Brings No. 8 Cat Large Dozers Chevrolet Home
in the 21st Position at ISM Raceway

“We made small gains today at ISM Raceway, and that’s what it is all about. The No. 8 Cat Large Dozers Chevrolet was too tight for much of the day, but Luke Lambert and all the guys on this crew kept adjusting on it to help the handling. We made some gains in the Rookie of the Year battle today, so we’ll go to Homestead next week to try to finish the year out right and lock up that rookie title. I’m proud of this entire team and all their hard work all season long. I’m hopeful we can end the season on a positive note with that rookie of the year accomplishment.”
