Ty Dillon Finishes 14th in Rain-Shortened Quicken Loans 400

Ty Dillon drove Circle Sport Racing’s No. 33 Nexium® 24HR Chevrolet SS to a 14th-place finish Sunday afternoon in his sixth-career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series start. The 14th-place place finish is a career high for the 23-year-old driver, and marks back-to-back top-20 finishes for the No. 33 Chevy driver. Dillon qualified 22nd on Friday afternoon, but quickly proved his Nexium® 24HR Chevy was a top-10 car in the race. After three separate rain delays, the team finally got a long green-flag stretch starting on lap 51. Dillon drove from the 16th position to ninth and remained inside of the top 10 for a majority of the stretch. With the threat of rain, crew chief Slugger Labbe called Dillon to pit road to prepare him for the final run. Dillon came off pit road 15th and was caught a lap down when a caution flag came out on lap 124. The team took the wave around to get back on the lead lap, but ran out of time to race back inside the top 10. Heavy rain clouds circled Michigan International Speedway and shortened the 200-lap race to 138 laps when the skies opened up, leaving Dillon with his 14th-place finish.

Start – 22 Finish – 14 Laps Led – 0 Points – N/A

“Man, I really wanted to go back to green-flag racing. We had a really good car that was capable of finishing inside the top 10. We showed a lot of speed today, especially on that long green-flag stretch. That caution flag came out a little too early. I hope to get back in the Cup car again soon, it was a lot of fun. Thanks to all of our friends at Pfizer that work on the Nexium® 24HR team, the car looked great today.”
